    The Shop of ChangShengYuan

    It was said the female empire CiXi of Qing Dynasty had drunk the yellow wine of ChangShenYuan when she fled from Beijing when 8 country allies invaded.

    So, the shop is very famous nowadays. I bought 2 bottle of 500 ml yellow wine at 32 RMB and a small bottle of 8 RMB which I drank before my night sleep. It made me feel warm inside and fell into sound sleep very quickly.

    It is a small shop specially selling paper cut. It is hard to believe those amazingly beautiful pieces of cut paper are only done buy a pair of scissor.

    The owner of the shop is a gentle and lovely lady. You can bargain a bit with her, but not too much.

    What to buy: Cut paper

    What to pay: Cut paper- 100 RMB

    Sanjin' s Papercuts: Paper Cutting

    moring of old street

    Lots of papercuts and shadowplay puppets. Very detailed. I specially enjoyed the shadowplay puppets (most above RMB100). For paper cut, I suggest you bring back to Beijing for framing. :-)

    There is another special goods at Pingyao: Beef (which I don't think it is nice, actually quite salty);

    What to buy: shadowplay pupptes, papercut

    What to pay: actually most shops sell such stuff

    Shoes: Making & selling

    by Willettsworld Written Sep 5, 2009

    For some reason, there are a lot of shops making and selling shoes in Pingyao. They look kind of like slippers (indoor shoes) more than outdoor ones but nice all the same.
