Provincial Souvenir Stores

Hi CHers,

I can't for the life of me recount what they are called in Chinese, but I wonder if anyone knows the term for provincial products stores dotted throughout China. For example, I've seen shops specific to Xinjiang, Hunan and Sichuan, to name a few, and believe part of the title would be 新疆特色 or 湖南省纪念品.

If anyone is also familiar with Japan, in that country the prefectural equivalents are called "antenna shops."
