GMarket Top 5 Nov Dec 2015 BannerThis is the second in our series highlighting our top 5 purchases from the Korean online store GMarket, in this case during the months of November and December 2015. GMarket for those who don’t know is an online marketplace similar to both Amazon Marketplace and eBay back in the United States, UK etc. You can purchase items through the website from some of the companies and have them delivered worldwide, whilst other products are only available domestically in South Korea. The range of different products stretches from clothing and cosmetics to groceries and household products.

Our top 5 products are a wide mix with each one being from a different product category. They may not all be super interesting but we’ve found each useful in their own way. Also they’re not Christmas themed but some are for the winter season.
