Old Shanghai is also a good place to buy shams for throw pillows - they seem to have the most unusual and high-quality assortment in Chinatown, as even salespeople in other stores have commented on shams I purchased at Old Shanghai! I bought beautiful 14" double-sided silk shams for $14 each that feature traditional Chinese themes. Ceramics, chopsticks, silk purses and cases, Chinese boxes, jewelry and furniture are also available at Old Shanghai. I can't get enough of this place! I am glad we don't have anything comparable in New York - I'd be broke!
