Phang Nga has very little in the way of local handicrafts for sale other than fish-scale flowers made by the locals from many of the outlying islands such as Kho Yao Noi or exquisitely crafted bird cages and the like.
Artificial Flowers made by village women from rubber tree leaves can be purchased from the Agricultural Dept. Office in Phang-nga Town, and also from the Farm Women's Group in various districts.
Sarongs and other clothing products tend to come from other areas within Thailand, so if you are traveling elsewhere within the country and plan on doing some extensive shopping your best bet is to make your purchases there, if you are looking for bargains.
On the other hand, as is often the case, if you do see something that 'you simply have to have', then buy the item when you see it as you probably won't find the exact product quite like the one you originally fell for, somewhere else.
