I am just back from a long weekend in Shanghai, China and before I went I 'googled' scrapbooking Shanghai. A great surprise there was an on-line store, Scrapbook Studio 1, so I emailled them. The reply also said she had a store that opened limited hours and yes she would be open between 2pm and 5pm Saturday. I caught a taxi out from my hotel, and of course I was early and whilst waiting for the shop to open, next door there was a fabulous French bakery/cafe that had only opened 2 days previously. The most magnificent Smoked Salmon Baguette and vanilla slice and I was welcomed as one of the family to the shop. Then time for the scrapbooking shop to open - Laura imports all the goods from USA (even those made in China) for the local market. I got a cutter and some great papers with Asian themes and a few other things. Here are some photographs of both shops and me eating, of course in the cafe. Good food and a papercrafting fix - what else does a girl need on a miserable wet Saturday.
