As you already know, I’m a huge fan of flea markets – especially those selling local handmade products and uniquely Indonesian crafts. The vendors at Qlapa are selling exactly the above. *excitezzz*
I couldn’t wait till the weekend and headed down to Lippo Mall on Friday. The stalls are mainly selling home decor, woodcraft, custom made shoes and bags, pretty batik clothing, leather goods, accessories, AND MORE.
Some pictures from the ground:
Given that the flea was held in a mall, Qlapa market is rather small in size. It would have been nice if it was larger scale with more stalls. Then again, the shopping aftermath would have left me even more broke $$$ heh.My buys from Qlapa flea:
I’ve been looking for a good ol’ hand-stitched leather wallet for some time, something I can rough out with whilst travelling. And boyyy was I glad to find a matching pair for Agent D and myself!
The entire wallet is hand sewn, from the exterior to the interior. Don’t you just love the smell of leather?! I do. 🙂
If you have nothing on this weekend, be sure to drop by Qlapa flea market! I’m sure you’ll be able to find a cute handmade gift for someone special or a souvenir for yourself. ❤ ❤ ❤
