Shanghai - shopping advise

I am arriving Shanghai @ 7:10am on a Sunday and then leaving at 1:30pm (same day) - do I have enough time to go town for some shopping - looking for bags mainly.

Any advice appreciated!

S&t museum is great, but only for genuine clones. If you are looking for the real deal or so something a little bit classier you'll have to go further into town. Couple more stops and you're at lujiazui, the super brand mall is just out of there

Reminds me of another scam..

Hooters girl at SBM picks up guy. Guy buys her an expensive bag at the mall.
Girl goes back next day and gets 90% cash back on the return.

Thx everyone.

Sounds like I will have enough time to make a run to S & T Museum markets.

For the real deal, almost everything is cheaper in our home countries.

That's true, why is the LV store at Beverly Center packed with Chinese tourists? For one, the price is cheaper, equally as important the products
are real.

Quite awhile ago an official Prada store at Pudong airport was closed as
it was discovered they were selling fakes.

China isn't a good place to purchase genuine brand luxury products if
you have the ability to buy elsewhere.
