Serious Shopper Alert!

image

Bali can offer a menagerie of shopping: from one-off designer items to market gear!

image

If you’re seeking bargain priced summer and beach fashions including great leather wallets and bags, dress jewellery and shoes, head to the markets at Seminyak (known as Seminyak Flea Markets).  Here you will find a good selection of market type purchases.

image

Although you may pay a little more than Kuta or Legian, the quality and design is often improved and more varied, and still at discount prices.

image

Don’t forget to bring a half empty suitcase to fit in all your purchases.

Happy shopping! Xx

Seminyak Flea Markets

Address:  Oberoi Road, Seminyak

image

HINT:  It can get rather steamy under the shade cloth market roofing, so call in at La Sicilia, Seminyak located next door for a cool drink after all your fab shopping purchases.

La Sicilia, Seminyak, Bali

Jalan Laksmana (Oberoi) 151, Seminyak

Material Heaven!

JALAN SULAWESI, Denpasar

This is it. Jalan Sulawesi.

Look no further than Jalan Sulawesi and Jalan Gajah Mada in Denpasar for fabrics aplenty!  These two streets are dedicated to fabrics only.

Whether you’re after suiting, dress, curtain or soccer motif fabric these streets of remarkable fabric are a dressmaker’s heaven.  There are big savings to be made here!  For example: buy sufficient lengths  of  linen to suit your large, festive Christmas dining table, then have it hemmed at a local tailor for a quality tablecloth.

There is stuff for EPL fans.

Batik, silks, quilting material, ornate lace….the selections are endless and the prices are low, eg. fabrics that may be $20per metre in Australia, are just $2.50Aus on Jl. Sulawesi and Jl. Gajah Mada.

Go prepared as you will often be followed by persistent women wanting to make a sale.  Take your best negotiating skills with you and have water and hand sanitiser available.

I suggest you go early – before the true heat of the day since the markets are hot and you’ll have to barter.  Determination will pay off though if you’re on the lookout for distinctive fabrics at ridiculous prices.

These market shops open from around 9am until 4.30pm.

There are bargains.

HINT:  Taxi’s are few and far between in this location so either ask your taxi/driver to wait or ask a shop that you’ve purchased from to phone a taxi for you.  They’re often happy to do this when you’re ready to go home.

Happy shopping!

Bali Market Shopping and PRICE Guide

Market shopping 

Bargaining – you either love  it or loathe it!

Either way, consider these tips:

  • keep smiling
  • never say this is your first trip to the island (even if it is)
  • have a clear price you are willing to pay before you start negotiating
  • be mindful that they do this for a living so are likely to be more skillful/persistent than you are
  • go early for best “Morning Price”
  • be prepared to walk away
  • if you think it’s a reasonable price, then do the deal
  • remember that 10,000Rp is equal to approximately $1.00Aus
  • watch the zero’s on your notes as it can be confusing.

Above all, always keep your sense of humour!!
