Located in the Drum Tower area, Guang Ming Ge offers a variety of Old Beijing souvenirs and baubles.

 

Entering the shop, I was first attracted by Tau-Er-Yea, or Sir Rabbit. This colorfully dressed, cat-mounted rabbit with a human body is known by all Beijingers. Legend tells of this fairy rabbit that lived on the moon. It came to Beijing to rescue people from a plague striking the city. The rabbit rode a cat so it could move around faster to help more people. Even today, Beijingers offer fruits and cakes to Sir Rabbit during Mid-Autumn Festival to honor its good deed. Each Tau-Er-Yea sells for RMB 30.

 

The shop also carries a range of hutong photos, Great Wall clay, etc. Be sure to at least check out the hutong photos, which depict the typical Beijing traditional residence - Siheyuan.  Each framed photo cost RMB 100.

 

Also, there are beautiful items such as white porcelain figurines, straw-weaved animals, opera mask pendants, and Chinese zodiac amulets. Mr. Guo, the owner, speaks a little English. Communication shouldnt be a problem.
