The private street "Night" Market

At around lunch time I went and visited the private street porcelain market. The prices are very low when purchasing directly on the market. Any shipping would need to be organized by yourself. All are second assortment or less. Unfortunately, bowls of eggshell porcelain are so delicate that half breaks however careful you are. They cannot even carry their own weight if shaken .
