The rebirth of consignment shops : Rekindling Keelung’s golden era

文字-A A +A

Keelung Port was once the busiest port in Taiwan. Many merchant ships would sell foreign goods through consignment shops while passing through Keelung Port, transforming it into a Mecca for imported goods. At that time, many people from the upper class would shop there, and in Keelung's heyday, Consignment Shop Street was a hub of activity.

 

However, society gradually changed with the passage of time, and in 1979, Taiwan opened up for tourism, expanding the trade market and initiating a decline in consignment shops. In recent years, young people in Keelung have begun returning to their hometowns and attempted to revitalize the concept of consignment shops, using this charming characteristic of Keelung to attract tourism. Nowadays, holiday markets and guided tours are regularly held in Consignment Shop Street, attracting tourists with a combination of history and innovation. Hopefully, such activities can spark a new golden era of consignment shops just like the good old days.

委託行重生 基隆繁華再造

基隆港曾經是台灣最為繁忙的港口,許多商船會在經過基隆港時,透過委託行販賣國外的商品,因此基隆成為舶來品的聖地,當時許多上流社會的人都會至此購物,委託行街區成為當時最熱鬧的地方。

隨著時代變遷,在1979年台灣開放觀光後,貿易市場逐漸擴展,委託行也因此沒落。不過近年來,基隆陸續有青年返鄉,開始重振委託行,建立基隆觀光特色。近年都會在委託行舉辦假日市集和導覽活動,吸引觀光人潮,並結合歷史與創新,盼望能重生委託行昔日的光彩。
