Personally, halo is not my thing. However, if you are of that religious persuasion, be sure it is authentic and not perpetuating a crime.

I looked at 580 West Nanjing Road and the market shops at the Science Museum Metro stop. 580 is more compact and easier to shop.

Do NOT buy in the first shop you see something.

Only buy after you have seen the same item in 3 shops at least. There is low/medium/high quality and you need to learn what you are negating a price on.

Sellers will start at ridiculous prices - eg 3000 CNY, or even a more "generous" 1500 CNY because u good customer etc etc.

Do NOT offer prices - let them keep coming down. In fact if you agree on a price you said, and walk away, they can get mighty pissed off.

I would highly recommend Shopping Tours Shanghai. Suzy, MJ and gang make shopping really fun and know the vendors who are reliable.

I had a wonderful day with lunch, a van to drive us and found some fabulous clothes made for me, plus prescription glasses. Great bargains, great company and great fun.
