fascinating bits and pieces
Jan 2019
Looking for some hardware then this is definitely the place to come to. We were on the lookout for a ladder and whilst we found one opposite this market we were truly absorbed by the amazing amount of hardware that this market had. From screws to nails, war items and the like this is a place to get lost in for a coulle of hours.

Mostly tools

We headed there after reading that you can buy some war-related items here. There were some stalls which sold them, hidden at the back, but except for that there were mostly tools and other similar items.

Hubbie returned here 3 times in two days for buying!

What attracted us was the 'War surplus : stuff, but in the end it was the Stainless locks, hinges etc that we got. Our family of five only went here once. It closes at 5pm so dont get caught out like us. I got a great US Army compass, but it was hubbie who loved this most. He went back 3 times, and filled up a back pack of stainless steel supplies for his next DIY projects. There was a lot of kitchen stuff too.

Useful place for us but take care!
Jun 2017
I like here for DIY. There are a lot of things from water masking tape to big drills. However we must be carefully for thief. Because some of my friends lost I phone when they use I phone in this area . About price, if you want to buy big shopping we are better to help from Vietnamese friends or guide. Because they request you such a huge amount for shopping.

Fun place to wander through

It's a fun place to wander through if you're looking for some special souvenirs. I picked up some old photographs.

A Bunnings and an auto wreckers' market with 'war surplus' thrown in the mix
Apr 2016 • Family
This market is a maze of odds and ends, metal parts to many different machines and other quirky/interesting items. Our son spotted this on the web, even our guide hadn't been there before. We wandered through the walkways and browsed many shops. Lots of parts and pieces to inspect. this is clearly a market developed of local need and mainly local customers. We brought a few things and bartered well. worth a look but its not 'one stop shop' or 'caters for tourist' market. They sell what the neighbour uses.

Rocked my vacation!
Oct 2015
Was searching for old items, nothing exquisite. Managed to find Steven's stall and I will be returning the minute I am back in HCMC. The front of the building opens to stalls with car parts, hardware, etc. It also contains knock off military gear and dog tags, etc. I was only interested in rusted trinkets.To find Steven, who sells such gems, enter the front left side of the building and walk straight forward about 50 feet. Turn left at the first real place to turn left. Walk about another 20 feet until you see on the right hand side that there is another small corridor. Turn right and Steven is first stall on the right. It is about 15 feet by 10 feet big with a rusty fan in the ceiling corner to keep you cooled off while you dig through his amazing treasures. I can't verify the age of any items, especially any war trinkets. BUT, if you want old photos, brass pieces, Vietnamese ephemera, etc. you will not be disappointed. Tell Steven the lady from Beijing sent you. He speaks great English and will haggle, but not a ton.

My favorite HCMC hardware store(s)
Feb 2014 • Solo
Ever find yourself needing a small tool, flashlight, army gear, Nuts bolts and anything for repairing things or simply things you might want to buy? look for the overhead sign, and then you think you are walking through a shop to to get to the small shops behind the main shops on Yersin street.
In early 2000 this location had tons of army surplus type items, along with used and new tools and some kitchen appliances. I like this place much better than Binh Tanh Market, but I like hardware stores. This location is loaded with small businesses inside, the entrance and there is a lot of heavier tools and machinery outside. You wo't find trendy fashion clothing here, but will probably find unique items you won't find in normal stores either. Since I've travelled to Vietnam multiple times a year for years, I simply go here when i need a tool or need to repair something, or just looking for something different to take back home. from tape measures to led lights to clothing to tools, If you are near, this place is something to discover, when you really need something out of ordinary grocery store. The surrounding blocks also have many items used to make things. Once you go here, you will have a place to find things you normally would expect to find in a hardware store back home.
