Little Rabbit, a little shop in Cheng Fu Street, holds a large variety of folk handicrafts collected from the rural areas of Northwestern China.

Cloth items are most eye-catching when I looked inside. Each one is finely made with beautiful embroidery. They come in different forms: toys, children's pillows, fragrant pouches, shoes, to name a few. The little dangling charms with the colorful animal images sold the best. Price is around RMB 20 each.

I also saw some fragrant pouches, which is rare in cities nowadays. With perfume and some Chinese herbal medicine inside, the pouches smell sweet and supposedly repel evil spirits too. Younger folks use it as a token of love. Price is about RMB 25.

Looking at the shelves, they were fully occupied by the lovely clay or porcelain figurines of the 12 Chinese zodiac animals. Prices vary from RMB 30 to RMB 45.

Other items inside the shop include paper-cuttings, paper fans, farmerí»s paintings, and shadow puppets

The owner was a former English teacher, so she can speak good English.

What I appreciate:
Precious handicrafts made by country folks

What customers appreciate:
Beautiful handicrafts, learn about folk culture
