bargain shopping in seoul

Flea markets in Seoul? Really??????

Platoon Kunsthalle Night Flea Market is where it's at...

The Bar that turns into a shopping meca the 1st Saturday of every month!

"The Platoon Kunsthalle concept, an aesthetic compound that has its flagship in Germany, is a place of artistic experimentation and subcultural socializing. Platoon Kunsthalle hosts art for patrons who are interested in creating and displaying their work, from urban art and contemporary photography to funky music and modish dance. It is an ideal place for people to find an outlet for artistic expression." (Courtesy of 10 magazine).

My friends and I had tons of fun stopping at this flea mkt-although I didn't end up getting anything...but eating German sausages, listening to live Dj's, and checking out the edgy fashionista's making their statement- a nice way to spend a Saturday evening.

seoul fashion week

All things fashion-from designers to fashionista's, came out to celebrate Seoul Fashion Week this past weekend!  The major street fair was in Garosugil, Sinsa-dong (my neighborhood) could find great deals on clothes, shoes, houseware, handbags, gadgets, and random things you will probably never use!

I was just happy to find 2 sweaters (15,000 won each, about $15). You just can't beat these prices!!!

It was nice to just walk around to see the latest trends this fall, and listen to some amazing live music!
