“Haggle, haggle, haggle”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2012

This street is famous for antique and art lovers. You may find various antique stuffs here as well as second hand trunks and old vinyl records. I've bought an old fashioned local brass tray, a very heavy yet beautiful silver hand mirror with carvings, and many other small yet still useful items. The trick to shop here is to haggle, but I don't think haggling would apply to foreign tourists. And spare an extra time to check the goods in each shop meticulously, you might find something unique. Have been here many times, and on a good day I might find something interesting at the right price, other times I went home empty handed.

“Interesting Place for Antiques and Art Shopping”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2012

Bought 3 statues on this street. Lots of stuff all tastes. To bargain is a must, very funny they don't push you to buy, but they will feel right away when you like something.
