If you have any fabric design in mind and can't seem to find it - it is here. Many shops to go into and browse. The cost is not inexpensive but the variety of options is worth the extra cost.

You can get stunning purchases of known brand and off-brand clothing, fabric, shoes, scarves, etc in this area. Be prepared to walk and to bargain.

Went with my cousin to shop around. Always cheap deals. Don't expect anything fancy. Just like a big outdoor flea market.

An old part of downtown, full of old office buildings and warehouses, many of which have been and are being turned into apartments. Some good architecture. Place to shop for bargains.
