“Pretty cool, but the standard fare.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

As we walked, we found multiple vendors selling the same stuff at different prices. Buyer beware. It ends up being a few diamonds in the rough, but mostly the same chinese crap that every one else sells.

“A historical treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Although this spot is notorious for selling slaves brought overseas, it was also used to sell textiles, dyes, and randomness from overseas as well. Lots of fun shopping and dining throughout.
