A Splash of China in Tel Aviv

We encounter a lot of things that are made in China these days, but in this store you’ll find things that are really Chinese. There’s something to be said for Chinese decor. It’s kitsch, yes, and I really love it. It’s always colorful and somewhat dainty.

There’s a store near Nahalat Binyamin, in an alley that connects between Nahalat Binyamin and the Carmel market where you will find this store… which has no name at the moment. It’s the China store.

I loved the teapots! I can’t choose which one I’d like to have most.

I ching charms will always add color to your apartment as well as luck.

These floating lotuses are fantastic. You can float them in a bowl of water on the dinner table. I think they are really pretty and they’re reusable, of course.

They also have these amazing screens with all sorts of designs. I have a thing for screens, they’re so romantic.

You can’t say that the Chinese aren’t a colorful bunch. At this store, they also sell the regular lucky cat, paper lanterns and vases and stuff like that, but these are things I thought were special.

  1. Mimi, I agree that Chinese decor can be gaudy, but as you say if you separate the items they can be really beautiful. It’s not Zen, that’s for sure.

  2. Thanks for taking such nice pics in our shop. We have lots of other stuff too. People may like to know that we are at Hashomer 8a, telephone: 03 516 1559, and that we speak English! If we’re not in, we’ll call you back.
