What's the availability of Catholic trinkets in SJPP; prayer cards, cross necklaces, and St. James pendants?

I see that there are plenty of options to buy trekking items, but curious about these, as I hope to purchase them as I begin the Camino.

The cathedral has a gift shop with prayer cards and other merchandise. There is another cathedral shop a block or so away where I purchased a children's book about the camino for my niece. I also purchased some St. James cross lapel pins (~red enamel with silver outline) in a gift shop near the cathedral. I also saw some high end rosaries in a jewelry shop between the cathedral and Praza de Cervantes. You may think about some stainless steel St. James cross stencils for Tarta de Santiago.

@CaminoLars was asking about St Jean Pied de Port.

I wouldn’t count on getting anything in SJPP. We spent an extra day there and I don’t remember any place that had some thing like that.

We didn’t go to every shop so it’s possible I missed something but I usually look for things like that myself. You will find lots of shells and trinkets.

I brought a lightweight wooden rosary, and a couple of prayer cards with me. I found it comforting to have these things from home. And now that I carried them all the way to Santiago, they’re even more special.

In Santiago it is completely different. You will find all the things.

In Saint Jean Pied de Port you might ask at the Bureau de Tourism, 14 Pl. Charles de Gaulle, if /where such a shop might be found.

Another appropriate place to ask is the Refuge Accueil Paroissial Kaserna at 43 Rue d'Espagne.This refuge is associated with the nearby local parish church, Notre-Dame du Bout du Pont Church, at 2 rue de la Citadelle.

Tongue in cheek, I have often referred to SJPdP as the Gatlinburg of Pays Basque. There is no shortage of gift and trinket shop.
