Tourism is often encouraged by governments and development agencies as a way to support traditional economic and social activities in regional areas, especially peripheral or marginal places. Many small villages on the margins have turned to tourism as a development option and have pursued, either deliberately or by serendipity, a strategy of offering tourist shopping as a way to support local production of arts, crafts and specialist food and beverage (Murphy et al., 2011a). Small villages on the margins that provide retail outlets have been referred to as Tourist Shopping Villages (TSVs) (Getz, 2000). But there is little consistent evidence that the development of tourist shopping brings benefits for local residents and/or producers. This chapter will examine the challenges that tourism presents to these TSVs, focusing on the links between the availability of locally produced souvenirs, positive tourism experiences and the maintenance of support for local souvenir production and sales. In particular the chapter will analyse the nature of shopping experiences in these villages on the margin, the links between these experiences and consumption of locally produced souvenirs.
