Don't bother unless you have time on your hands
Dec 2019
This street is not far from Ben Thanh market, so you could pop over. It is a small street with many shops, don't know if the products are real or not, but I wouldn't really bother to be honest. Many large items of course dusty as it seems like very few customers. The owners do not harrass you though, generally they are nowhere to be seen. Seems like some items have come from a garage sale.

A must destination. A good mix of colonial antiques and interesting reasonably priced items. HAVE Fun, make an offer.

I was on a time line, so had to choose just a few places to visit. The Antique street is home to a number of interesting shops, whilst some items are newish, there are some treasures to be found, and I found making an offer was not an issue, I used a cash mix of $US and local currency.

I spent 2 hours in the street, so allow 1 to 2 hours.

Interesting, but not a lot of action from the sellers
Oct 2019
The street is small and some of the stores have great stuff. Most of the sellers are not very enthusiastcs about selling and you have to try hard to buy something. For the coin collectors, be aware that most of the coins being sold are fake copies.

Lots of genuine and fake Asian “antiques” in this short street. Some nice stuff on display especially Art Deco lamps and Asian ceramics.

wonderful collection of brick-a-brack,junk, trash and some interesting antiques. I think you need to spend some serous time there if you want to get something interesting and there is loads to see

Small bric à brac

Tiny street with a dozen of antique shops selling mainly old ceramics.
If found much more war memorabilia in the other market nearby (Dan Sinh Market).
Of course, although it’s small, it was much more interesting than Ben Thranh market.
If you are there, I suggest you do them all together in half a day.

So much more fun than the nearby Ben Thanh Market
Sep 2019
This place is very close to the disaster that is Ben Thanh and I enjoyed it so much more. My only regret is that I couldn't really take anything home because the things I really fell in love with were too large and fragile-- namely, beautiful antique lamps and chandeliers.

For me personally, this market was great. Lots of crowded shops full of interesting antiques that you really have to sort through. Better yet, NO ONE hassles you. Are you tired of people following you around and pestering you to buy? I was. I know they are just trying to make a living, but honestly, it drives me away. This was a nice break. You can look at the goods, and they are certainly available if you want to take something out. But they don't pester you the whole time.

Fascinating array of items.

Whether you're looking for an old coin or a pleasing piece of vintage porcelain then this is the street for you. The shop owners tend to leave you alone while you check out their offerings and there is no sense if being pushed into a regrettable purchase. There are lots of interesting items but finding them involves seeing past the general flea market items. It is a short street which can take anything from 10 minutes to half a day depending on your appetite for finding that great bargain. If it is too quiet for your liking you can always go to the nearby Ben Thanh market where the hawkers will do their very best to sell you a fake tshirt, sneakers or a cheap gold watch.

I found what I were looking for (antique lamp), but it just over my budget. It is easy to find and quiet. I recommended.

If you’re in the area it’s worth a stroll down the street

Nothing really special but it is fun to watch the men play checkers. There’s a lot of old porcelain or maybe porcelain that is not that old, it is not very crowded and I did not see one person buying anything.
