145/365 June 2010: Shopping in Hanoi’s Old Quarter


Hanoi is a shopper’s paradise.  This shop sold embroidered pictures.



In additional to these whimsical baskets, this shop sold any touristy thing you could think of from t-shirts to cobra’s in bottles.



One unique item for sale in Hanoi is water puppets. They are painted and lacquered.  These many jointed puppets are lovely and can be displayed our used as toys.
