W = Wood Antiques

Last week, I shared a picture of Vigan City for the letter V. This week, the pictures I am sharing are products that can be seen in Vigan.



Antique Store

Calle Crisologo

Because Vigan is one of the heritage places here in the Philippines, the famed Calle Crisologo is where you can buy all sorts of souvenirs, and yes, you can also buy wood antiques here. Although most are religious items, there are antique shops that sells tables, chairs, and other wood antiques.

Of course, most tourists cannot buy this big antiques, but people with their own vehicles can really get to own these great finds. Pictures taken on different dates using different cameras. The first one was taken March 2008 using my cell phone, and the second one was taken May 2008 using my digital camera. That's how much I love this place - even though I've been there lots of times, I still take pictures of the same things in a different angle.
