For savvy shoppers, RMB 100 (or USD 15) may not be sufficient to purchase Christmas decorations.
But in China, anything is possible. I decided to check out a small commodity market, where most things are way cheaper than those found in supermarkets like Walmart, in central Beijing prior to Christmas Eve.
Walking down narrow aisles flanked by congested stores, I finally spotted a store selling Christmas decorations, alongside daily necessities and stationery.
Here’s what I got for RMB 100:
1.5-meter (five-foot tall) man-made tree, 60 RMB
Two Snowflakes, 15 RMB
Santa Claus sticker, 10 RMB
Christmas decoration time!
Put up the tree, place ornaments, and use a snowflake as a tree topper!
I used a snowflake and the Santa Claus sticker.
Merry Christmas, everyone!
