Yes people do otherwise the shops wouldn't be there. My mother in law bought something 2 years ago. It was fun to watch her shop and deal with the people at the store. My wife bought something as well. They both thought they got a good deal.

Rum Cakes! My wife is in international merchandising and enjoyed using her professional skills to haggle with the vendors in the Straw Market. She got some nice baskets.
