Enough globalization for the day? Come to "La Recova", La Serena's huge artisan market.  You'll find it all in hundreds of stands like this one: alpaca wool, lapis and silver jewelry, wooden musical instruments, iron sculpture, copper bas-reliefs, and much, much more.  For the chess player in your life, be sure to buy a local set here; the black pieces are Inca warriors and the white ones Spanish conquistadors.
