    Shenzen Shopping

    Ok, looks like I want to go to Shenzen! I'll be hunting for curtain/roman blinds makers as well as modern furniture and contemporary area rugs (wool or wool/cotton blend). If you have any good contacts for these items in Shenzen, would you mind sharing?

    Thanks!

    Tex, our curtain guy was located next to the BBC Restaurant on the 3/F and has recently moved to the 4/F. A friend is going to Shenzen on Friday so will ask her to write his store # down. I have not seen rugs in the shopping mall nor furntiure. You'll need to go out to the furniture area and I can't remeber the name of the street its on. Anyone?

    Also there's a great book covering shopping in Shenzen

    http://www.shopinshenzen.com/

    Also I noticed that everyone seems to be buying Golf Clubs. So if you're a golfer you might want to check them out.

    Also the Painter on the 4/F is amazing. He's in shop 4056A.

    shopping in shenzhen

    You might like to check out the YWCA. They run a one-day shop with a very experienced shopper - also mentioned in the book. If you get a multiple entry visa, you can go the first time with the Y and get oriented to go back another day.

    oh, and to answer my previous question, in case anyone wants to know, they do do roller blinds in fairly high-tech materials in shenzen.
