Trading in South Africa

Does anyone know if there are things that South Africans would trade for crafts? When I went to Senegal they wanted to trade for lipsticks. Is there something that is in demand in S. A.? Thanks.

I think most people would prefer money rather than to barter since this is a far more sophisticated economy. However, you could aways try clothing or jewellry such as watches. Lipstick is unlikely to be a big hit many of the vendors are guys and most of the carved wooden crafts are worth a lot more than that.
