Cheap berimbau bag in Shanghai

UPDATE (January 8, 2012): Location corrections and changes.

If you want to get a simple, stylish and cheap bag for your berimbau (Diego, Macaquinho and I already have one), with a special section for the cabaça, you can have it made to order in a Chinese market’s stall (baazaar) located in Lanxi lu (near Caoyang lu). It’s just 25 yuan !

Address: CaoYang TieLu NongMao ShiChang, Lanxi lu 55 (near Caoyang lu). Caoyang Lu metro station.
曹杨铁路农贸市场, 兰溪路55号 (近曹杨路), 曹杨路地铁张.
See updated information here.

Map: GoogleMaps, or eDuShi (3d map)

You can go there by metro, line 3, CaoYang lu station, exit no.3.

Even if you can speak neither Mandarin nor Shanghainese, I have put a picture of the bag on the shop’s wall, so you can just point at it and A-yi will make it for you.

You can also call A-yi (6210696) or her son (15921716705) on the phone to order in Mandarin or Shanghainese.

Thanks Requebra for the help

  1. Opa,
    Thanks for the map Chupa teta it was very useful, one tip: the number is not 55 but 47 on LanXi Lu, it’s opposite of the street. You enter the baazar and at first it’s only food. Go a little further to the number 50 and there you are !

    My Berimbau is a bit bigger than expected so my bag is too short, if anyone interested in, tell me it’s only 25 RMB and so I can ask her to make a new one. Otherwise I’ll try to ask her to enlarge the bag a bit (with Chupa Teta’s help of course)
