When I go to Laos I hardly go shopping and when I do is either to buy Lao stamps or Lao silk products, mostly Lao silk skirt. I bought a few items from my last trip to Laos at a Lao Silk Skirt Shop in Vientiane. The owner Noi has one shop at the Ethnic Handicraft Market beside the main Post Office in Vientiane.
If you can find Talat Sao or the Morning Market, then the Post Office is opposite of the mall. You can also visit her other shop at Vangthong Night Plaza or 450 Year Vientiane Market in Building 2 on the 1st Floor.
