Forum rules
1) Please search before posting. Note that you should also search content-relevant forums (like Food & Drink for those items, and not just WCIF). If there is a content-relevant forum, the thread should be there, not here.

2) Please append your request to an existing thread if you find a stale one, rather than starting a new one.

3) Please post separately for each search item, not one thread for "olives and sour cream". Two threads, one for each. This makes it much easier for the moderator to merge your thread with an existing one, if any.

Of course, if you still can't find what you're looking for, please do feel free to post, and we'll do our very best to help you find what you need. If you have any trouble using the search function or the forum, please don't hesitate to send a PM (private message) to the Where Can I find...? moderator (right now, that's me, Dragonbones) asking for help. Happy posting!

A good ceramics store in Taipei?

I'd like to get a few nice tea mugs or the like as gifts, but I'm hoping to avoid having to go all the way out to Yingge for them.

These should be handmade (in Taiwan), nicely crafted items with at least a bit of personality ... and not cost as much as a used car.

Any suggestions?

It's been a few years since I visited, but there should be an artists /craftsman market next to the Jianguo flower market that does stuff like that.

These users gave kudos to the author cfimages for the post:

The ex Handicraft Market, now National Cultural Gift Center, has you covered:

I got some new «thermos» like exquisite ceramic bottles there, great gifts. Also an ample variety of mugs and cups and ornaments, all at reasonable prices.
