Flea Markets around HCMC

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 🙂

Saigon Flea Market !

Saigon Flea market

Seriously, it’s an amazing event not to be missed if you live in Saigon! The Flea market is a vintage & retro market for clothes lovers, jewelry lovers and cosmetic lovers (me :D) but decoration lovers as well 🙂 More than 50 stands are presenting their clothes, bracelets, bags, products, stuff,… And it’s just so cool 🙂 I used to love the vintage markets when I was in England, and I am so happy there are few here as well 😀 Moreover I found great stuff you will see later in pictures !!

I discovered it on Facebook one month ago, so I missed the previous one by one day…. As you can imagine, I was really waiting for the one this month. Yeah it’s one time a month, but no worries it’s going to change soon: 2 per month in D7 and ……. in D2, where I live #Amazing !! In the meantime, I discovered another one called The Dream Market and the next one is on October 12 and 13th in District 1 🙂

For this edition I went with my three friends Rebecca, Ngan and Emma and they all loved it so we will probably be back for the next one together 🙂 (if they still like to wait for me while I am asking so many things to the beauty stands haha).

Here is what I found 😀

– A beautiful see-through hand bag (I have no idea how I am going to wear it but I am excited about the idea !!

– A magic oil, which is a mixture of Olive oil, Tee leaves and Green tea powder, but which smells like Frangipani oil or Ylang Ylang oil, so weird but lovely 🙂

– Green tea powder, to make my own mixture … 🙂 (I will let you know)

– A vintage ring

– Millions of Business cards !

– A soft green tee-shirt

– Two cute baskets

I also got a red nail varnish from Nails Inc. thanks to ….. a distributor machine ! What a GREAT concept.

Simple process: If you are a Vodafone customer you receive a special coin, you insert it in the machine —> a red nail varnish falls 🙂 like if you were buying a Twix or a coke haha ! Crazy isn’t it? and all free 🙂
