in big china, it’s the little things we like



While the rain raged on in Beijing, delaying both the men’s and women’s final until Monday, we popped into the virtual China Open store for a glance and the goodies being offered up this year. It would be unjust to ignore what their store has to offer; while the clothing selection left something to be desired, there are a few diamonds of the fuzzy slash plastic slash “What is that, exactly?” variety. Just what we love…

This gorgeous and somewhat subtle (at least for the China Open online store… ) scarf has great detailing. If you look closely, you can see the tiny man chasing down a tennis ball. Buy for about $21 USD.

You may think it cheesy, but we love the top to this mug, which retails for about $8.

More of our picks from the China Open store after the cut…

While there were plenty of bracelets, key chains and necklaces to choose from, this was our favorite. The simple design of racquet and ball caught our eye, and we’re really enjoying the tone of green (also used in the coffee mug). Just under $15.

Another peek at the scarf. This time, with the China Open logo visible.
