8. Dragon and Tiger balm (龙虎牌清凉油)
This is a great product to know before the worst of summer arrives. It’s the local answer to Metholatum, but with a TCM twist. Apply it on your mosquito bites to kill the itchiness or around your temples to relieve headache. Price for one is only RMB 2.9 in Shanghai pharmacies.
Find it: Shanghai No. 1 Dispensary, 616 Nanjing Dong Lu, near Fujian Zhong Lu 南京东路616号上海第一医药商店, 近福建中路

Shanghai traditional brands: Fashion
9. Kaka Cashmere (开开羊毛衫)
This is one of the best cashmere clothing brands the city has to offer. Its original shop at the intersection of Nanjing Xi Lu and Shimen Yi Lu made the area a landmark for local fashionistas in the 1980s and 1990s. People from around China packed onto the overpass bridge (taken down around 1995) that led to the door of this cashmere mecca. The store was relocated to Shaanxi Bei Lu late last year. Today the same crowds (albeit a bit older now), still come to the store.
Find it: 95 Shaanxi Bei Lu 陕西北路95号

10. Bo Bu male shoes and Lan Tang female shoes  (博步男鞋、蓝棠女鞋)
Founded in 1945 and 1948, these two shoe brands were once the Ferragamo of China, specializing in high-quality casual footwear, dress shoes and even made-to-measure kicks. Lan Tang was even crowned the “Queen of Women's Shoes” in China. Fortunately, their models nowadays aren't only for your parents’ fashion taste. Lan Tang has stylish flats that are hard to resist.
Where to find: 966 Nanjing Xi Lu, near Maoming Bei Lu 南京西路966号, 近茂名北路(Bo Bu Shoes); 1169 Shaanxi Bei Lu, near Shaanxi Bei Lu 南京西路1169号, 近陕西北路(Lan Tang Shoes)

It is hard to find Chocolate milk mix (梁丰牌 麦乳精).
Two years ago,when I went to Shanghai restaurant named "Ling",I was excited to find that
Chocolate milk mix (梁丰牌 麦乳精) was offered.  I ordered it at once.
But last I was so disappointed to find that it was not 麦乳精,but "Gaolegao".
Till now ,麦乳精 has not be found again.

I've bought "HuDie" (butterfly) Set Square many many years before.
It is much better than "DeLi" (Ningbo, Zhejiang province) and other brands. Sometimes, "DeLi" Set Square has 0.5mm dimension offest. Of course, a few of 0.5 mm dimension offests together would lead to a fatal error.
