Not exactly a shopping tip but I couldn't find a suitable page to put this one on !!??
Changing money in Kathmandu -- There are literally 1000's of money changers but my tip would be to try " Fuji Money Changer " on Thamel Chouk, I found P K Bhattachan the manager a good guy to deal with and if you are changing a largish amount of money then they are willing to give you a better rate than advertised -- give them a try !!

2006 -- I was back in this, My Favourite Money Changer in Kathmandu and Yes -- He Again gave me a better rate that All of his competitors -- See if he will do the same for you !! -- Happy Travels in Nepal -- Rob

I was back at Fuji Money Changer again this year (2008) and pleased to report that their exchange rate are still the best that I was able to find in Kathmandu

I was back changing my money at a better than average rate with Mr Fuji on my 2012 trip ;-)
