Riyadh-Butha shopping

Saudi has tons of fabulous malls and upscale shops but it also has some famous local shopping. Many Westerners living in Saudi prefer going to these interesting  places where prices are good and you can find basic housewares and a wide range of everyday items.

  1. Lyn, as always you show us really interesting photos and fill us in on details and descriptions. With my 3 children, I tried to buy 2 or 3 new outfits every season then “filled in” with other gently used clothing. 🙂
    I like that our small town has two big box stores and three thrift or resale stores. Kohl’s is for fairly reasonable priced clothing and new household items, Wal Mart for even lessmoney, then for clothes I like “Thrifty Chic” and “Toujours” shops along with Goodwill Store. There are many reasons in the winter to go to Malls, (Polaris and Tuttle Crossing) to walk around in warmth, to look at people 🙂 and decorations. There is such a competition between places you may find bargains. Have a wonderful rest of the week! ♡

  5. Lovely detailed photos, Lynn. Do those market areas keep going during the evening? it looks like night-time in that top picture, with electric lights on, as well.

    • I had lots of work ha ha so no i did not. I basically wore my work pants and a shirt. No frills were allowed in our household. But many women wear what they are wearing in their home. I guess it might be like a woman wearing a winter coat and whatever she might wear under it depending on where she is going. But this totally covers you , so you might just slip it on over your house dress.
