I picked up a soft pink belt here, Italian-made, for 15 Euro. I bargained him down from 18.50 Euro. I had seen similar belts elsewhere for 12 Euro, but you can only do so much bargaining.

There are literally thousands of leather goods to choose from, pocketbooks, belts, even jackets and briefcases. Yes, you have to be choosy, but the quality of the leather is excellent, and the prices can't be beat. I got 2 pocketbooks, and my husband a beautiful briefcase - really soft leather.
They also sell a lot of handpainted ceramics there too. One thing we noticed was that a lot of the booths there have stores right behind, so if you don't see exactly what you want, they'll just show you into the store. We made one misttake on ceramics. We bought a lovely combination salt/pepper/oil/vinegar set, but when we got home, we saw there were 2 salt shakers and no pepper. Look carefully before they wrap it up.
They have nice quality scarves and ties. Again, be choosy but you can do really well there.
This market was much nicer and much larger than the straw market just a few blocks away, and I recommend it for a fun time.
