Photo Essay: The Dry Goods Market in Shanghai

Outrageously kitschy and cute - baby ponytail holders at the Dry Goods Market in the Nanshi District of Shanghai.

Being an indoor bazaar, the Dry Goods Market is indeed "dry," which we appreciated after strolling through the outdoor market in the rain.

Veggies are also for sale here, but fake.

Fruit helps to learn Chinese.

After the gray day outside, a color assault.

Lots and lots of everything, not even sure what. This is, I reminded myself, the country where all those cheap toys are made.

Buying coloring books.

Neon yarn in a neon basked.

 What one needed outside that day.


  1. colors everywhere- I loved the pic of 'everything but you weren't sure what it was'- ha ha- just stuff but nonessential stuff.

  2. Loving the bright colors and imagining how interesting it must be to walk in there on a cold, gray and overcast day.

  3. Wow, I'm not sure how I'd handle that! I've always been a boring muted color person - even my closet is mostly brown, dark green, or beige when I'm feeling squirrely. Great photos!
