Taichung Jade Market

A weekend in Taichung with little on the agenda meant I had time to explore some parts of the city that I had not yet seen. Including the Jade Market.
Sitting along Taichung's DaDun 20th street and next to a Mercedes Benz/Smart dealer, the market is set up with dozens of vendors hawking their wares.
Jade jewelry:
Other ornamental stone carvings:
Dangly things (sorry, I don't know what they're really called):
Teapots and more:
Old-school calculators:
Guy plucking at a string instrument:
And Buddah:
It's too bad that I am not really in to Eastern/Chinese art. Otherwise I could have spent a small fortune there.
