Memorabilia No. XX5: MBL Flea III

It was with a heritage pride that we installed the third flea market of Made By Legacy. The event took place on 21-22 December at the southern edge of China Town behind the historic Hua Lamphong station in Samosorn Rod-Fai. The market’s courtyard was surrounded by scenic building that was constructed over 100 years ago during the same time as the neoclassic train station in between 1910 – 1916. The surrounding of MBL market brought all guests to era of King Rama 5, where traditional Thai culture is coincides with classic western architectures. The construct this venue could remind you of Rose Bowl Flea Market in Los Angeles or Old Spitalfields Market in London.

Our effort to secure this location symbolizes the MBL’s philosophy to revisit cultures of our ancestors and cherish the beautiful details and crafts that no longer exist in modern days.
