Where in PP to get art & statues CHEAP?

Post by MrJoyce » Sat Dec 01, 2018 5:40 pm

Hey everyone,

Im here a couple of days, ive checked out the night market and jeez stuff is overpriced, buddha statues, oil paintings on linen.

Its not worth what theyre asking and being a barang/just having english means haggling has a more limited effect, and its tiring work.

this is obv. a market for tourists. Where is a good place to buy this stuff at reasonable prices, as im only familiar with a tiny bit of the city? (its all mass produced stuff anyway, the producers are getting a tiny cut and i would buy 5x more if it was 5x cheaper)

:please:

people living off cockroaches and rats, earning 1/2 dollar a day or somethin, sorry m8 the stack of replicates of buddha oilpainted onto unmounted wrinkled canvas doesnt have any artistic value. its fodder, and id just like to pay what you would charge your cousin if he came in to buy a stack of them please im just a foreigner, not a rich foreigner as you would obviusly assume. :stir:

178 is art street.

Russian market probably just as overpriced as the night market.
