    Crocodile skin wallets and belts.

    I think I gave someone good advice not to buy croc skin wallets and belts in Pattaya.

    Even if they were not fake, the genuine shops,IMO, will have a Pattaya mark up that have gullable farang written all over it.

    But then I realised that unless I provided/helped him with an alternative, the advice wouldn't be that great.

    This guy is looking to buy some gifts, he said about 10 items. He will be in Thailand for two months and will travel a fair bit. I'm almost sure that Chiang Mai is the place to go, but that still leaves a hell of a small needle in the haystack.

    Can anyone put him in the right direction, minus the middleman.

    Thanks in advance.

    I swear, I despair at this place at times.

    Okay, here goes. CAN ANYONE RECOMMEND A PLACE TO BUY REAL(NOT FAKE) CROCODILE WALLETS AND BELTS, AT REASONABLE PRICES?

    Possiby if you could also tell me what a reasonable price is, because I don't know.

    It was my understanding that Chaing Mai was the place. This for a friend who is in Thailand for a holiday, as he is with his family(indeed even if not) he would have no wish to go to Bangkok or Pattaya, but will go if that is the best place.

    Go online and see how much they're selling for. Croc's are raised here so no problem; the wallets will be from farmed crocks. Then bargain and see how much they'll sell for; especially if more than one. There are farms all over the country; BKK, Ratchaburi, Nakhon Phatom, etc.

    On Sukumvit, near the corner of soi 3 and 4 there are places. Real shops not on the street.

    Re: Crocodile skin wallets and belts.

    I tried to get something specific online, but not joy.

    As I said, avoiding Bangkok and Pattaya should reduce his costs. I know places in both, but I also believe them to be expensive, as in, Farang customer/Thai seller.

    I have a fading memory of a guy buying a wallet in Chiang Mai for about 1500 cheaper than the shop would sell in Pattaya, I think it was around 1200 against 2700. So I was hoping to trigger some knowedge of Chiang Mai before he visiys there.

    Thanks

    Re: Crocodile skin wallets and belts.

    they are not made in chaing mai, thus there is shipping or transportation involved. The shops I am talking about export these products. I was having cowboy boots, and womens wallets made out of croc and ostrich over 20 years ago. Made good change for about a year.
