Q: What I can buy exactly in Yabaolu?

I heard that you can buy anything in the Beijing’s Russian town, but I only found a lot of four coats and winter clothes. I’m particularly interested in the Russian food (caviar and other kinds of fish, vodka and so on); also, I will like to know where I can get the classic Russian hats (Ushankas).

Yaobaolu, as you said, is mostly fur coats or leather jackets.
For russian food, try around the Russian embassy, 东直门外大街(dong zhi men wai da jie)and东直门北中街(dong zhi men bei dong jie), and for Russian hats... try Yashow, in sanlitun, they probably have those.

Please try the Russian-language equivalent to echinacities.com which is polusharie.com.  If you have Google Chrome, it will translate the pages automatically for you from Russian into English.  If you can read Russian, then all the better.

Here is the rubric devoted to buying and selling everything Russian in Beijing:

You can buy whatever they are selling. And as far as four coats goes I don't think they want to keep those four coats so you could buy them along with the winter clothes you speak of.
As far as vodka goes you could go to Walmart and pick that up.
The russian hats your looking for could be found in one of the silk markets but don't expect to get a real one if that's what you want.
If you want a real russian hat you might not be able to find one in china, beijing so it would be better to go head to russia to pick up your hat.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
