If you are in love with old stuff from Laos, you have to follow on facebook the page " Laos Thai Galerie Collectibles". I have no clue if the owner has virtual gallery or a physical one - there are so many in River City Mall though. On the FB page, we come across wonderful ancient images and documents but I also see truly remarkable reproductions of medals and insignia. The owner is certainly also someone who respects our culture, our history, s/he dwells into archives to find sound bites from before.
Makes me want to cry and go back in time by 100 years. Can't keep thinking of my grandfather Bong and the likes, "les grands hommes de ce temps". I recall our visits to Chatuchak market with our kids, there is a section with old papers and in particular one vendor is specialized in "le journal illustré". We bought a few copies. If we are back in Bangkok, sure will spend every week end there !
