[08/12/16]   Here is the interview about my Jasmine Giftshop, done by Portlandtribune.com:

Chinese hacky sacks and other games

At “Jasmine Giftshop,” Lucy Li shares the games and toys — as well as the memories — of her childhood. She sells everything from eight-cornered twirling handkerchiefs to traditional women’s shoes embroidered with China’s national flower.

But one of her top sellers is a Chinese hacky sack called a jianzi.

Growing up in the Guangxi region of Southern China in the 1980s and 90s, Li and her classmates didn’t have many entertainment options.

So at recess or after school, they’d pass the time by playing jianzi. They’d make their own hacky sacks, decorating them with chicken feathers or leaves.

They could play alone, or in circles with others. Players use the inside, outside or back of their foot to keep the hacky sack off the ground.

When she was a teenager, Li could reach up to 100 kicks.

“This was the main form of exercise for my generation,” said Li. “It teaches balance and concentration.”

Li has lived in the United States for six years. Through her business, she’s hoping to help struggling artisans from villages across China by giving their crafts an international audience.

She shares embroidered table runners hand-crafted in the Sanjiang village, two hours from her hometown, by elderly women with nimble fingers. Their handicrafts don’t make them a lot of money, so Li hopes to help them out by selling their works in Beaverton.

“It’s our heritage,” said Li. “We have to continue or it will disappear.”
