Well I'll call these Antiques in a loose way! They appear to be Antiques but I'm pretty positive that they are not antiques as everything on the mat was either US$1 or US$2 right away without me even having to bargain! I had seen several of these guys around Yangon and wasn't interested in the stuff until my last evening as I didn't want to have to carry all that extra weight. I love the little bells as I hang them on my porch at home. All of the bells that ended up with were supposed to be 30 -80 years old as told to me by the guy that had them. I just chuckled to him each time that he told me that. As I didn't care whether or not they were old I just liked them the price seemed ok to me! I had decided that I was going to spend US$50 on them total and was going to get as much stuff as I could. When I had hit the US$35 range I asked what the total was and he knocked it down to US$30 off the price that I had already argreed to. Then I kept adding stuff on until I hit the US$50 mark. Doing the payment seemed to be the tricky part!! He didn't want me showing the money in public so I had to keep the money in my hand and sort of slide it over to him.
After the transaction was done and I was walking away I was approached by another guy that said I was just ripped off! Well I had a whole bunch of bells that would have cost me $3-$8 a piece back home plus misc other stuff that I could giveaway to friends so I was happy with my purchase. I think the other guy was just trying to get me to buy more stuff!! But I had enough.
