I'm Toon (in my mid 30's) from Thailand. Pleased to meet you all.
Hello and glad to have you here.
Hello Toon! Welcome
Hi and welcome!
Are there shops in Thailand where you can walk in and try on (and buy) vintage clothes? Or is access completely online/mail order?
Hi and welcome!
First of all i have to apologise if i make any mistakes with my writing and thanks again to let me join this board.
Back to the question...
There are quite a few proper vintage clothing shops in Siam square and Chatuchak weekend market both shopping places are located in Bangkok.
I prefer Chatuchak weekend market as it's such a great big place and alot more interested stuff to look at. You can easily spend almost 2 days to walk around it! Talking about it, i haven't been there for ages if i happen to go there sometimes in the near future i will take some pictures of both places and post them on here if you wish.
YES, please post pictures!!!
yes, please post pictures, we'd love it!
Do you sell vintage or a collector?

I started to collect vintage clothes and some accessories like belts, bags and shoes since i was in my teen. They were cheap and easy to find in any flea markets in Bangkok. But then go back to 7 years ago after i had a big row with my Thai ex-boyfriend i left the house and all my belonging behind. I even had a storage for my clothes, you could say walk-in wardrobe but that sounds too posh to me! Anyway on my return i found that all my clothes, shoes and whatever in my storage have been cut by a very sharp knife! I was so shocked and disappointed.
Since that happen i had to start from zero to collect them again. Now i live in 1 bedroom flat with limited storage which mean i can't collect as much as i want.
I remember my very first dress that sold on ebay was an emerald green corset pencil dress, i believe it was a designer dress i could tell by its quality and the design. So, yes, i also sell vintage and i know that i'm not a qualified seller as my knowledge of vintage is very little compare to all of you:adore:.
Thank you Buddha, glad that i found this forum!
Oh my goodness - I can not believe the knife slashing story. How awful for you. The weekend markets sound wonderful. We would all love to see photos.
I'm also a newbie from the UK. Pleased to meet you!
Sorry to hear about the knife attack on your clothes! Thank goodness he's now an ex!
I'm sure you'll find lots of new friends here anyway
Hello there! Nice to hear from someone a bit closer to Melbourne (where I live!) Everyone seems to be from the US or UK - I'm also a new member - I have been hoping to find an Australian vintage clothing society for years - it seems like it will never be a reality.
Chatuchak market is so much fun - I've been there a few times - but I must say I never found any good vintage stuff - I guess you have to know where to look!!
Greetings from a fellow vintage lover from Canada!!
The knife wielding ex sounds like something out of a bad movie!! Don't mess with a girl's clothing!! :angry22:Glad that you are able to start again with a better life and more vintage goodies!!
