Perhaps because I cannot compare this store to it's previous incarnations....but I found this store to be incredible.
The wide variety of goods, particularly their porcelain (benjarong) selection, was amazing...more than I'd seen in a month of Thai travels. Hand painted bowls were as little as $20, with a full hand painted tea set for $100....which I thought was very reasonable.
They also had an extensive pewter and assemblage (painted figurines) collection. I admit, the fabric selections were not as strong as what I found on the Sunday night market in Chiang Mai, and they were more expensive. I did not take a look at the jewelry section, as I hand limited time and loaded up on jewelry in Chiang Mai (but I wish I had taken some time to take a look).
I also thought their prices were more than reasonable. Particularly when you consider these are not the mass produced crap you find in the street markets. I also thought their service was very helpful (although bordering on overly solicitous).
Bottom line, I loved the store, and wish I had budgeted more time and funds for this excursion (it was the last day of my 4 week trip). If you are anywhere near the National Stadium, it's worth a visit. If you absolutely cannot visit, they have a limited selection (with higher prices) on their website (www.naraiphand.com)
