Inside Chatuchak: Backyard Jewelry
Since opening eight years ago, Backyard Jewelry has become one of the hottest places to get intricate jewellery in Chatuchak Market. But why is it so popular?
What is Backyard Jewelry?
Backyard is a jewellery shop that sells small pieces such as earrings, rings and necklaces for women. The shop is simple but very spacious which coincides well with the jewellery. Many of the items are inspired by woodland animals such as white rabbits, deer and foxes which give the store a nostalgic fairy-tale theme. The shop is fairly small but definitely worth browsing if you are looking for a one of a kind.
How expensive are the items?
This is where Backyard Jewelry really comes into its own. All the jewellery in the shop is very reasonably priced as you can get items for as little as 250 Baht. What a bargain! Some of the more expensive items range from 1500-2000 Baht which for a designer piece is cheap.
Where can I find Backyard Jewelry?
The designer Nicha “Nan” Iamsakulpanich, has expanded her shop gradually over time in which she now has a shop in Terminal 21 as well as Chatuchak Market. The Terminal 21 shop has a little more to offer with a variety of clothing available as well as jewellery. Some of the clothing can be found inside Chatuchak but styles can be limited.
The addresses for both stores are:
Chatuchak Market: 225, Soi 2, Section 4 inside Chatuchak Market
Terminal 21: 1112, 1st floor (Tokyo), Sukhumvit 19, Sukhumvit Road, Bangkok 10110. BTS Station: Asoke, MRT Station: Sukhumvit.
