... Square for Sunday and headed to Silk Street Market. Oh boy! Some silk material is sold here but anything Made In China is found at this market for a song. The building is about 6 floors and there is a basement. The layout is made easy for the shopper -- women's on level 3 and 4 for example. The jewelry floors are unbelievable.
