We chanced upon this market at Xizang Nan Lu after visiting Dongtai Lu Antique Market. AAA found this market far more interesting because you get a glimpse into the insect for pets/gaming trade that the locals indulge in. It was a hive of activity and we were happy to be there. Majority of the shops here were chock full with insects such as cicadas, grasshoppers etc. and all the interesting stuff that comes with rearing and fighting insects. There were some bird pet shops, an aquarium shop, plant & flower shop, a shop that sells fishing equipment, etc.
Walnuts - I did not know what they were for but they must be prized as some were displayed in showcases. I looked it up and I found this article on Walnut Therapy which was very interesting. We may even find some inspiration for tatting designs in them. Watch this report by CNTV here.Now I wish I had bought a pair.
What did I actually buy here? I bought some jade beads which I strung up into a necklace and a pair of earrings.
