Paul and Daul Frank for Sale

To get back into things after an unexpected "blogging holiday", I'll start with a simple post and share a few photos which include a famous monkey and touch on the variety of shopping venues and large number of imitation products in China.

At the previously featured Kaifu Wanda Plaza in Changsha, Hunan province, I noticed this Paul Frank store:

About a 10-15 minute walk away, I saw this outdoor temporary outlet near a construction area:

Two salespeople claimed the items for sale were genuine Paul Frank.

And finally, I earlier saw what be called a sign of creativity for sale at a bus stop near a shopping district in Zhuhai, Guangdong province:

That very well could be a genuine Daul frank.

I'll refrain from making any deep points and simply say that none of the above struck me as unusual for China.

More later ...
