Visited Silk Market mid-July 2009. The less interested you seem the better the bargain. Always get vendors price 1st start maximum of 1/4 of that. Remember the same stuff is in the next stall and you will have better idea of price. Watches...see where they get the watch from Front case (very cheap) a closed case (a little better), pull from watch case in back (better still) have to run to the back (might have fallen off a truck). Custom made clothing best deal...US law says you can bring back 1 counterfeit of each type of goods.
