Are your Thailand souvenirs genuine hand made works of art or just mass produced gifts.
Truth is, many of these so called antiques are mass produced.However, digging deep into the dusty stock of an old gift shop can unearth a real valuable antique.
This particular item was found tucked well away in an old antique shop in Hua Hin. It stands about 5 inches high and 12 inches long.A good item for interesting conversation.
Personally, I pick up a few unusual items on my travels to decorate my home.I found this piece in the chatuchak weekend market, looks great on a dresser or cabinet.
When my friends visit, they say “oh that’s beautiful, where did you get that from”.I tell them I dug it out of an old junk shop deep in the hills of Chiang Mai. They think it’s a genuine and worth a fortune.I just sit back and smile thinking that I purchased it from a shop in the MBK in Bangkok.
Apart from the jokes, these Thailand souvenirs do look great around the house.
All these gifts can be purchased everywhere in Thailand from super markets to street stalls and shops.Haggle hard.
