If you enjoy reading as much as I do, then you know the importance of having a good bookmark when reading a long book. If you wish to have a variety of bookmarks, or simply want a special one to use, then be sure to visit Du Yi Ge at the Panjiayuan Antique market.
Duyi Ge carries an amazing array of old, handmade bookmarks. Their products depict various subjects, such as traditional Chinese poems, modern paintings, religious figures, and historical figures. The selection here is the largest of its kind in China! They collect their bookmarks from all over China over the past decades. Some items here you won¡¯t find anywhere else in the world.
Prices vary greatly. A 70s Chairman Mao Zedong¡¯ Portrait and Quotes bookmark, for instance, prices at RMB 80. A 80s Poem bookmark by Dufu, the most renowned poet in ancient china, sell for RMB 60. Prices for others differ depending on age and subject.
The shop assistants speak a little English, and the owner herself is a bookmark expert. You will find her quite helpful for choosing just the one for you.
