Really, Made in China

Quick post but I need to share.  I have talked about the pottery place here in the ‘Kou before, but today we found the secret room!  I found a ton of name brand stuff, like Rachel Ray.  I ended up buying several items for 147RMB… roughly $23US.  The Rachel Ray piece with the lid retails for about $50.00 (I looked it up).  I am attaching some photos so you can see for yourself.  This is one of those times that I wish I had a portal so I could bring all of my family and friends to get these amazing deals… my mom and aunt would never leave – it’s a bargain shopping bonanza!

Also, there are two pictures not related to the post – one is from HK – it reminds me of Christmas and the other one is my friend Jen with my iPhone – too funny.

    Actually it is a good thing I am not allowed in the portal!!!!! They would never have anything left to export!

    Thanks for the sharing. It seems like we are all there together.
    Many Blessings!

    I’d love being in the portal. A shoppers heaven. It will happen in a few years – we will be able to say “Beam me up Scotty” just like Star Trek. Glad you had the fun of the discovery. Jude

    I love this post, Claire! Wow, what a great secret room :0. Looks like a lot of fun to browse through with a friend. Also, I loved the lantern picture – great shot – it captivated me (you never know what will, I guess) – thanks for sharing and keep up the work of uncovering more in mysterious China…

  5. Great find! Found out that I will be in Beijing next November. Will you still be in China (I hope!)….??
