What you'll do

General process: 1. We will gather at Exit 4 of Jiashan Road subway station (line 4 and line12)at 10 a.m. on Saturday or Sunday weekend. 2. We will take around the first anqiue market about 30 minutes . 3.Then we will take subway for 30 minutes to arrive at weekend flea market. The subway cost is about 4 yuan. 3.11:00 after arriving, we will explore the market, which is divided into: a) outdoor ong flea market on Saturday and Sunday b) permanent booth, c) permanent second-hand shop, selling daily clothes, shoes, bags, electronic supplies, musical instruments, pet supplies, all kinds of tools and appliances in the family, old computers, mobile phones, printers, new and strange things, you can explore and“ Taobao " At 4.13 o'clock, you can eat in the nearby KFC or small shop (lunch can be taken care of by yourself according to your own needs). 5. Walk one kilometer to visit the old Shanghai houses in Shikumen. The people in these houses have left or even been demolished quickly. But you can feel the unique Lane building in old Shanghai at that time, as if you are in history, imagine the past of people coming and going here every day. Now, no one is waiting for their disappearance quietly. 6. It's about 2 o'clock. Everyone can move freely. Unique experience: 1. This is a flea market with more than 70 years of existence. It began to exist during the War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression. It condenses memories of a generation, like a living museum. 2. You will walk into the most authentic Shanghainese (at least the previous generation) one of the most basic life details: shopping in the second-hand weekend market, bargaining. They have special feelings for things, for life, for many things (perhaps we young people think that these things don't really need to exist and trade, but for them it is part of memory and life) 3. There are a lot of shoppingmall that will never appear in the sale, interesting stall owners, people who are passionate about the old things, strange and incredible but existing goods. 4. You may also be able to buy the items you are interested in. 5. If you are a designer, a social worker, and the people who go to and from the high-rise buildings every day are very different, maybe you can find some inspiration. You can find the phonographs of the 20s, vinyl records, and old ones at very cheap prices. The electronic products, here messy, mashup, disorder is the most real life. 6. We will also go to see the buildings and houses to be demolished that will soon disappear. 7. Due to the rapid changes in Shanghai, you may not find the exact information yourself, but here you can meet interesting people with me and see the most interesting and most grounded Shanghai.

I am Cheer. I have been in Shanghai for 9 years and I am still curious about this city. Currently planning and business in a startup company, I like modern Shanghai, Nanjing West Road, Joy City, K11, Huaihai Road, Xujiahui Meiluo City, ipam, West Bank, the modern art museum, the high-rise buildings here, very creative Shops and shoppingmall showcase the modern and trendy Shanghai every day. But I also like Shanghai with a full of life: Shikumen's century-old old house, a queue of breakfast stalls, a fireworks market, a full-fledged Wutong street, and the locals are bargaining with local people. A variety of exotic items I have seen, some messy but interesting weekend flea markets. I like to visit the flea market. There will be new discoveries in the flea market, interesting people, ancient things, and strange things. Whether you are a designer or a curious hunter interested in the city, you will find an interesting lifestyle here. The flea market is like a historical slice of a city, where you can cross the past and walk into the life of the most ordinary people, where you can see more lively life and objects than in the museum. With the growth of the city, Shanghai's flea market is disappearing. I have been lucky enough to visit most of Shanghai's flea market in 9 years and have found many interesting things, but these places are every year or even every month. Change, they are hidden in the corner of the city, if you look for yourself you will be very confused, because you can't find a place that is sure to exist. But I can help you find it, I hope to share it with everyone before it disappears.

Where you'll be

We will be at the exit of a subway station, visit a weekend antique market with about 70 booths, then take the subway to the main experience area, a second football market-sized second-hand market tour, where people come and go. Shanghai citizens, mostly middle-aged middle-aged people, we will see all kinds of peculiar things that are never seen in shoppingmall and Taobao. Then we will go to see the Shikumen group of the 100-year-old house that was quickly demolished, and it seems to be the illusion of crossing history.
