The 45th Prison Craft Fair is taking place from 1st to 11th March 2012 at Klong Prem Prison in Bangkok. This is an annual event that showcases the work of inmates from all around Thailand. Large tents are set up in the fields in front of Klong Prem and each prison has their own shop. This is a kind of prison version of OTOP. Some of the more popular items on sale are furniture but there are also arts and handicraft. If you go on the last days you might get some great prices, but be warned, often the best pieces have long since been bought up. This is a very popular event with local people. The fair runs from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. until Sunday 11th March 2012.
