Roadside Crafts in Northeast Thailand, or Don’t Put All Your Baskets in One Egg

These type of roadside stalls appear all over Northeast Thailand and carry a variety of products depending on what is produced in the immediate area. One of the things I like about these near Na Kae in Nakhon Phanom Province, just over the  Sakon Nakhon Province line on road road 223 is the fact they they have plenty of room for people to pull their vehicles off the road. I have seen many near misses and some accidents at these places when people pull over not completely off the road. Do not forget that the driver of the car in front of you stopped in the roadside will probably not look when he swings the driver side door open.
Not only baskets, but an assortment of other useful household items. Okay the huge fish trap might find itselyfdecorating the ceiling of a fish restaurant before it finds itself in a river.
The point is that villagers are earning some money and passers by and tourists are getting local crafts at fair prices. And not to forget it keeps the crafts alive in Northeast Thailand
