Whether you're "Shopping for Buddhas" a la Jeff Greenwald, for souvenirs and collectibles to take home, or for cured meats and cheeses for a picnic in the park, the search (more than the transaction) can take you deeper into any local culture when you travel. And you're likely to meet some fascinating artisans and characters in the process.
