The Thief's Market in Arab Street Singapore

The other day I saw a place marked in the Singapore map as the Thief's Market. Markets with such a name used to be in every city in Asia i suppose, not really a market where thieves come to sell their ill begotten wares but rather a flea market. I place where you you could a few cents for your old broken thingamabob or last place to search for a really odd item.
The place is still alive, here in Singapore. A fascinating place full of color and life, actual the far opposite of the grand malls lining Orchard Road which would be full adorned with Christmas lights.
Belts, commando helmets, and perfume anyone. Maybe there's a story in this?
