Such a contrast to the shopping malls of Seoul. Mostly vintage, aka used, clothes. Some street food, nothing too tasty (I love street food). Most of the stuff is of low quality and cheap. It’s still worth a walk through.

It's a great place if you like collecting old/antique stuff. Or if you want to find something unique as decoration for your shop/cafe/room. And it's located not far from Sinseoldong station.

I'm sorry, but I'm just not into buying other peoples junk. We went hoping to find some craft shops selling local stuff, but what we found were piles and piles of junk. Anything you can imagine piled to the ceiling, rows and rows of it....More
