In Baigongfang, aka Beijing Handcraft and Art Museum, there exist a special collection shop with some of unique items. All merchandise inside are limited in amount, and generally quite pricey for casual shoppers.

As a lover of calligraphy, I was particularly enthralled by the three pieces exact replicas of works by Wang Xizhi, Wang Xianzhi, and Wang Xunzhi. These three works by the most famous calligraphers   were 5 meter long each, and framed in gold. Each piece is sold at RMB 18600 due to their high collection value. In case you are wondering, the originals are at the Palace Museum,

Other collections include a set of four golden watches which had undergone the Buddha's consecration ceremony, sold at RMB 28600, and a commemorative book of Mei Lanfang, China's greatest opera star. The "Mei Lanfang's Art on the Stage" is pegged at RMB 9900.

What I appreciate:
Wang Xizhi's calligraphy

What customers appreciate:
Rare collectible items
