As you can see (if you can read Thai), the place advertises many beautiful ladies and it is always recruiting for more. The closest thing to a corkscrew that you will likely find (for sale) one without the cork. The BKK operator has no listing for any other James Jewlers. There is a James Gems that is a government shop on the edge of the city.

Would you like us to penetrate the current shop at 542/13-14 Petchburi Road to see if it is but a front for a jewelry shop? We will do this for you.
