Today our lovely Buyer – Sura, shares with us her buying trip to a large wholesale market in Seoul!
Hello from Seoul!
It’s been a long time since my last post.
I have been busy the past few weeks working on our new fashion business, looking for a new job and helping out with a friend’s business as well! It’s all been been so exciting!!!
Last week I went with my friend to a huge wholesale market called DongDaemun, located in Seoul. There were so many stores selling both wholesale and retail. However, the majority were wholesale and only traded late at night.
The market is always filled with people – buyers, retailers, tourists and general customers from all over. I noticed recently that more Chinese buyers have come over to source Korean clothing and products.
As time went on, people were getting busier and full of energy. I totally forgot the time as I walked around the market, and only felt hungry and tired when I saw that it was nearly 4:30am! So we decided to eat street food for a late night snack 🙂
What is your favourite menu for midnight snacks?
If you are Korean or have been to Korea before, you know well what the typical Korean street foods are; Topokki, fishcakes, fries, Sundae – Koreans really enjoy them!!
As the temperature dropped below zero that day, my friend and I decided to have hot and spicy food, Topokki and Fishcakes dipped in spicy soup.
Even after we finished eating, the market was still crowed with people so we continued buying, and only finished up at 6am!
I will be blogging soon about what I bought for the store and hopefully you will love our styles! 🙂
