Shanghai: Qi Pu Road
A must go shopping area in Shanghai is definitely “Qi Pu Lu”! It is the closest you can get for wholesale shopping in Shanghai and there are lots of lots of clothes! I bought some socks, pretty little things, dresses, leggings etc! Over here, you’ve got to bargain really hard! There is one trick though! Tell them you are a blogshop owner, ask for their name card, and tell them you are sourcing for designs! You also need to inform them that you will buy one or two of their pieces for photoshoot. If their clothes are shortlisted you will call them and arrange for shipment. HAHA. It actually works! The wholesale malls operates from 7am to 5pm, so you got to start really early to shop the entire mall!
We stepped out of the mall and realized that once the mall is closed, many vendors lug their goodies out and start laying them out for sale! We discovered a whole new world! Their BBQ meat is not as good as the ones we tried in Beijing though!
