Tianzifang (田子坊) is a touristic arts and crafts enclave that has developed from a renovated traditional residential area in the French Concession area of Shanghai, China.

Oyvind and the ChopMaker. He ordered a custom carved seal using his name. Chops are traditional Chinese seals use as signed signatures.

My mother used to have one with the foot pedal.

 It said "for the service of the citizen". I almost bought one.

Many alley ways inside...shoppers’ paradise.
