China National Day

Gone, Gone Dongtai Road Antique Market Closed

Dongtai Road Antique Market

Dongtai Road Antique market was one of the top attractions in the city. The market used to be the place to go and buy all sort of (may be, most likely not) antiques and overall interesting stuff – stone and wood carvings, some art – paintings, porcelain, etc

Well, as of recently – may be couple of months – the market is gone!

I asked several of the local people if the market has moved to a new location. The answer was “No” it is gone, shutdown and that is it.

Near by, on Xizang Lu, at the intersection with LuHeKou Lu, you can find the Shanghai Insect market – a place for all your cricket, grasshopper, turtle, fish, bird and occasional woodcarving needs.
