Have you bought any cases from those carts or nail shops? i've actually never checked out local shops. Sounds cool. I should check out some time.

Hmm sorry I don't get what you mean by nail shops :S Do they sell cellphone cases in nail salons where you live? I never seen that Anyway I was referring to dedicated cellphone and cellphone accessory shops in Asian malls or local Asian shops. There maybe also be those shops that sell random things, you might find one for cheap in those places too.
As for how much, $20-$30 should be more than enough, depending on the exact case you want and your phone model. iPhones have some really unique and pretty cases which are found in Asian malls/shops but I've never asked how much they are. But considering the more regular ones are $5-$10, these might be in your $20-$30 range. For less common phones, those cases might be more expensive because they aren't manufactured as much and they may not be as pretty since manufacurers don't much/any incentive to make it so.

Yes, ditto. Since these cases originate from Asia (China, Taiwan, Korea) too.
Asian malls in your area, or those Taiwanese stores that sell stationery, cute Korean/Jap stuff, makeup, circle-lenses etc etc ... I have seen them carry those bling-bling iphone cases that are popular with some people.
For the whimsical-looking and trendy ones .... try fairs or night markets, IF they exist in your area.
The Asian stalls set up in bigtime with their phone wares. - cases, charges, laptop/ipad covers etc etc. And they're the trendy fashionable and fun designs too.
Or the Angry Birds, Totoro type if that's what you fancy.
I find what the big stores carry are normally the dead boring ones from known manufacturers. And way more exy too.
Was looking for a camera case last yr ... and not willing to pay what Sony and Golla charged ($25-30 and up for the designs I really liked), although I did like a couple of their designs.
So I searced further afield and looked around - I know a couple of dollar stores which has pretty good merchandiser-shopper (ie whoever stocks the store knows how to buy hip stuff, which doesn't look cheap although it IS cheap) = I got a 'similiar-to-Golla designs' camera case for only $3(!!!!) there.
The only thing missing is the Golla tag.
Or just buy a basic one if really these stores don't exiist in your area, and brainstorm your own design. Stickers from a craft/scrapebk store for eg (you can fashion adn create you own paisley designs).
Or you can ask the stranger next time where they got their case from, if something interesting catches your eye. (I just did it with someone's harcut yesterday - it's got a slant my hairdresser cannot achieve. Most people are happy to tell you).
