My Bailing Miao friend has asked me to see if there is any interest in some pieces he has collected. He no longer has any big buyer connections in Kaili and assumes that he will lose out if he uses a local dealer with connections in Beijing or Shanghai. All prices are purely his prices, I’m simply helping a friend in need. I have to say that I have not seen any of these pices and can in no way vouch for their quality.

1. Bazhai Miao man’s jacket: comparatively rare compared to the women’s jackets. From a comparatively rich family. Danzhai county, Pai Diao Township, WuQi zhai (village).

2. Bazhai Miao woma's jacket: From the same family as the man's jacket above.

3. Door hanging: Duyun, Jichang (a Bailing Miao village). The 60+ years old seller said his family used to be the local rich family. They were better educated than other local families and would be consulted by others for advice and also to write documents. He said his father and grandfather both used to hang this textile over the door to their study. Note the pot full of writing pens (brushes). The blue flowers around the left and right sides are embroidered using pearl stitch.

4. Skirt 1: Sandu county, Gailai cun. The seller said the family was comparatively rich, having a lot of land. The skirt has been knocked about and looks like it's been machine stitched to hold it all together!

5. Skirt 2: Duyun, Jichang. The seller said that during the cultural revolution, another rich family gave this skirt to his family to look after and hide from the craziness and destruction. Since then, no-one has come back to them to reclaim the piece, so he is willing to sell it.
