  Dongtai Lu Antique Market
by rosie_b

It's a long row of little stores, where they sell a lot of antiques and memorabilias. If you're looking for Chairman Mao's memorabilia, you're coming to the right place. Other than that, they also have a variety of furniture selections, potteries, and other collectable items.

What to buy: Mao's memorabilia, chinese potteries, ceramics. But be careful when you are looking for real antiques, because some of them can be new stuff as oppose to antique.

What to pay: It depends on what you buy .. small items like bags or bowl can be about US$5 .. bigger items can be more than that (I don't really know, because I only buy small stuff)

Address: Dongtai Lu
Directions: It's near Shuguang Hospital.
Theme: Antiques

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
