Panjiayuan Market

The long weekend ended with a trip to Panjiayuan Market. Li Xin came over to watch the girls and we loaded into a car with a friend to the trip into town. Being up in Shunyi has many benefits but at times we definitely wonder what country we are living in so the excursion into Beijing was needed. The market is a good sized one - from the China Guide

The Panjiayuan Market is a super shopping market for all Chinese arts and crafts. It is made up of over three thousand individual stalls covering 48,500 square metres. There really is something for everyone here. Even Hillary Clinton has shopped at Panjiayuan. 

We made a few small purchases because our shipment from Taiwan is still slowly making its way toward us and we've forgotten all that is coming.

After the market, we headed to a hutong for lunch and a quick stroll before returning home to the wee ones.
