10-cent Ear Diggers and Antique Shoes

We wondered around on the second floor and found rather unique little shops amongst the multitude of Indian dress shops. Like Quek Ah Kow store that was manned by the old man in white singlet below. He wares were simple yet they were interesting like the 10-cent ear diggers below.There were two antique shops that looked interesting and if I have time I may go back next Saturday to see what they have.I found these antique shoes amongst bronze figurines and snuff boxes. These shoes were from the time when Chinese women still had bound feet. see the black pair on the right front. That is how small deformed feet can be.
