Vietnam's insider take:

Several Old Quarter stores have cashed in on the newfound appreciation of Vietnam War–era propaganda posters and their interplay of light graphics and hectoring messages ("Denounce the American Invaders" seems a recurring leitmotif). This long, narrow shop stocks more than 200 handpainted originals ($80–$100 apiece), like the image of gun-toting Vietnamese women ("The Southern Female Guerrillas Are Truly Full of Guts"), and nearly as many smaller copies ($10). Nearby Dogma is slicker—you can also get T-shirts and postcards—but the posters are all reproductions.

Open daily 8 am to 9 pm.
