"Most any clothing item or..." Kenya Local Custom Tip by LadyKK

Kenya Local Customs: 60 reviews and 90 photos

Most any clothing item or novelty item can be used for 'trading' but don't expect to get a souvenir just for a trade item...always some shillings involved...take old logo tee shirts, baseball hats, company ball point pens, whatever as trade items. We took older clothes and as they got dirty (and they really do)just discarded them or traded them. Makes room in the bag for shopping & packing new stuff. Don't expect to buy clothing in Kenya...junk, cheap materials and construction..
