Weekend Market - Clothes and Shoes

There are a great many number of places that can sell you clothes whilst you wander around the Weekend Market and there is an even great amount of places which you can buy shoes!
Muay Thai Boxing shorts - a common request
Not being a 'clothes person' I am not that keen on taking photographs of the clothes that are for sale. But I do notice a number of things -

note the Dr Beats Headphones
1) There is not a wide range of clothes in terms of their sizes
2) There is not a lot of choice of the labelled clothes - here Patong is the winner.
3) Many of the clothes are for the Thai people and may not be appealing to the Foreign Visitor.
4) WOW - some of the clothes, particularly dresses are extremely cheap!

There are a great deal of shoes for sale - more than I could imagine and they are extremely cheap. But this means that the quality is not the best - the shoes here will probably last as long as your holiday. Do not be surprised that when you keep them for a year and you use then again the glue has dried out and they fall apart almost immediately.

The number of different items for sale are enormous and I have blogged about this previously but on reflection I think that it may be easier to look at the types of thing for sale here. I have started a list.
