Bargaining with dealers is always an option, however you might receive the cold shoulder from some vendors if they classify you as a souvenir matryoshka-shopper.
Remember that paintbrushes that artists are using to draw traditional miniatures on fine lacquer wooden boxes are not making teeny tiny little bitty color dots… Which likely to be reflected in the price of the end-product.
Bargain hard, and shop around, but don’t expect 50% price drop form originally quoted price.
I found that most vendors will accept rounded down amount after just a few min of negotiating.
