The Art of Bargaining/ Haggling While Shopping

This one's for our open market novices looking for some tips on haggling, this one from CNN Travel, visiting Mexican neighbor Guatamala, but the general idea is similar in Mexico, especially tourist open air markets or as many Americans may relate, Flea Markets or Farmers Markets.

I'd add that once experienced, you'll find the techniques you're comfortable with, and/ or not at all, and just shop the sticker based stores. This type of haggling shopping isn't for everyone but can make for some great fun if you know how to play the game. ;-)
