A shop near Fushimi Inari selling Japanese fans and other traditional gifts

A shop near Fushimi Inari selling Japanese fans and other traditional gifts. This is on the market street which has to walk on to get from the Inari station to the Fushimi- Inari shrine. I saw several small shops in Japan specializing in only hand fans, or umbrellas or Japanese dolls. Although extremely colourful and exotic, I was wondering what kind of a profit these small stalls would make selling exclusively only such low value marchandise. I hope they are not made in China en masse! (Kyoto, Japan, Apr/ May 2019)
