Skip your trip to weekend trip to Ikea to stock up on Christmas decor – we've found a one-stop-shop(s) for adding that yuletide spirit for your home! Tucked around the corner of Liangmaqiao Lu is the Liangma International Flower Arts Market, a long strip of indoor shops selling flowers and, this season, holiday decorations as well. Two shops in particular (shops 47 and H56, practically next to each other) have stocked a nice collection of Christmas decorations. Here's what to expect if you head down...

You'll find a bounty of Christmas trees.
