Ratchada Night market nearly Sukhumvit

Ratchada Night market nearly Sukhumvit side walk shopping.
          Fri-Sat Night Parallel with Ratchadapisek-Ladprao intersection.MRT Ratchadapisek or Ladphrao Vendors at this nighttime (and teen-thronged) flea market flog all sorts of retro and secondhand stuff,from art deco lamps and ghetto blasters to Polaroids and vintage clothing.Somwhat like a country fair,it's open-air and most wares are laid out on the ground, so expect to squat a lot.Besides the used items,lots of handmade products,such as paintings and women's accessories,also squeeze into this small-city sized market; as does a live band,lot of local food and a mini motor show of classic cars and bikes (nope,thoseVW vans and pastel-coloured Vespas aren't for sale unfortunately) so worth the schlep,but bring a torch and your bargaining skills!
