A block west of South Xizang Rd, this market street has more than 100 stalls strewn along both Dongtai Rd and Liuhekou Rd. It’s a long sprawl of miniature terracotta warriors, Guanyin figures, imperial robes, walnut-faced luóhàn statues, twee lotus shoes, helicopter pilot helmets and Mao-era knick-knacks, but generally only recent stuff such as art deco (and later) ornaments are genuine.

Get haggling: a good rule of thumb is if you like the look of something and can get a fair price for it, buy it for what it is and not as an antique.
