Fabric Shopping at Balogun Market

This afternoon, Kay, Anne, Toyin, Dupe and I went fabric shopping at Balogun Market on Lagos Island.  Below are some photos from the fabric shop where we bought Nigerian wax fabric and some pics of my purchases, fabric from West Africa.

In this market area just about everything is for sale - food, supplies, fabric, shoes, jewelry and tons more!  Nigerians love loud music!  Sorry for the blurry video.  I rotated it using software I downloaded but the quality is poor.  I thought poor quality was better than viewing it sideways!

My Purchases
Fabric for clothes - I like the border on the bottom as it can be used to accent the outftit.
Fabric for napkins!  Really!  Holiday napkins, everyday napkins or a blouse, outside patio napkins (L to R)

I posted in 2009 on visits to the local Lekki and Balogun markets.

Wonderful tissues... I wonder if this is the same market I visited with my expat friends in 2006.
So you're back in US now...

This is just the place to go shopping after a flight to Lagos. The Balogun market is a place you will almost find everything and all cheap.
