The 20,000 square meter area is filled with over 500 small vendors selling art, artifacts, jewellery, books, and plenty more.
After exploring the outdoor area, we head deep into the buildings to search for some records. There are a ton of galleries and studios where you can witness people painting, doing calligraphy, and even sculpting. The quiet 2nd floor shops are like something out of Gremlins. We manage to find some records and antique suitcase record players.
If you’re looking for a unique shopping experience in Chengdu, the Art and Antique Market is the place to go. After a couple hours of exploring, you might end up coming home with an eagle’s head (not recommended).

An example of the rarest type of the earliest phase of Navajo blankets, it emerged from obscurity when it was brought into Moran’s free appraisal clinic by a man whose family handed it down through the generations, casually using it around the house. The sale of this museum-quality treasure has dramatically changed his life, and made auction history.
