Shanghai Antique and Curio Store (Shànghǎi wénwù shāngdiàn) Review

A pleasant departure from the touristy shops in the area, this government-owned store is an excellent place to gauge whether you are being taken for a ride elsewhere. Goods range from small pieces of embroidery to wedding baskets (traditionally used to hold part of the bride's dowry). A sign warns that some pieces may not be taken out of the country, and we don't recommend you try and find out.
