Guangzhou has its antique market in the alleys off
Daihe Lu. It's very informal and consists mostly of people peddling
wares from their windows or the back of a truck. It can he very
interesting, but be aware that few of these `antiques' are very
old and many may be fake Still, it's good fun to explore.
The Friendship Stores have antique sections, but don't
expect to find a bargain.Only antiques that have been cleared for
sale to foreigners may be taken out of the country. When you buy
an item that is more than 100 years old it will come with an of
ficial red wax seal attached. This seal does not necessarily indicate
that the item is an antique. You'll also get a receipt of sale which
you must show to customs when you leave the country, otherwise,
the antiqto will be confiscated. Imitation antiques are sold everywhere.
Some museum shops sell replicas of pieces on exhibit.
On the left of the Cultural Park and tucked away down
a small street is a fascFnating antiques market full of ceramics,jade
and other collectibles, The Owners of the stalls all trip over each
other to show you the cream of the crop. Haggle hard. On the west
of Shamian lsland, on Shamian Sijie, is a string of souvenir shops
selling paintings, clothes and calligraphy. The road leading up
to the Temple of the Six Banyan Trees is also chock-a-block with
souvenir shops bursting with ceramics and jade. The Guangzhou Antique
Shop at 172 Wende Bei Lu has a reasonable range of (not cheap) souvenir
Brushes, paints and other art materials may be worth
checking: a lot of this stuff is heing imported by western countries,
so you should be able to pick it up cheaper at the source. Scroll
paintings are sold every where and are invariably expensive, partly
because the material on which the paintings are done is expensive.
There are many street artists in China who sit on the sidewalk making
drawings and paintings on the spot and selling them to passers-by.
Beantiful kites are sold in China and are worth getting
just to hang on your wall.Paper rubbings of stone inscriptions are
cheap and make nice wall hangings when framed. Papercuts are sold
everywhere and some are exquisite.
Jade and ivory jewellery is commonly Sold in China,
but watch out for fakes. Remember that every ivory item bought brings
the African elephant closer to extinction,and that countries such
as Australia and the USA prohibit the importation of ivory. We Strongly
urge you not to buy ivory goods.
