While browsing the stores at Pier 39 in San Francisco, we came across Russka Babushka Dolls, a tiny store on the top floor down by the carousel. They have some really lovely painted babushka dolls, in prices ranging from $20 all the way up to the thousands. The salesladies were patient and helpful, and seeing as my 7 year old daughter fell in love with them, and daddy was along(who happens to be wrapped around her little finger!) one lady spent almost half an hour telling my daughter about all the different ones in the shop. Of course she was quite happy showing her the ones costing over a hundred dollars. I politely and honestly told her that I felt that was too expensive she happily steered my daughter towards the less expensive ones, and helped her choose one that was on sale for less than $50. I felt the service was excellent, if you are not wanting to buy, be honest, and tell them you would just like to look, and you shouldn't be pressured.
