If you will be in Seoul anytime from March to November and you are a fan of handmade and unique crafts, don't forget to visit these unique flea markets open only on Saturday and Sunday. These markets don't sell second hand items, but handcrafted accessories, clothes, caps, paintings, photographs and many other more. Most of the vendors are students of the nearby Hongik University. Saturday is the day for "Free Market" while "Hope Market" is on every Sunday. Both are open from 1PM to 6PM at the same location. (source 1, source 2)
