Tips For Surviving And Winning Big At Lekki Arts & Craft Market - By Sassy Funke

Lekki Arts & Craft (also known as Oba Elegushi International Market or Jakande Art Market) is what I would call a gem that does well to showcase the beauty that is within my country, Nigeria. It is a gem that gets overlooked because of its hidden location. Prepare to get another history lesson as you manure through this unique place. The market consists of well organised mini stores (over 60 stores if not more) that sell pieces from carvings to metal work to corals to painting to pearls and much more.

The market is located on Oba Elegushi Street, Off Lekki-Epe expressway (between 4th and 5th roundabout) which is about a 15-20min journey from Victoria Island. Below is a visual diary of my visit to the Lekki Arts and craft Market. I will also be sharing tips and contacts of stores that impressed me so read on:

Tips For Surviving And Winning Big At Lekki Arts & Craft Market

🚨*TIP 1* Don't buy from the first shop you visit (Window Shop First). Stores are well labelled so easy to find in case you want to return.

🚨*TIP 2* Prepare to bargain heavily (I always try to start my bid at 25% of the sellers first price).

🚨*TIP 3* Don't feel pressured to buy anything (especially if you have a few days in Lagos and you can visit again). Simply collect the vendors information for future visit.

🚨*TIP 4* Pretend to be a local and tell the vendor that Nigeria is home so they have to give you a non-touristy price.

🚨*TIP 5* Wear a hat and ensure you have water for hydration as it can very hot.

🚨*TIP 6* Avoid going at weekends if you can
