I actually visited in 2016 at the recommendation of a friend. I asked what I should buy that was special but not expensive, and she sent me to Spin! I ended up ordering all sorts of items and having them shipped to me in Korea....More

Beautiful, modern handmade pottery. Artisan work is simple, elegant and sometimes whimsical. This is a retail store but shows like a gallery. A really fun little visit. 2 stories. Near Jingan temple so many other things to do there as well

You should make this a must stop if you are visiting or live in Shanghai. Great selections of unique ceramic pieces and all priced very reasonably. Also they offer a variety of shipping options if you wanted to send your friends some gifts.

A wonderful store with great modern design for home and table. A little tricky to find as there is no signage so you have to rely on the street address and Google Maps. The pricing is 1/3 of what you would pay on their .com...More

The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple,
while the main artery of excitement and entertainment
is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French
Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign
residents but displays a more commercial character.
Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and
trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing
