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.
