Chinese Folkarts Shop

[ From: Jason Jia | Published: 2008-07-08 Views: 2203 | Booked times: 59 ]

Chinese Folkarts Shop specializes in folk handicrafts, such as paper cuts, embroidered shoes, kites, facial make-ups of the Beijing Operas, dough figurines, silk figurines, folk jewelry, Chinese calligraphy and paintings, chopsticks, etc. Among their exclusive merchandise, the shop carries pottery items like Buddhas and unicorns, and shadow puppets.

 

The shop plays classical Chinese music to attract customers¡¯ attention. Foreign visitors account for 70-80% of their customers.

 

On a picturesque note, a white cat with yellow eyes was wandering in the shop at the time of my visit. The shop owner told me the cat was a stray, until a shop assistant took her in and the cat refused to leave ever since. Many foreign visitors like to hold the cat in arms and have pictures taken.

 

What customers appreciate:

Classical Chinese music, variety of folk handicrafts, reasonable prices.
