I’d like to thank Tara Osterstock for this tip about a nearby Mr. D.I.Y. store in Pakkred. While teaching Story Time at Bumble Bee Free Library, she handed out gorgeous jewel-like stickers to the children for their crafts project. I was in search of unique stickers for ESL class.
Tara had bought her stickers at a Mr. D.I.Y. store in Chinatown, but she sent me the link to a Mr. D.I.Y. branch here in Pakkred, located at the Crystal PTT Chaiyapreuk (99/9 Moo 5, Chaiyapreuk Road).
It is just across the Rama IV Bridge near the Pakkred Pier, so I dashed over and to my delight, discovered a wonderful, well-stocked shop similar to discount “dollar stores” such as the Japanese Daiso shops elsewhere in Bangkok. Mr. D.I.Y. is better organized and has a wider selection of knickknacks for crafts, as well as everyday and specialty items such as kitchenware, tools, birthday decorations and just in time for Songkran—water guns! I definitely recommend Mr. D.I.Y. when you need craft supplies and other household items at reasonable prices.
