Chinatown, San Francisco

23 Aug

Today for lunch Lindsay and I decided to head up to Chinatown and explore the overwhelming stores.  The shops in Chinatown will shock you because they appear to be small little shops with one door openings but once you step in, it’s like your Alice in Wonderland transporting from the street to a huge indoor market full of trinkets.   OK, some may say junk but it’s really impressive what’s hidden in all the Chinatown crevices.  Here are a few things we found today at lunch.

All of the windows above the Chinatown shops have tons of clothing and/or artifacts hanging outside on display.

I thought this beaded rooster was quite interesting!

One of the neatest shops we found was a huge pet store!  It was about 3 or 4 stories tucked away with all sorts of interesting animals for sale.  This fish was twice as big as my head!

Chinatown is a pretty unique place to peruse.  If you decide to encounter it on your own, make a point to duck into a few stores because you will be very surprised at what you will find!
