Hwanghok-dong flea market. I was walking down a riverside street that was lined with shops selling pipes and sink fittings, when I saw an unusual mural on the side of a building. Then I spotted a dark stairwell that could have been the portal to a furry love den for all I knew (which would have led to an entirely different blog post).
Treasure Chest. It was like going into the Tardis and losing your sense of space and time. Hands down, this unlikely space at the bottom of a dark stairwell is the best western antique shop I've seen in Asia.
|Sometimes I stopped and wondered where they got so many cool things!|
|Man cave heaven|
|I wonder who signed that ball...|
|If you find yourself in Seoul and have a heart of vintage, or if you just enjoy a good look at stuff from decades past, the Treasure Chest is well worth a look.|
