We were in Nassau in Feb. and went to the straw market. The people there are trying to make a living selling everything from handmade straw bags, t-shirts, hats, beach towels, beaded necklaces and other souveniers. They're really not that pushy, they ask what they can show you and they do try to bargain because they need the money. Every time we would ask how much something was they would tell us and then would ask how much we want to spend. A little boy even asked if he could sing us a song for $1.00. If you want some inexpensive souveniers and don't mind the people trying to bargain then you should go. We would just tell them that we were just looking and they would leave us alone. It's not as bad as I've heard about people in Jamaica.
