If you’re willing to fight the crowds at this flea market in a shed, you may find some interesting Samoan handicrafts or mats, and you can even watch works-in-progress.

In a shed, all the stalls sell exactly the same wares, jewellery and clothes. How do they ever all survive??? It is cramped, hot and I would suggest if you want to buy kitch go early or late in the day to avoid the heat.

A Market is a market no matter where you go. Full of the usual vibe and goodies. Still a good place to purchase those souvenirs. One thing is the fabrics used are of good quality. Prices are fair.
