I think some of you know I make jewelry and SID will be selling our stuff at our pop up shop in Canada next weekend! With that being said, I have been on the hunt for new material to start creating stuff here in SE Asia. After some good research I found 2 good locations I thought I should share with you guys, in case some of you dress makers, jewelry makers and what-ever other makers that could benefit from this:
DQM aka Dai Quang Minh
Chau Van Liem- Ward 14 (approx. 20 min from center of Saigon)
This craft market is huge and you can find a lot of great things such as: jewels, gems, beads, fabric, embroidery, zippers, charms, etc…Outside of the market is an alleyway with more shops as well.
Neuih Tam St- District 5 and about 8 mins from DQM
This street is lined with a lot of gold and silver shops but there are definitely some awesome bead shops. I would say DQM is cheaper though.
(previously i expressed a burning need to see elizabeth in this dress, and while the wonderful bookerjustdewitt rose admirably to the challenge, i’d already started drawing these two idiots sO HERE YA GO OLLIES OUT)
