Fodor's Review

This shop claims its covetable collection of mostly propaganda items from the '50s, '60s, and '70s is sourced from the countryside and areas in Sichuan Province and around Beijing and Tianjin. Whether they're authentic is up for debate. Shelves and racks are filled with women's clothing from local and international designers. Look for beautiful wrapping paper from Paper Tiger and dishtowels, notecards, and T-shirts from Pinyin Press, both designers based in Shanghai. Although this could be your one-stop shopping experience, remember this is communism at capitalist prices: expect to pay around Y200 for a small Revolution-era teapot and more than Y2,000 for a mirror from the same period.
