Day out at Seoul Folk Flea Market 서울풍물시장

Some of you will know that I love visiting markets. I’ve already blogged about my visit to 모란시장 / 가락시장. One of the weekends, I made a trip down to the Seoul Folk Flea Market 서울풍물시장 located near Shinseol-dong 신설동역 exit 10.

Even before reaching the main building of the flea market, there are many makeshift stalls along the streets and the place was crowded, with mainly ajusshis and a few tourists here and there.

Look at all these books! If you ar a collector, maybe you will find some interesting titles here.

They also sell more normal things there don’t worry. Loads of antiques and old stuff.

The flea market itself is a 2 storey building divided into various sections such as: vintage clothes, antiques, electronics etc. On a 2nd floor is a food court kind of area.

I WAS SO TEMPTED BY THESE. Miniature bottles of Korean liquor. DAMN I SHOULD HAVE BOUGHT!

Random ‘cafe’ among the stores. Pretty old school and nostalgic. They sell patpingsu for 2000won!

was tempted to get one of these oldies too!

Girls come fashionable in Korea. No matter what age.

An awesome sweet dog owned by a neighboring restaurant. I love meeting random dogs in Korea. And I think the ajusshi was just a random stranger. 😀

    Hey, I love your website ^^ I saw your posts on your Korean/Japanese journals, and it seems useful. But I don’t actually know what I would put in it. What did you do? Could you do a post on how to keep one?

      I mean, I still love your website. I meant you could ignore my question. (But I’m sure you understood that.)
