Vendor near the upper circuit at Salto Mbigua: "Beautiful hand painted magnets and wall hangings" Top 5 Page for this destination Parque Nacional del Iguazù Shopping Tip by Gypsystravels

Parque Nacional del Iguazù Shopping: 14 reviews and 8 photos

 
 

We were just finishing up taking some pics of the Salto Mbigua when I spotted a women with a bench selling some items, at closer look she was actually selling unique hand painted (no brush) magnets and wall hangings of the surrounding falls.

The images were quite beautiful and very unique so I decide to pick up a few magnets for a few friends back home as well as one for myself.

The vendor told me that the items were either painted by her father (who taught her how to do the intricate paintings with her fingers) or by her.

What to buy: For two small magnets I paid $12 pesos and for a medium size magnet I paid $8 pesos. The vendor did not allow me to take any photos of the items, but did allow me to snap a pic of her.
