DCCC and Beijing Postcards: Dashilan and Authentic Christmas Shopping

The DCCC is happy to once again invite members and friends to join us for a talk with Lars Ulrik from Beijing Postcards in his space in Dashilan. Since Christmas is sneaking up on us, mulled wine and snacks will be served, and there will be plenty of opportunities to find unique and authentic Christmas gifts in the area of Dashilan. Sign up here!

For hundreds of years the area of Dashilan was were you looked for inspiration. Tea, silk, lanterns, jade, porcelain and everything imaginable under heaven were traded here, where long drawn camel trains would bring in specialties from the provinces and the most exotic foreign goods. Today the area is part of “the Dashilan Project", which is an initiative that seeks to preserve the unique architecture of Dashilan and give the neighborhood new life by creating a platform for specialized boutique stores.

We will start off this cozy afternoon with hot mulled wine in the Beijing Postcards Public History Space, where we will hear about the history of the old shop fronts of the area told by Lars Ulrik from Beijing Postcards. Then we will visit some of themany shops and other projects in which we will meet both designers, long time residents, old brushmakers and much much more.This is your chance to find authentic souvenirs and unique Christmas gifts.
