alteration shop street, HCMC

There are numerous alteration shops on Ly Chinh Thang Street in HCMC.

Having found that out, I now go to the shop shown below... they are friendly, have done a great job with my things, and at a VERY fair price! No one that I've met yet (been about 3 times) speaks any English... but with my meager Vietnamese skills (mostly numbers) and a lot of hand gestures, we're able to communicate pretty well.

For little things (making straps on a dress shorter... fixing a hole on a seam...) they have me sit on a little red stool while they do the quick fix. Something like that costs 10,000 dong (or 50 cents). ...Ok!   : )

Just a few doors down from this intersection...
