The Sayerr Jobe Avenue (also spelt Sayer) starts from
Westfield Junction, Serrekunda, 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 shining 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 mud cloth
which originates from Mali.
There is also one other place worth visiting and that
is Karamo Art (tel: 9900086).
