The Itaewon Antique Furniture Street was firstly formed in the 1960s when North American soliders stationed in Yongsan base sold their old furniture before returning back to the States. That’s also why most stores at the Antique Furniture Street have collections of particular Western style items of the time, which is quite rare to be seen in Korea.
Vintage, and European style furniture
And now the area has grown even larger, with shops of not only furniture, but also tableware, decoration textile, old appliances, clothes, clocks, and all other interior items from all over the world. The Antique Furniture Street is not just a common marketplace anymore, but becoming one of the popular sightseeing spots of Seoul.
Old Papers and Maps
And basically anything!!

What’s the concept of this? I just didn’t get it… Cool…
The street is best for sightseeing not only because those stylish items, the stores themselves are expressing something different from others as well. A small street, but with a whole new world inside~
If you don’t really have any plans for the weekend, why not come take a little walk along this not very long street~ I believe there must be much more to see especially during the festival period! And maybe some nice stuffs are right there waiting for you to take them home ^^
