Solely dedicated to the sale of antiques, the atmosphere in Triwindu differs from other markets.

 

The building itself, is a two-story, wooden structure that has stood since 1945, adding to the “antique” feel of the building. Strolling across the numerous aisles, you will be treated to various forms of antiques from different times in the past. The first floor contains mostly smaller items while the second floor is home to larger items ranging from automotive tools to old fashioned bicycles, antique cabinets, chairs and other furniture items.
