A short walk from the Democracy Monument in Bangkok, I came upon this dazzling array of shoes for sale, all haphazardly thrown across a simple plastic mat. Barefoot girls dashed about the tiny space like little bumping cars trying to grab a pair before someone else did. The shop-keeper’s only role seemed to be to ensure noone walked off with his shoes and of course to collect the fixed price of 120 Thai bhat (less than US$ 4!). For someone like me who detests bargaining, this was perfect.
