I went to the shopping district in Yu Gardens today, a difficult place to describe, with outdoor stalls full of everything you can imagine, from worse-than-dollar-store quality toys to umbrellas, rubber bands, fake flowers, chopsticks, underwear, gift bags and party supplies. Some of the connected buildings house multiple floors of vendor stalls, known amongst foreigners as the “Junkateria.” The higher quality stores sell antiques, cloisonne, tapestries and art. I chanced upon a hardware hut that sold some interesting items.
Heavy door knockers come in pairs.
Individual door knockers.
Fancy key rings.
I am certain I’ll return to the Yu Gardens shopping district. There’s no JoAnn’s or Hobby Lobby here, so I’ll be looking for craft items and children’s birthday party gifts. I’ll try to take some better pictures of the outdoor stalls… Yu Gardens Shopping, to be continued.
