High pressure sales tactics. Immediately upon arriving, the door was locked and shades closed. We were forced to listen to two long speeches while I saw my tour guide negotiating his cut with the owner. I was eavesdropping, it was 20%. I saw my tour guide turn into a salesperson and try to get a little old lady to pay $1800 for an “amazing deal” necklace that I knew should be sub-$500. I did a google image search and saw the same necklace for $300 online, so I confirmed it. One thing I know is jewelry and this place sells jewelry pieces at 5 times the going rate in the U.S. That is HUGE inflation. I went to Jerusalem and saw the SAME olive wood carvings for WAY less money. I’m talking exactly the same pieces but only a fraction of the cost. I expect slightly inflated prices in touristy areas, but this disgusted me. Especially the slimy tactics I witnessed and how my tour guide assisted in taking advantage. I confronted the owner and he said if I am truly a Christian I would want to support a Christian business, and that their jewelry pieces are one of a kind and the best quality in the entire world so I didn’t know what I was talking about. That’s hilarious since I have taken gemology courses. I was then followed by 3 big guys the rest of the time to ensure I didn’t talk to any guests.

We were taken here by our tour guide who told us that he had negotiated a special 30% discount! The store is huge and we were given a speech by the owner when we entered. I suspect a lot of the goods are made by machine. The displays are massive but some of the wood carvings are so large that you couldn't get them out of the shop, let alone on the plane. Prices are high and similar to those in Oberammergau. There are plenty of staff and they follow you around with hard sell. There is plenty to like and admire here but I thought it was all overpriced.

We felt TRAPPED on two different Israel tours by two different tour companies. You are inside these stores with your group for over an hour; continuously approached like you are on a carnival midway. Watched as they and the tour guides that are not Jewish and the bus drivers especially will pat & pour over any females in your group [something foreign in their culture] in order to SELL. Pressure was astounding & people falling for it. You have NO way of knowing where your money is going or to what group you are financing.

What a lovely shopping experience! The olive wood carvings are stunning . There are so many lovely nativity and other spiritual carvings. There is also a very nice jewelry area with gorgeous cross and other necklaces. The staff were so friendly and helpful and able to answer all my questions about shipping and about care of the olive wood carvings I purchased.

We visited this place and got a tour of the factory and difference between handcrafted works, part hand crafted and machine made and all machine made. Then there was a time to shop. The place offers Christians (a minority in the area, less than 1% of the population) an opportunity to make a living which is why much that could be machine made are not. When we were at the shop, the ratio of sales to tourist was "high" which lead to sales hovering. That is something "Americans" not use to, and tend not to like, but I chocked this up to cultural difference. Most olive wood items were religious in nature, but there are kitchen utensils and other practical items. I purchased a cutting board that met my needs. They had some huge pieces of art work that were impressive.

This store has a lot to look at and if you want something from Bethlehem that was made here this may be the place. It is not in Manger Square but it does have a large variety of things. We never felt pressured to buy anything although there was someone close by if we had a question.

This is one store that should come off the tour for Christians - they are not truthful on how the items are made and take you below the store to try and sell you on the craftsmanship that goes into the carvings - I was there 10 years ago, and it was the same old stumps that were there then and now. All I can say is buyer beware!

Our tour group of 50 was brought here by our tour guide. He hurried us past the shops on the street between the church and the bus to get us here. He obviously has a connection here. The high pressure in the store is annoying. Many of us felt we were in a used car lot. Stop and look at one piece and they pounce. The owner's greeting of the bus was just the beginning. Very distasteful experience.

Taken here by our tour, it is owned by the same family that owned the restaurant we ate at earlier. They did show us their facility for making some of the goods, insisted that they were providing employment/training in an area with very high unemployment. The carvings were beautiful, but everything is expensive. They gave us a "discount card" which meant we paid less than marked price, but no other negotiation was possible. In the end I bought a Christmas ornament and small nativity scenes ($20/each) for my daughters. I was surprised at the prices, but pleased with workmanship. We saw many other olive wood items in our wanderings in the area, but not of this quality.

This is a souvenir shop in Bethlehem where we can buy here. items for sale range from fairly complete ointment, olive wood carving, display walls, dates, chocolates, perfume and more. I purchased a display wall of ceramic here. the price is relatively more expensive than items offered on the roadside, but the quality of the goods is better and more varied. purchased items are packaged properly
