several days while we were in Hong Kong that there weren't any Jackie
events planned. On one of those days, we took a trip to Hollywood Road.
There are many, many antique shops on Hollywood Road. The first shop we
walked into was very fancy. There were three floors in the shop. As we
walked from floor to floor looking at things, one of the employees followed
us, I suppose to make sure someone was there in case we had any questions.
Most of the items for sale were very expensive. I wish we had taken some
pictures in that shop. There were plates and furniture and many things
that were hundreds of years old. I really, really wanted a gorgeous plate
with a dragon on it. It was expensive, though, and I was worried about
getting it home safely. Kath, being an artist, was interested in the paintings
and prints. They were all lovely. Nic looked for swords and Stephanie
looked for Buddhas. Not being a real collector, Mark looked at everything.
It was neat to look at all the things in the shop, but I was afraid I
was going to break something. We all made sure we walked slowly and carefully.
After looking at all three levels of antiques, we thanked the people in
the store and went back out onto the sidewalk to continue our search for
The Hollywood Road antique shop owners in front of their store.
