Seek And You Shall Find: Itaewon's Antique Alley

A few meters down from the main Itaewon intersection opposite the Hamilton Hotel, towards the direction of Han River is a neighborhood of shops selling antique and vintage items that would interest antique shoppers and collectors.

Passing through the shops one morning, I saw a lot of interested shoppers rummaging through small candelabras, vintage plates, porcelain cups and flashy furnitures. 

I wonder where the sellers got these rare items from, but it would have been interesting if there was a story that accompanied each item: the era where they manufactured, and their previous owners.

I am not exactly the type who would buy these items. But if you are one of those homeowners who would decorate their homes, or offices with these antique pieces, the Itaewon antique shops would be the best place for you to seek and find the treasures you would enjoy owning.

From Exit 3 of Itaewon Station, make a u-turn and look for Taco Bell. Head down on that Taco Bell side and walk straight towards the direction of the Han River. A few steps down you would see these shops, and even after you pass the intersection, you can turn right and see a few more.

Happy hunting!
