THE sale of water-throwing materials and Thingyan-related goods have met with luke warm sales at the Mandalay Zaycho market this year as Thingyan Festival grows near.
“Thingyan products are not selling well this year. Water guns, Thingyan necklaces, masks, Thingyan glasses etc are being sold. Sales have obviously declined this year when compared to previous years because this year buyers from other towns other than Mandalay are not coming to buy our wares. It’s only the Thingyan toys that do not sell well”, said the owner of Thanphyutan shop at Zaycho market.
The decline of sale is due to threat of El Nino weather, it is reported.
