Simple Secret Of Buying Stuff At Idumota Market Lagos by StoneColdBiceps(m): 5:35pm On Dec 01, 2014
So you loved Idumota market and you loved to shop stuffs at idumota market? Ok....
Dat stuffs u tink u bought cheap on d street or shops along Nnamdi Azikiwe street and other outer part of Idumota market, so you think u got it for cheap!? Ok...

I've bought packs of singlets, body cream, cologn/perfume always on d outside till my babe told me to go inner shops, and wolla dey are almost half d prices i bought on d outside street shops of the market!

So, This are the secret of buying relatively cheap at idumota market specially if ur a newbie in d market...

Any stuff u buy along the road on d outside of d main idumota market is uhhhh, ohhhh, hmmmm cheap! But if u go a little further inside d marker dat same stuff u but on d outer marker is relatively cheaper wit like maybe #300 difference!...and if u decided to go a little more further into d market u'll get dat stuff dats relatively cheaper by #300 for #400 cheapie*. Then if u go a little bit bit more more further u'll get d same stuff #400/#500 cheapie cheapie*. Thats according to d stuff ur buying.

Now you know!

If ur not buying ur provisions frm idumota then ur paying more for it and depriving u from making additional profit.

Just enter bus frm surulere to eko idumota or tinubu cms *shine ur eyes o, no cross road, use foot bridge if ur at cms*then ask for direction to go d inner market. Ask sellers u see on ur way and maybe tell dem wat u wonna buy and for direction on wat part to get it cheap.

Af i tried?

Nooo my brother I only just expantiated what the op wrote, not that I'm into the business you asked me. I'm sure there are some persons here who deal on weavon wholesale. There are a lot of weavon and hair pieces sellers at apongbon but one has to apply wisdom as not to buy fake and also get cheaper.

u nail it and like u said wisdom is key that is why people get trained on each item let say selling of cloth alone or jewellery or weavon and one wonder why they had to learn for 2-3years
