According to the archaeological evidence, Chinese pottery has enjoyed a long history of over 11,700 years. It may be the oldest artwork in the history of the human species.
Pottery is made by mixing clay and water, and then kneading the damp clay into a certain model, then airing and firing it in a kiln.
The picture shows heaps of potteries outside Sibu Trade & Exhibition Centre which is one of the latest roadshow centres.
Their usual tactic is to mark up high the tagged prices and stand prepared to haggle with prospective buyers.
To deal with them,I was told one has to hack the tagged orices by as much as 70%, and then go on bargain-hunting with the pedlars.
Honestly, I have never tried it out because I am a poor bargain-hunter. But from the sharings of some personal experiences, the deals could be lucrative, depending on how tough you are in negotiating.
