The Calangute beach and its surrounding area host many vendors exhibiting their wares from Kashmir to Tibet and South India. The Holiday Street, which runs parallel to the beach, is one place where many small shacks and stalls are arranged to form a serpentine queue of these shops selling pretty much everything that a shopaholic desires.
The goods available range from authentic Kashmiri shawls and woolens, handicraft articles, Himalayan curios as well as junk and silver metal and jewelry. The Gujarati, Rajasthani, Karnataka handloom and handicraft stalls boast their expertise in textiles. Many foreigners have also set up small shops for selling their goods and making some quick buck.
