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.
This used to be the market

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.
More on that as well as pictures of all sort of insects in my next posting
Now off to FuYou Market which may or may not be hosting the vendors from the now closed Dongtai Market
Stay tuned for the posting ….
