Upon entering, you’re immersed in an Aztec pattern that takes over the market area with wide bands of alternating red, yellow and blue shapes everywhere. Weave in and out of shops that are selling everything from shoes to jewelry and more.
The jewelry selection, found on floor M of the Online Market, is one you must explore. Some notable jewelry shops include Plant Jewelry and Rock Me Jewelry. Plant Jewelry’s tiny charm bracelets and colorful rings are so adorable that you will have trouble picking out just one. Rock Me Jewelry was established in 2013, with stone acting as the centerpiece of all the designs — and, pieces are handmade right here in Bangkok.
Shopkeepers make browsing their selections easy — clothing is separated and put on racks according to their price tags. Entire racks will be priced at a single number, with almost everything under ฿500 (about $15); simply just find a rack with the price tag you are willing to spend and explore the seemingly endless possibilities.
Five different bands will be taking the stage throughout the duration of the market. Find the performers on floor G, along with a wide selection of stylish handbags and more shoes than you will ever know what to do with. Be sure to check out Varabrand’s leather handbags — they were definitely a favorite find at the market.
