Although Saturday is a regular market day, a lot of stalls in the beads area were empty.
Despite the fact that about half or more of the stalls in the bead area were empty, there was still a dazzling selection.
New beads were very reasonably priced at the Agomanya market. Typical price for new beads were two bracelets for one cedi. The exchange rate at the time was US$1 = 1.5 Ghana cedis, so the two-bracelet strands were only about seventy cents.
Vendor untying the strands of blue beads which I was about to buy.
All you had to do was decide on a color. They had every color you’d ever need.
It was almost overwhelming, in the very best way.
Got a chevron bracelet strand for 8 cedis.
Edna and I didn’t spend a full hour buying beads when we were ready to go back to the car. If it hadn’t been so brutally hot, I would have stayed much longer.
