I actually got good enough at haggling that I was offered a job in an Arab shop in Jerusalem's Old City by a shop keeper. It's a lot of words and body language and knowing what something's worth (to you) - and often fun.

In a weird way, it's a better way to buy and sell: both buyer and seller were content with the prices if the deal goes through. How often do you buy (online/brick'n'mortor) and feel like you overpaid?

Ravings en masse^
