After travelling through Namibia this is a good place to stock up on some souvenirs and there isn't much else to do in Windhoek anyway.

Lovely crafts, curios and trinkets from various artists. Wide variety of keepsakes from different areas. Very pricey however and definitely geared at the tourist with foreign currency.

Nothing made in China here in the craft center. It’s a pleasure to discover some of the great art piece Namibian are making as part of their tradition. Quite pricey

On the ground floor there are a number of stalls selling run of the mill curios at prices aimed at international travelers. Upstairs there are more interesting things. Not cheap but value for money. There is also a nice restaurant.
