Sellers have plenty of free time because of the lack of customers.
Some even make votive paper themselves due to having so much free time on their hands.
Ghost month is when the majority of burning of votives takes place. Popular offerings include clothes, jewelry, and smartphones which are put on sale on the pavements.
There is a diverse range of clothes on offer, although no one buys them.
Luxury votive objects such as houses and cars have not sold well this year.
Each item of votive clothing costs between VND35,000 and VND80,000.
A house is valued from VND180,000 to VND250,000.
