Dear Fashionistas in Saigon 🙂
Yes Vintage Market exists in HCMC 🙂
And now that you know about my passion for vintage market and that I had the occasion to visit some of them last week end, let’s do a little review.
I have been to three different markets so far:
I have been quite a few times to the Flea Market (and check my previous review of the Flea Market in D7) and every time I am quite happy to see the same little faces presenting their cute accessorizes, clothes and cosmetics 🙂 Locations in both D7 and D2 are great and the market is always big, (around 40 stalls or more…) Of course D7 is a little bit far for me but it is interesting to see the difference according to which market you go. I feel there is much more clothes in D7 and more vintage accessorizes in D2. But is it a true fact? 2 weeks ago was the first market in D2 so it might change.
However, I was really disappointed by the Dream Market in D1. It was supposed to be a huge thing during 2 days, and I faced 15 stands, selling stuffs, no even vintage. From what I had imagined on Facebook, I thought it would be a big event where all the market lovers will be…not at all. So yea, I am happy to know that it is not worth it now and that I can focus more on the other markets.
Regarding the Hello WeekEnd Market, it was a big surprise! It was a Vietnamese fashionistas market, so almost no foreigners, which is cool so I can get to know better the Vietnamese fashion world. It was very big! Maybe more stands than the Flea Market. Music and sun were here, which made me like the event. I was happy to see where all the crazy i-phone accessorizes come from 🙂 However, I didn’t discover new things, apart from this little candle women, doing citronella, vanilla, green tea, lemongrass homemade candles #sweet. All the stands were quite normal: clothes, shoes, jewelleries, tattoos ….
If you know any other #Vintage markets around HCMC, please let me know, I will be happy to visit 🙂
Oh yeah, a new kind of market is going to start: typical Sunday morning market: 100% SUNDAY. With vegetables, fruits, flowers, food, but also smoothies, games for kids, bbq, vintage clothes and cosmetics 🙂 All made-in-Vietnam, with certificated producers so great quality, safe and traceable. It’s in D2, check out the details here 🙂
