    How much do carvings like this cost in Nassau?

    DH loves things like this, I'm hoping I can find a wood carver at the Straw Market and get him one, but I want to be prepared for how much I should spend. Thanks!

    Just an FYI,
    Not all of the carvings are carved in Nassau by the vendors. Some are actually shipped in that way. They may be working on an item to make you think they carved all of them, but they didn't.

    Look underneath. If you see a Made In China tag, put it back down and walk away.

    They are pretty cheap but they are made in china. It was obvious most of the stuff in the straw market was mass produced and imported. every booth had the exact same stuff.

    funny story--this past summer we were at Chincoteague Island VA and my kids just HAD to have these little personalized bottles of sand and seashells. "it;s sand from chincoteage!". I knew better, but they had their own money so whatever...

    A few weeks ago we were in Cocoa Beach and guess what--the exact same personalized bottles. Which DH and I also saw at a gift shop in Nassau...
