The Sayerr Jobe Avenue
(also spelt Sayer) starts from Westfield
and carries up towards the market and up towards Bambo and
the old Tipper Garage.
Close to the enclosed market at the intersection of Mosque Road and Sayerr Jobe
Avenue, every foot of kerbside space is very often taken up by small traders
and shoppers, and every bit of road is congested with cars, bicycles,
wheelbarrows, and yet more shoppers.
Further south east you will come across numerous barber hair
stylist shops with often humorous
hand-painted billboards depicting a few of the current styles,
furniture workshops where craftsmen put together intricately designed bridal beds, and
ironmongery shops, with lines of alluminium ladles and heaps of
cooking pots, roughly moulded in the traditional way.
In the summer of 2010, Serrekunda's main road was re-laid
with tarmac. This road building construction work goes all
the way past the old Tipper Garage.
each other on the avenue are two quality craft shops
- Art Collections and the Samory Touray Timbuktoo
Bead and Mask Shop (tel: 9919116).
They sell contemporary and antique
carvings, beads, masks, bronze statues, drums,
and textiles from all over West Africa such as the bogolan
which originates from Mali.
There is also one other place worth visiting and that is
Karamo Art (tel: 9900086).
