finds: new taichung food and art places | part three: vintage shopping

Here’s some pics of the little vintage shop, nestled amongst the artist studios in the old market art area by Taichung’s art museum.

I bundled up a great plastic blue 80s handbag, an old Taiwanese movie poster and a couple of old paper advertisements. There’s more than a ton of other things I want.

Address: I’m not going to tell you. Part of the fun of this place is trying to hunt it down. I will say, however, that it’s somewhere near the corner of the art museum parkway (beside the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts) and Wuquan Street. Bring a fan with you as the whole place is unbelievably hot in summer.

    I am so envious! I hear the vintage shopping is amazing in Taichung… that’s where a lot of Taipei vintage/antique dealers find their stuff.

      Actually. This is the first real vintage shop I’ve found. There is pretty cool antique store in Art Street (up by Tunghai University) and there are, of course, the flea markets. But this shop is particularly cool. I must visit Taipei to check out some of the vintage stores there. Can you let me know some good ones? K x
