Somewhere in Owino: A world of leather
In the depths of Owino market or as it is now called St. Balikuddembe market is a fine stall that over the last couple of years I have spent a fair bit of money.
Last year I bought a box leather jacket black made from real heavy leather it must have originated from the States by the look of the label. It was like nearly all clothes in Owino second hand but in really good nick only a small repair to the top left pocket was needed which can also be done in the market. the jacket after some haggling cost me 40,000, in Uganda quite a bit of money but a jacket like that back in the UK would have cost a lot more than the £12 I paid.
This February before coming home I checked the stall out again just incase. Wanting something different I picked up short brown French made leather zip jacket with very little sign of wear for 25,000. Absolute bargain!!!
