Antique Market In Shanghai

July 11, 2013

One of the most interesting markets in Shanghai is Dong Tai Lu – a street market full of antiques – old and new!! You have to bargain like mad, and although I don’t like the principle, I usually get into the swing of it, and feel quite mean about the ridiculous price I offer. I usually get what I want and so does the vendor….!!! You can see how items are displayed and somehow the dust and mess makes them more appealing.

I really wanted one of these Miao tribal collars but had no room in my suitcase.

    i’ve been there Mary and bought some of those beautiful caligraphy brushes in one of your photos. But I suspect that I’m not a professional as you with the bargaining. X Mel

      I really don’t know how good I am Mel, but it’s all fun and often the difference is only a dollar or so isn’t it! Love the brushes. x

    I’ve been to this market! So much fun. I actually love to bargain once I get over the feeling of being too stingy. Thanks for sharing all your photos!

    Hi Mary,

    Mum sent me your post via Elizabeth Teeland. If you’d like anything picked up in DongTai Lu and shipped back shoot me an email (charles.slater@thebluehive.com)… I’m always happy to go haggling!

    Cheers,
    Charlie.
