Window Shopping At Stanley Market

Every town's market has something interesting to offer, and that's where I go when I'm in a new place. Furthermore, a bustling town is not the same as a bustling city. You will not feel the chaos, but rather amused by the idyllic rural lifestyle and distinctive products that set it apart from other markets.

Here's another #MarketFriday blog and I know @dswigle will like the place.

On one Sunday, I went to Stanley for the first time. It's a well-known place in Hong Kong that attracts a large number of tourists and travelers, both local and foreign. The weather was perfect for a stroll, and there were many visitors in town, including those taking photos behind me.

When I first arrived in town, the market was the first thing I noticed. This street appears to be peaceful, but as I entered the inner part, there were more people, tourists, buyers, and window shoppers.

These were just some of the stalls on the street I have taken photos. There were paintings, postcards, souvenir products, different garments, like summer dresses, and accessories, mostly for ladies. And given that there are beaches in this town, swimming garments are being sold here as well.

I continued straight and was astounded by the sheer number of stores along the covered street. This outdoor market is more of a collection of shops and stalls. And, just like in traditional markets, some products can be bargained for at reasonable prices.

There's a wide variety of Chinese and Western souvenirs, accessories, housewares, garments, toys, and even different crafts and paintings.

The shop below is selling different lacquerware perfect as gift items, and home decorations. Products look elegant but reasonably priced.

Not only summer dresses for ladies are being sold here, but there are also shops selling casual to formal dresses for ladies, including accessories, bags, and other apparel.

Meanwhile, this shop is selling authentic and high-quality leather bags, wallets, and accessories for both men and women,

On the other side is this shop selling ladies' garments, and beautiful hand-crafted native bags and accessories.

There's also an outlet shop selling different clothes of good quality at affordable prices, for all genders, young and old.

Another shop selling fashioned bags and clothes, mostly for men.

The Giftu Concept shop, from the name itself, is selling gift items, toys, and others, specially made for kids. The items can be for adults too.

This shop is selling kitchenware, vases, and home decorations. There are porcelain mugs, plates, vases, wine glasses, vases, figurines, utensils, and others. Even masks are sold here.

This shop selling toys and gift items seems excited for Halloween. You can tell by looking at Halloween items displayed outside the shop. There are costumes too perfect for the anticipated event in November.

IMG_20221020_102801.jpg

For those looking for Chinese-inspired souvenirs, home decor, and gift items, this shop is perfect for them. There are frames, vases, lamps, figurines, lanterns, boxes, and even Chinese lucky charms.

IMG_20221020_110606.jpg

And different cards and paintings that can be displayed at home.

IMG_20221002_125822.jpg

At the far end of the market are shops selling electrical items, like gadgets, speakers, microphones, and phone accessories, as well as toys, beach bags, and other gift items.

IMG_20221002_125903.jpg

Above all the shops in this market, I am most fond of the art galleries. This market has many art shops, and some paintings are even painted right in the shops. Customers can also specify the style of customized paintings they desire. But, of course, the cost is different.

IMG_20221020_111656.jpg
IMG_20221020_111944.jpg

In fact, at the end of this market is an art-sharing school where anyone, including kids, can attend art workshops with corresponding fees. There's a workshop for paint jamming, oasis, epoxy resin, jesmonite art or home decor making, and journal binding.

After exploring the market, visitors can make their way to the waterfront to see more tourist attractions.

IMG_20221002_130200.jpg

The market says to open from 10 in the morning until around 7 in the evening. Since this town is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Hong Kong, the market can be crowded, especially during public holidays. It was such a nice window shopping and sightseeing, and a new experience in a new town. Another place on my bucket list has been visited 😊.

You can check out Murray House which is one of the attractions in this town.

It looks like a Filipino market, but the difference is it's not crowded and they are cleanliness. Lol! I love those local paintings, gosh. How I wish there are painting selling in the local market with that kind of quality. I like the video, too. Have some !PIZZA

Thanks. It was not too crowded when I visited the place.. But on some occasions it is. The most crowded part is the waterfront.. I'll share the whole blog of this town one of these days.

I love it when you wear your hair loose and not hidden in a hat!
A market like that would be all too easy to spend a blooming fortune without realising it.
Are you a haggler? We don't really do that Janey Jane Jane.

Haha. You saw it. It was forbidden to take photos in other stores there, especially the art galleries.
But I reasoned, "sorry, I'm taking videos for my vlog." 😂😂😂

I am liking this place already and I wish I could just find myself there with some sort of invisible power 😊😊
I can see unique and quality wares there and I love the stuffs in the video I watched. One would be tempted to get more than what he or she has bargained or budgeted for if care isn't taken. Lol

This a lovely market one could get attractive stuff and be happy.

I also like window shopping, specially targeting and sighting prospects the next time I already have the money 😅 Yung tipong, "Oi, babalikan kita" haha.

Ang ganda ng art pieces jan ah and na intrigue ako sa art sharing school, ang gandang concept. Nice market, thanks for taking us on a tour @jane1289
Keep safe and looking forward to your next adventure!

It is such awesome beauty, seeing this place makes me seek the power of teleportation 😂😂. I love it when one can get almost everything they need in a place instead of moving to another area to have them gotten.

They said 10 to 7....will it be a crime if I decided to stay there all day long?😂😂

#MarketFriday never had it so good! Hong Kong has been a mecca for shopping since I was a little kid. The shopping never gets old there, does it? How can it? Just look at it all!! That one place is bigger than some towns!!! Right?

I find it amazing that so many things are carried there and the volume that moves through is amazing. I have to ask: What did you buy or was this only a look trip?

What do you think they have there that is the best buy? If you could buy anything they had, what would that be? I hope you bring us back here again sometime! That was fun! Thank you for participating in #MarketFriday! I appreciate the time and effort that goes into putting a post together for the challenge. It is with great pleasure that I read through and realize how much we have all tried to include things in our world that may be unique to the area. I have learned so much about the different cultures of the world, especially the small things that go unnoticed except by those looking for them. Life is interesting, wherever you are, whatever you are doing. I hope the week has found you healthy and happy, as we all look to prosper in our way of life.

Fridays are all about the #MarketFriday Challenge! Looking to take part in it? Here is how:


Rules of the Road to Join #MarketFriday!

  3. Post the pictures. Of course, you should tell a little bit about the ones you post, it is too difficult to guess on some
