One of the things I was most excited about going to China was locating a local Record Shop. Our shopping guide (how cool is that) had some difficulty finding one in Shanghai, however we were fortunate enough to locate one by chance after wandering into an underground “shopping” area that sold mostly knock off/stolen(?) goods. Side note, kind of pissed I didn’t buy the fake Givenchy Shark Sweater, but I was distracted upon finding this record shop and went running into the store. Upon entering, I was asked if I wanted Hip Hop or House music. When I replied neither, that I was looking for vintage Chinese music, all they said was “Why?” Luckily, after pulling out a rather small stack of records, I happened upon this beautiful Chinese Opera Album from the 60’s. Paired nicely with a bottle of…wine(?) that was quite a hit at the Halloween Party, these were two of my favorite items brought back from the trip.

Whiskey Advent Calendar

One of my favorite things about the holidays growing up was our old advent calendar. I loved the excitement of each day getting closer and closer to Christmas. Now you can relive that excitement in a more grown-up, gentlemanly manner with the Whiskey Advent Calendar. Behind each of the 24 doors is a different 1 oz sample of whisky. The contents of each are a surprise, however behind one of the doors is a sample of 50 year old Scotch whisky, the full-sized bottle of which is worth $550! December will be here before you know it, perhaps now would be a good time to get yourself a little something before the holiday’s are in full swing.

$245
