Visited the antiques market on Dongtai Lu, which is very close to the apartment. Some nice stuff for sale although there must be some doubt as to whether the age of the items allows them to be described as antiques. The “Hello” men around this area scuttle up beside you and utter the words “Hello! Antique?” shoving a postcard bought at the Shanghai museum of Art under your nose. I felt like teaching them the phrase “Hello! Blatant Reproduction?”
