Irresistible that's one enticing little shop I wouldn't be able to pass up.

Betchai: This was taken during my trip to Beijing in 2009. If you happen to be in the neighborhood someday, it's located in the same area as the Temple of Heaven.

Sukhmandir Kaur: It looks like it has almost everything you need as a tourist.

I've been to the Temple of Heaven in Beijing!
The particular ornate stonework and the little shop are both common sites there.

Love the assortment of colour of the merchandise and with the traditional looking setting. :)

A compact "7-11" in Bejing..

London Is Cool said...

The shop maybe be tiny, but it offers a wide variety of stuff. I wonder if it is like the shops in tourist areas in London, which are notoriously expensive?

Excellent photo love the old shop and the colour :-)

thanks for stopping by and a happy WW! to you

Life Ramblings said...

such shops are everywhere in China, especially in tourist areas.

Carol @ There's Always Thyme to Cook said...

Great shot! A little shop with everything it seems.

tracy said...

what are the displays on the right hand side of the photo? lottery tickets?

Ryan said...

That shop wouldn't last 2 minutes here, shoplifters would have a field day.

AVCr8teur said...

Catsynth: Then you must've stopped by this kiosk for a look.

Lina: It's amazing some of the moden stuff it had next to this historical site.

Louis: Funny, it didn't occur to me that it is like an outdoor 7-Eleven.

London: You can probably bargain with the shopkeeper, but probably not so in London.

Stevebethere: Thanks! I guess it kind of blends into the same color as the historical buildings in the background.

LifeRamblings: And they all offer cheesy touristy stuff.

Carol: And, if it doesn't have it, another similar shop might.

Tracy: Some look like key chains. I think they are sample photos of costumes you can wear to have your photo taken and put on a key chain? It's just a guess. The outfits behind the A-frame boards are ones you can try on.

Ryan: Scotland sounds like a rough place. :)
