This is the world's largest fabric and clothing material market. You can buy the latest fabrics in Korea. They also sell accessories, bedding and hanboks here. Many vendors selling similar products... so shop around and compare the price.

There are a lot of shops that look similar or sell the same products:- - winter jackets (what else when you go in November) - winter fashion (a little mumsy fashion wise) - winter accessories - bags and luggage Prices are good, and bargain-able.

For shopping enthusiasts, Dongdaemun is a must visit.
Enormous shopping centres – stacked with multiple
levels of boutique and independent shops – offer the
latest in Korean fashion, cosmetics, accessories, and
other goods while prices are relatively low. The night
shopping (between late night and early morning) is
particularly well known here, making Dongdaemun a
place where you can literally shop until you drop. If

For souvenir items, I suggest you go to Namdaemun Market instead. Their prices are cheaper and have a lot more to offer.
I am looking for jewelry findings and beads, as well as fabric by the yard suitable for a dust ruffle for a bed. I have read about Doota, Mesa, Dongdaemon and Namdaemon markets. Where is the best store(stores) for my needs? thank you Marcy
