Seoul Flea Market

A few weeks ago, I went to Seoul Flea Market to find weird, old Korean stuff to hang on my walls. I suffered a case of what my friend Tina calls IKEA Syndrome — in which one spend hours browsing and collecting, only to leave everything mere inches from the check-out due to overstimulation — and left with nothing but some photos in my camera.

I am totally ok with that.

    this place sounds amazing. i definitely suffer from ikea syndrome too. i’m so glad to finally have a proper diagnosis.

    at least you got these effing incredible photos though.

  3. I like these a lot. I have recently discovered that I am able to suppress my urge to collect everything in sight by photographing everything in sight that I might want to collect, and then collecting those photographs. Therefore, I should go to Korea to collect myself.

  4. these are great. sigh.
