Streetfuls of KnickknacksSure, Shanghai has some great markets where you can find just about anything, but wandering the local streets and alleys will let you stumble upon things you didn't even know you needed...
Not only will you find kitschy and often nostalgic knickknacks being sold off carts or laid out on the ground, but through little stands and kiosks and sweet, older ladies selling daily necessities in the nongtangs, you'll catch a glimpse of very local living. Stop by with a smile, and they will for sure reward you with a story - or even a small, tangible memory to bring home.
