Double Happiness

This is a very cool store that I like very much in Hong Kong. I found a magazine article featuring this store. It is named "Double Happiness" which is the character used for good luck and wishes in Chinese Weddings. There is a story of how this tradition came to be - if you're interested, you can read the short story here. Enjoy the photos of this very asian-centric store, small store.

Goldfish are also lucky to the chinese.


You can see the "Double Happiness" Character everywhere in this store.



I really like the way these black and white photos of old Chinese movie stars are taped up on this armoire.


A bit eclectic with a Morroccan tea table, fur rug, and Chinese slippers.

Thanks for the comments girls, as always they are appreciated! Tea tables are great! I love them too.

I actually only remember that it is in Sheung Wan but not much beyond that :( Sorry about that.
