we were shopping around since it was the last day in siem reap and found this shop selling an iron Buddha's palm paint coated to look aged. these palms are everywhere and we had gotten one each for $9 the previous night so we weren't really thinking of buying another one, but were just looking around. the shopkeeper saw us pointing at it and asked us to quote a good price, saying he will see what he can do. after thinking through, i quoted a price of $5, which he was abit reluctant. then, he said if i took 2, he would give it to me for $8. wow! we chatted for a while and he told me he had just arrived from another province, and that he had just opened his shop here a few months ago. he even cleaned the iron palms thoroughly and wrapped them up safely. talk about good service at no cost!

most items sold in the markets are quoted 3-4 times above their original prices to tourists so that he ycan be bargained, and i wouldn't be surprised if the plams could be sold for lesser than $4 each!
