It’s been a hectic week for us in the office, what with our sponsorship project with UNHCR, and a secret collaboration in progress, not to mention the abundance of new stocks in motion. So we took a short break earlier this afternoon to pop by FUYOH Art Bazaar for some much-deserved shopping therapy, and boy did we enjoy ourselves.
To avoid the inevitable crowd of the great art and local supports scene, we arrived at noon and perused the many wondrous stalls available. Unlike the rest of the flea markets in KL nowadays (Bangkok and Korean-garments galore), this was a treasure trove of handmade products and local brands, very reminiscent of Annexe’s Art for Grabs market, but within the convenient stroll of Publika, Solaris Dutamas.
Though there were many stalls to splurge on, I was personally throwing myself on one particular stall that sold many treats for the 80′s child, from Ding Dang, to Tora, to Haw Flakes, to such an amazing assortment of colored gasings, and oh just too many treats that brought me back to childhood to name! It was located just outside the Outdated pop-up store, yet another store that you MUST check out if you’re a fan of vintage finds. They even had chocolates in old cigarette boxes, much to the conflicted delight and despair of this one mom!
So what was our total damage? I don’t know about the rest (we had forgotten about one another as we indulged farther into the market), but I came out with three huge and old vintage children’s books for my daughter (RM5 each), three old-fashioned gliders that we used to play as kids (RM3 each), two Haw Flakes and tons of bubble gum (lost track of cost but about RM3 altogether), a coffee chart poster print (RM40), a handmade notebook by the adorable local brand Mossery, a hand carved and hand painted rattle for my bub (RM5), and tons of kueh Nyonya for the office staff.
There’s still time before it ends, so hurry over and lose yourself in the amazing finds of Fuyoh Art Bazaar.
