Toothpaste tanks. Slipper birds. Flowers made from bras. Welcome to the world of Chinese retail, where in-store displays can get wonderfully creative.

In the West, there have been a number of impressive soda can displays—and China has seen those, too. But it's also seen suits of armor made from pots and pans as well as mats and rugs.

Not every hypermarket or grocery store does this kind of displays, but the ones that do are certainly delightful.
