They sell both at Mandillas. If you go into the complex, go upstairs and ask where they sell wholesale wears. but they are expensive because it's foreign. You could get a pair of very nice jeans for 3, 4 to 5 k .

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!

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!

ldunmota is simply for shoopers who are not familair with Lagos lsland markets or shoppers who are in a hurry to just buy and catch the next bus home..

But for ldunmota born and bred Ajepako like me...shopping in Lagos lsland and buying loju dozen is a piece of cake..

Now here are places on the lsland for items and the locations of the sellers in large quantities..

Jewelry and accessories:..Dosunmu Obun Eko.....Ago Tower...axis (not even Balogun)

Wigs..weaveon..........bankole axis of Balogun market..

Kitchenware...Doherty...Ereko...and Ebute Ero..Gorodom..Holloway street

Cosmetics...Balogun and Pedro axis of Dosunmu..

Lace Material...Just go to Moshalasi Jimoh which seems to have dethroned Quaters (But ldunmota is also good for lace also John Street and Saudi..

For travelling bags and stuff...just go to the Nnamdi Azikwe axis bordering Martins Street with LSDPC and old Eko lnternational Bank..

Ankara...forget it...too much in balogun..

Shoes and bag...just concentrate on Gbajumo street axix of Balogun

Underwears...Dosunmu or Saba Street behind Great Nigeria House on Martin Street..

You want men suits..shoes and belts....then migrate to Mandilas axis of lagos lsland..

You want ladies dresses....start from Martins street....balogun...breadfruits..davies street..

Rubber sandals and slippers...Bridge street ..Onisemo...axis of ldunmota

Beaverages..wines and drinks...Start from Ereko..Alhaji lssa Williamms street and Apogbon axis of Lagos lsland..

Made-in-Nigeria shoes and bags...just go to Abe bridge eko bridge...

Finally for everything cheap and gbajo..gbanjo..gbanjo...it's ldunmota..

ldunmota andbLagos lsland is shoppers delight if you know your way..

Na true u talk op eg. if you want to buy jewellery Breadfruit street is the wrong place, find your way to Docemu...there's this street after docemu,can't remember the name where they sell designer glasses(repplica sha) you need to see guys buy them in bulk for 4'k/ 5'k then they'll display them in show glass and start selling for 20k n above
