The last few weeks, maybe even months have been quite uneventful. From work, to not feeling my best, I’ve spent a lot of time at home in my bed shamelessly binge watching youtube. Finally, after what seemed like another possibly doomed weekend of staying in. Mae and I talked ourselves into putting on some clothes other then baggy teeshirts and running shorts and headed to an outdoor market called Made By Legacy.
Heading to the market, I had no expectations. I had done no research on it. As that could have bought us time to change our easily wavered minds. The market was on the roof top of one of the weirdest malls I’ve ever been to. Fortune Town mall is just a series of one directional floors leading you to the unknown down every corridor. Once we found our way to the Market we were thoroughly impressed with its first moments and entry was only 120 Baht!
Made By Legacy is described as an American style flea market full of vintage and other quality goods. The vintage scene in Bangkok has its own community. The active members completely embody the vintage lifestyle. From cars, clothes, home decor, music and even dance styles. It was really amazing to see the community all together at the same place. Along with vintage wear there were art, record, antique, home wear and food vendors. A massive collection of quality goods and delicious looking food and drinks.
Mae and I decided to grab ourselves some solo cup cocktails and do some shopping. Which was virtually impossible because every 10 steps a“ long time no see” friend of Mae’s would come up to us to chat. I’m not joking. Every. Ten. Steps. I was so ready to get my shop on, that I snuck away from her to take some photos and find something special to add to my slowly growing closet.
I fell in love with so many pieces at the market, but it was price point was quite high in comparison to the similar markets in Canada. The price range was about $40- $180. I found a handmade tote from Tiger Records (a record store in BKK) for just under $20. Which was awesome because it had everything I was looking for. Now only if I could transport my record player and record collection from Canada here, so I don’t feel so much like a poser.
If you're not into shopping, the market also had 2 stages with local and expat DJ’s and musicians. Playing motown, funk, disco to indie and hiphop. It was nice to take shopping break and chill with a cocktail in hand.
Overall the market was a lot of fun and I'm really happy Mae and I shook off the homebody laziness and went. If you're coming to Bangkok in the next year, I would highly recommend stopping by Made By Legacy. Check out there website or their instagram!
