Bargaining, in most other shopping venues, is acceptable; and necessary to get the best price. Bargaining is said to be an art, but skills can be honed by practice. The most important factor in getting a bargain may be the willingness to walk away. Very few items are exclusive to a given vendor.
Knowing the right price is important, so you know at what price to start your offers. Simply saying "drop the price" again and again won't get you to the best point. One method is to ask the price of something then offer about one third of the price. If the person continues to negotiate by making counter offers, you have not started too low. If the vendor refused to talk to you after your offer, go to another vendor selling the same item and raise your first offer a bit.
