Fabric Market

Yesterday, we checked out Shanghai's fabric market - multiple floors of every kind of fabric and tailoring skill you can imagine. Though we both think we'll get a few things made while we're here, we mostly just looked this first time. It was overwhelming just trying to take it all in!
We did buy three pashminas, though, which we're using to hang on our walls to warm the apartment up a little. And, we both bought a little trinket from the jewelry vendors outside. This album: has a picture of Jeff talking with the Tibetan woman who custom-made a bracelet large enough to fit over his hand.


  1. Fabulous photos! It looks like you had a great day of shopping and browsing. I like the triangular sign in the tree...was that a yield sign? Oh and also, did Jeff get a part time job as a mannequin? ;0)

  2. I'm glad you are getting a feel for the fabric of Shanghai society

  3. What fun you guys are having, I'm so happy for you. We continue to love all the pictures too. Thanks!
