    Jim Thompson Sale at BITEC December 7-8-9, 2012

    Jim Thompson SaleThe semi-annual big blowout warehouse Jim Thompson Sale is on! There are thai silk products, cotton fabrics and accessories, clothes, purses, makeup cases, Christmas cards, hats, tote bags, and toys at Hall 106 BITEC 10:00 – 17:00. Cotton fabric is 250 baht per meter, and silk goes for 310 baht per meter. I bought polo shirts for 850 baht marked down from 1600 baht. Clothing is in U.S. sizes and nice cotton.

    There are some items made only for the BITEC sale. There are two sales per year, in June and December. Items are discounted over 50% from retail. BTS sky train station –  Bang Na, exit 1 a short walk to BITEC. You’ll see a large sign. Inside BITEC grounds, catch a shuttle to the entrance.

    There is a coffee shop at the sale so you can have a snack. Upon entering the hall, staff give you a large plastic bag to shop with, and they cover your purse with a plastic bag and tie it. Once inside, fill your bag with items. It’s a madhouse!

    There are tee shirts, silk shirts, purses and bags, bean bag chairs, placemats and table cloths, duvet bed covers, etc. After shopping a while, you can go sit in the middle, which is a roped off area. Here people sit on the floor and spill out the contents of their bags. They sort and reconsider, and rest and wait for other members of their party. Finally, head to the checkout. After paying by cash or credit card, take your receipt out to the lobby to the counter for a free gift if you spent over 6,000 baht. In the lobby there are fruits and veggies, flowers and gift food items. Then at the counter at the front right, get free gift bags and boxes. Just show your receipt. Have fun!

    Upstairs at Pahurat: denim, velour, felt and more 

    Pahurat is the Indian fabric market near Sampeng Lane in Bangkok. You have to find the escalator and that’s how you know it’s the upstairs Pahurat market. The shops sell denim, corduroy, velour, canvas, cotton, and gauze. Once in a while we find novelty cottons or other great fabric for quilting. Adela recommends exploring the ground floor of Pahurat for fashionable dresses. They have some very nice evening dresses in shops on the ground floor of Pahurat.

      I read your posts regularly now – such a colourful, fascinating place you live. I would never have any spare cash if I had access to all that wonderful fabric.
