Wise move might have been to ask these questions a week ago, if you arriving this weekend.

Try www.Nanjing-Heirlooms.com for information on the upolstry Silk markets, and all the other items you want to shop for as well.

When you arrive, ring Judy, it will cost half what you pay at Xintandi or Hauhai Lu.

Or just go to Xintandi, Anthony Chow, and pay their prices are still cheap compared to California.

For curtain fabric at rock bottom prices try 1618 Cao An Road. This upholstry market is a long way west of the city center and quality varies widely, but the selection is huge. This place is NOT a stop on the tourist loop and will take a good part of a day. If you are not comfortable in Shanghai, or not a serious buyer, don't bother.

For the cheapest tailoring, there is always the new and improved fabric market. MaoMing Lu, particularly between Changle Lu and Huai Hai Lu, is full of quality men's tailor if you are willing to pay more.
