There are so many different themes of weekend market here in Taiwan. Most of them sell vintages clothes and bags. But handmade crafts have been a boom recently. Some of them are professional artisans and some base on their own personal interest and crafting as side business. Here are some of the cute little stuff I collected from the market.
These are wooden pin and earring made by Mu Cong Boy (木蔥男孩). Moai earring was the first piece I bought. I bought the Hand earring afterwards. I call it “Frankie’s Hand”. I like it very much. Some of my artist friends admire it. The earrings are light and with a hint of sense of humor.

I love colorful stuff. These vivid pins come from *People Tutu. At first sight, these pins look like toys I saw in European toy shops. Each of them are like characters from fairy tales, full of imagination. I love it! You have to check this out 🙂
Collecting vintage toys is one of my little hobbies. I found these rare black and brown Q-bi last weekend. Although they are replicas, special and cute still. YAntique is also selling some real vintage toys and dolls, in pretty good conditions.
Handmade hairpin from ChiChi*. She also made embroidery pins and drawings. She loves birds and mushrooms so much that most of the stickers she produced are based on these two elements. I love this hairpin because of the vivid threads and the mini scissors on it!
