Memory Lane Flea Market
Every Sunday Jalan Horley and surrounding streets and alleys in Ipoh, Malaysia are transformed into an open-air flea market, called Memory Lane, selling antiques, new and second-hand goods, personal goods, collectables and everything imaginable. Many food and drink stalls also operate in the area to feed the hungry and thirsty visitors and traders. The flea market attracts many locals and tourists every week seeking out a bargain, a hard to find item, an antique or just a sentimental and everyday item.
