hello, have been visiting your blog quite awhile~=)

bangkok is such a lovely place for craft lovers!
to shop for material, a place not-to-be-missed is chatuchak. u can check out the map online, there's a section sells craft stuffs one.

and also chinatown, there's a lane, but i donno the name (maybe it's the lane that Ann talked about).

there's one floor of department store also selling crafty things in siam paragon(if not mistaken). and also a shop called Loft got lots of cool stuffs. it's in the shopping malls area, but i forgot which shopping mall already~ -.-lll

sorry for this bit of infos. haha~ enjoy your trip!

p/s: u can have a look at my bangkok photo albums here for more infos

Hi, mermer. I'll be going to Bangkok soon also in Feb.

Must go to the street behind the opposite Mall (I forgot the name, it's an old mall) that connecting with Platinium Mall (whole sale Mall)... The street sell alots of nice and trendy and cheap! cloths. Many ppl go there buy for their shop (to sell). The street will open in the early morning from 530am till 2pm only. Go early then you'll get good stuff especially if go during weekend.

And, go Naraya in CityHall if I not mistaken. It's a complex with all branded shop around Siam. But this Thai local brand - Naraya is selling nice and cheap bags and pouches. It's in LG or G floor. A big shop though.

ann, thanks for your info about the wholesale fabric and craft thing. I also wanna look for stuffs like that. Can't find nice fabric in town.

mer mer said...

ann + chensy: Thanks for your info!! muakzzz~~~^^ It's my first trip to Bangkok actually~~hope to hunt for more fabrics and local designer brand. I am not so into branded stuff. Not my level to carry it yet. too expensive~~~ TwT

chensy said...

mermer: for your information, the Naraya is a local brand and it's really cheap as the price is not like branded. One bag selling at RM30 -RM55, one set of pouch (3 sizes) selling in RM10. Some make-up bag at RM6. You'll be crazy if you're in that shop. Many Singaporean and Japanese likes that brand.
