I love it when performers, artists, and vendors come to our school for the Nigerian Culture Day celebration. We were treated to exhibits, dances, food, and the mini-market, where students and parents had fun bargaining the Nigerian way. It is hard to find a better bargain elsewhere when there is a price cap for items sold (1,000 naira = about $7). These vendors usually refuse to bring their price down if you go to their stall in Lekki market, so I learned to wait for Nigerian Culture Day to do my Christmas shopping. My problem is I usually end up buying more things for myself, because most of my Filipino family and friends are not interested in baskets, word carvings, batiks, hand-woven fabrics, beads, and other handicrafts that are abundant in the Philippines.
