It's pretty amazing what a little imagination can do. For example, take Hongfu, whose various animal figures are all made from plants. This Laitai Flower Market shop really stood out with this special folk art originated from Northeast China.

A look around the shelves showed animal figurines like bears, squirrels, hedgehogs, rabbits, camels, and ducks. The most impressive ones were the chickens. Some were made of corn, some were made of leaves. One particular piece featured a family of cute chicken figurines standing at the corner of the shop. 
 
I took a bear figurine to examine closely. It felt really light. The owner said the frame is made of foam. Then they glued the sterilized plants onto the body. Everything is made by hand.

A big rooster costs RMB 390. A hen costs RMB 190. A little chicken only costs RMB 35.

The shop also offers furniture, carpets, clay figurines, and fish wood carvings.

What I appreciate:
Beautiful handicrafts with unique craft

What customers appreciate:
