Those looking for somewhere to jalan jalan can check out a nondescript flea market in the north of Singapore.
It is located at Woodlands Industrial Park, and operates on weekends and public holidays only.
A signboard at the entrance to the flea market, scribbled in black and red marker, indicates that some of the original Sungei Road Market vendors currently sell their wares at Market Gaia Guni.
According to Nurul, most of the vendors at the flea market comprise the elderly.
Speaking to some of them, Nurul wrote that they shared that their rental fees were at about S$200 per month, for not-very-much of stall space.
"I then thought to myself..how do they even earn just by selling S$2-S$30 items whilst having to pay S$200 every month...at a place with no crowd?
Different items every day
Most of the items are secondhand, but the odd "brand new" item can also be picked up.
Items include a paraphernalia of home appliances, bags, makeup, and even musical instruments.
According to Nurul, all the items are priced very affordably, and range from S$2 to S$30. Only cash is accepted.
She added that the beauty of the flea market is that "different items" are sold every day, making it fun for visitors to explore the place for themselves.
She also urged members of the public who intend to head down to "be nice" to vendors, and refrain from haggling for discounts.
She wrote: "They're already selling them so cheap....let's just show them our love and support, shall we? P.S. Bring along a power bank in case you need to try out their items there. Power supply is extremely limited there. "
