When they closed down the International Market place, many of the venders moved to the alley. It is so filled with merchants that it has very narrow pathways between all the stalls, it always feels quite bustling and exotic. I love going because it makes me feel as if I've been transported to a small marketplace in the south pacific or perhaps in China or Vietnam.
Occasionally, you run across someone who offers something different such as the man who makes tiki's but most sell either clothing or jewelry or little surfboards or other trinkets. The nice thing is that pricing is rather standardized among all the merchants. It reminds me of a farmer's market where the prices are pretty consistent.
Me? I know what I'm going to get before I go. Tonight, I went over to buy some sarongs but I might go back in a day or two to get some of those huge beach towels to take home with me. They are so big, I can snuggle up in them and just enjoy them.....LOL
Thank you for joining me in my little trip down Duke's Alleyway.
