Here are some of the things available and their prices.

this is strip of string made of bark of a palm. Tie it round your wrist. R$2 each.
.
.

all sorts of biquini. R$25 each.
.
.

great idea that comes out expensive.
Its basically a laminated plywood (a nicer looking one) that is colored (sprayed, I guess) and sticked with photo such as Rio’s scenery, flowers. I forgot to ask the price of the large one, but there’s one with 5 slots where you can put your remote controls in boxes (imagine putting 5 remote control on their feets, in a row) costs R$35 (er… correct me if I guess wrong).
.
.

havaiana slippers (google for “Gisele Bundchen Havaianas flip flops”). These are different from normal Havaianas, due to the custom stitched decorations on top of the sandals.
Click on photo to see individual prices, ranging from R$30 to R$45.
.

Also another Havaianas.
Check out the price from the photo. The photo is a bit blurred, but I think it is R$50.

more havaianas slippers with different design. Should had wrote down the prices. Ányway, I think they sell for R$50 each.

.
.

I asked the artist/seller if this bird really exist. “Yup, they does. At northern of Brazil”. “The whole chicken is black in color?”. “Yup”. Er…. R$10??? I remember its quite cheap.
.
.

Ha! I forgot its name, but I remember its price R$7.
Its a food from northern east of Brazil.
