Here’s some other cool stuff we found in other buildings in Hua Qiang Bei. The surface mount part reels we’ve been questing on every tour were present in spades. This is one of dozens of shops with inexpensive reels of resistors, capacitors, inductors, etc.
More pictures below the fold.
Drive-thru reel service. This is a small shed outside a larger market building, walk up and order your reels! This is where Seeed Studio sources their passive parts.
A case and enclosure distributor. They got a few colorful metal cases, but most are boring beige boxes. We’re so sick of beige!
A winding maze of stands in yet another market building. People are cooking, eating, sleeping, generally living life inside the market.
One building is dedicated to cell phones and accessories. Want your own customized cell phone? Order it in the morning and pick it up in the afternoon. This display has a bunch of cell phone watches.
