Today, my taxi driver told me it's bad luck to buy amulets. Someone else is supposed to give them to you. But in case you really want a particular icon and no one is offering to foot the bill, you can buy it yourself and tell others you're "renting" it. I guess the idea is that you can't own a god or an idol, but I'm sure glad they're available for rent.
