Last week on my #wednesdaywalk around Bangkok i was just about to be showered down by this huge monsoon black cloud blanketing the whole of Bangkok's sky luckily i found myself near this massive shopping mall called the Asiatique Riverfront Mall.

Happy Market Friday! Who knew that you are post would still be up, unanswered? And it's so long and all alone! That in itself is worth the triple tips.

This was such an incredible Market I think I read the post over probably five or six times because each time I want to start writing about it I would read it all over again and then I wouldn't have time to do it so I'd put it back up in the holding pattern. Oh my God I cannot believe I did that, but then again yes I can. Here I am the night before Market Friday perusing your post again! I am so sorry and I'm laughing when I say this because I just can't believe it! At any rate, I am looking the very first pictures and I was trying to figure out what they were because they were obviously boards that were painted with figures and I'm trying to decide if they were just wall hangings or what but I think that they probably are. By the time you make it to the second picture is really obvious how huge this place is and then of course you go on to explain how the wood is painted with the Buddhist figures. So of course I kept saying I know he's going to answer this somewhere. Lol I knew you would. It is a real event to go to a place like this especially when I see that Monsoon coming right for me. They just have everything there to include little kids clothing and big kids clothing and all the different stalls that they have! My eyeballs are just popping and I'm not even one-tenth done with what I have to say I mean how many pictures did you take? You're as bad as I am! The whites are actually quite nice and I can see a few of them that I would not mind having. Those floral inspired Aromas for different rooms are kind of nice as long as they are not overpowering. Here I am wondering what my bathroom would smell like it with coconut. LOL that's quite a big store there with all of those different sense mingling with each other. And yes please because who doesn't want some oil for massaging. I'll take one of those every day of the week I really like the different displays they have in these places and the one with the bicycle well come of course I know that they use those locally but it's still very cool to me because I'm not used to seeing them on a regular basis. I do like that little stand that they have for the bottle openers and I am with you on the wooden items and the trees. I like when they recycle the wood and make it into something usable.

There certainly were enough handbags! There were so many then I stopped Counting after about 200. But then you got into my favorite place and that was in the jewelry section. Because what girl doesn't love a little jewelry? And I had to laugh at your fries there because you saw those little painted elephants having a race around the table. K I pretty much lost it right there. And now I was glad to see some alligator handbags although Peter probably wants to string me up for loving leather and cowhide. The way they display everything is of course unique and different to me because of the different furniture and Genie lamps and all the hand-painted teapot sets. It's much different then what I have and I love seeing all the stuff from the Himalayas, the Tibetan and Nepalese artwork or items that are very artistic looking. Because India is so close to you or at least closer than it is to us you can take advantage of the beautiful silk but they have. And just so you know yes I'm jealous. Those feather tubes are called dream catchers. I actually have one.

I have a fondness for different silverware's and I actually have special ones for Thanksgiving and special ones for Christmas but these are amazing that they have so many different kinds that you can buy and I'm just flabbergasted. Silver has going out of Vogue here in the states and so not many things cell with silver because they have taken two other elements such as Crystal to do a lot of serving, but how about that fork and spoon! I love that you brought us to a little cookery place. I cannot thank you enough for bringing us here to this absolutely amazing place. I didn't think you took what it off pictures because it looks bigger than that and so I challenge you to take more for next week! LOL you know I'm kidding you! I have to read and respond to each and every one of them so if you do I'd probably will come over there and beat you senseless. I did say kill but took that out because it will be here on the blockchain till the end of time. So I want to thank you endlessly for the work that you put into making a post for Market Friday and just know that I appreciate it so much even though I usually save you until last because I want to make sure I absorbed the entire thing and can spit out some good stuff about it. In saying this I am so sorry that I had you up there hand forgot to take care of business. Please stand with this does not mean that I didn't absolutely love it because you know I did but it didn't happen and so I do apologize. I hope you have a most wonderful day as you head into the weekend and as you know I adore all of your posts.

#MarketFriday loves you!!

Upped and steemed last week!!
