Shopping in Dongdaemum, Korea.

Dongdaemum Shopping Complex , Korea. A "must visit" to all knitters and you can spend full day here just seeing and admiring at yarns!!

The shopping complex is next to exit 8/9 of subway stop at Dongdaemun (not Dongdaemun stadium)
on line 4. When you get out from exit 8, you will see the shopping complex. Walk towards "KEB VIP center" you'll find stairs leading to basement.

The yarn stores are at the basement of this shopping center.
When you reach the basement, you'll see these...

Silbaram at C-563 is the store that I usually visit.....
Here you are, the pretty store owner and her husband was sitting in front of the store. They are both very friendly and will give further discount if you buy more. Some common brands you can find from this store are, Noro, Zaol, Helena etc. They also sell "Addi" circular and bamboo circular needles here and they are very cheap too!! Overall, I had a great time shopping in Dongdaemum!!
