Fixed Price Shopping

One Stop Shopping in KUTA SQUARE


If you’re a little “over” bartering at market stalls, head to Kuta Square for no effort shopping.  Here you will find a variety of shops including jewellery, shoes, sports and clothing stores with fixed prices.  Although fixed, prices are still very reasonable and allow for a wonderfully relaxed shopping experience.

Matahari Department store is located in this precinct too.  With air-conditioning and fixed prices, it’s a shoppers dream!  It covers several levels and sells almost everything.  Don’t forget to take advantage of the supermarket and reputable Money Changer on the ground floor also!

If you’ve worked up an appetite whilst shopping, there are several restaurants situated in this locale.  You’ll also find standard takeaway staples, McDonalds and KFC here too.

With Kuta Square on the doorstep to Kuta Art Markets, it’s too good a stress-free shopping destination to pass up.

HINT:  Drop hubby off at Gloria Jeans whilst you shop til you drop.   They sell decent coffee here and delish iced coffee too.  There’s also free wi-fi and he can chill in air-conditioning as you take advantage of the shopping bargains throughout Kuta Square.

Bluebird taxis’s are plentiful in this part of busy Kuta so there will be no problem in getting your shopping back to your hotel or villa once you have had enough.

Happy Shopping!!

FIXED PRICE Shopping Tip in Sanur:



If you want hassle-free bargain shopping in Sanur, head to “Tootsies”. Tootsies sell clothing for adults and kids, handbags, shoes, jewellery, quilts, sunglasses, table runners….and more.

The glass-fronted shop is air-conditioned and nicely set out.  It’s not huge but has a good selection and prices are very good.  In fact, you can use them as a guide for other non-fixed market shopping,  Eg,  Roxy/Quicksilver/Billabong jumbers $10Aus, Vans $10Aus, Nikes $15Aus, Sunglasses/hats $2.50Aus.

There are PLUS sizes available also.  If Tootsie has not got what you’re after, she will get it in for you.

The easiest way to find Tootsies is to take a taxi to Jl Pantai Sindhu.  Walk towards the beach and when you get to the path that runs parallel to the ocean, turn left. It’s about 100-150m along the path that you will see Tootsies Restaurant sign. Her shop is directly behind the restaurant and is over 3 shops

Address: Tootsie  No 28, Sindhu Beach market, Sanur 

Phone: (0361) 285184

Where to purchase MANCHESTER bargains….


You will find manchester galore and service plus at Matahari Department store in Kuta Square.

Towels, tablecloths, bathmats, sheet sets, pillows…… You just have to look to find what you’re after.  With so many 40 and 50% OFF SALES happening, it is not difficult to secure a “bargain”.

This store, along with Centro Department store in Discovery Mall, are  my “go to” for quality bedding.  High thread count bed sheets and pillow cases can be purchased here at much reduced prices to what you would pay back home.   I also purchase luxurious pillows for sleeping here.  Again the quality is superb and the prices ridiculous eg. the quality of bed pillows that would sell for around $200-plus each in Australia, I purchase at approximately Rp400,000 each in Matahari or Centro.

The sales people at these department stores are plentiful too.  (Myer and David Jones in Australia could take a leaf out of their book!)

*A word of warning with sheet sizes:  Do take your regular sizes from home and compare them with those written on the packets in Matahari since Indonesian sizes differ.   (I find that I can purchase King sheets that have more depth to the mattress, hence the fitted sheet has an easier fit to an Australian size mattress and the loose sheets too are more generous).


HINT:  Watch the waves roll in over Kuta beach while you chill with a cool, cold drink at the restaurant on the same floor as Manchester in Centro at Discovery Mall, between shopping for bargains.

Happy Shopping!!

FIXED PRICE market stalls in LEGIAN

If you are looking for no hassle FIXED PRICE market stall type gear in Legian head to either:

1.  Ketuts at Jl. Saha Dewa Gg. Sorga No 2 (Garlic Lane)  – this market stall is popular and gets VERY busy.  It is recommended you get there around 9am, when it opens.  The main items sold here are clothing & bags with a good selection of the typical in demand market gear. Numerous items are available for selection, with assistance from either Ketut or her family members who work there.  It does get hot in her stalls but a welcome free bottle of water is given when you arrive. Ketut also stocks 5 & 6 XL so it is popular among big western people.   There is also a fixed price store adjacent to Ketuts which sells a few homeware products eg. cushion covers and table runners, small stone plaques, aluminium silver goods.

2.  Miss Debbies on Sahaweda Street (Garlic Lane), Legian (opposite Ketut’s laneway) – There is a very good variety of goods here, including a fair selection of home-wares .  Go to the shopfront and they will take you down a nearby lane to her compound where she has goods well displayed in an open area on tables and in rooms.  Surprisingly, I have never seen Miss Debbies really busy so it’s a good location to browse at your leisure with often a cool breeze blowing through the compound to make for more comfortable shopping.  A welcome bottle of free water is also given here. (This is my FAVE fixed price shop!!)

3.  Turikas shop, Art Market Melasti St 45B Legian (corner of Melasti St and Garlic Lane).  A very obliging lady who is arguably not as well-known as Miss Debbies and Ketuts (above).  You can put in an order and pick it up in a day or two.  She will go out of her way to accommodate your needs and there is usually a good selection of clothes in her shop.

4.  Sita fashion, 373 Jalan Legian ( on the left between Melasti st and Padma st).  This shop sells a variety of items and again just saves you the hassle of having to negotiate at the typical market stalls,  Sold here are metal wall art eg. fish/geckos/birds etc to go on your wall, stone carvings, some jewellery, pottery vases, artwork as well as handbags.

5. Santa’s Shop,  A good selection of clothes here catering to most sizes. The shop is at the north end of Garlic Lane, beach side of the street, about 5 shops before the end.  Look out for the colourful, girl’s fairy dresses hanging out the front.  Address is : 23 Sahaweda St (Garlic Lane), Legian  (Closest to Padma Street end).  Phone is 081 7473 3463.

It has been said that comparisons have been made between market stall shopping, via negotiation and market shopping, via fixed price shops with the fixed price shops winning hands down in the time stakes.  It is a wonderful option (and often a relief!……lol)  to have these fixed price stores to attend for hassle-free shopping.

Happy shopping!
