I could spend a lot of time in there & I bet find some real treasures. Russians used to come to Croatian coast in the '80s and bring all sorts of stuff to sell next to the open market to finance some of the vacation. My aunt spoke Russian (tought Russian in school) and bought & was given some things - some of which she then gave to me
Wow! He really has packed this small space! Fascinating!
Good! Another one of those little NYC treasures tucked into a neighborhood.
I love stores like this. I must go see this place on my next trip into Manhattan.Thanks Ken.
if i ever become an Old Alex, I'd love to own a store like this!
but where are 'matrioshkas' - I can't imagine any Russian Souvenirrs without them!
Sorry! I enlarged the last photo and they are there of course - ok. it is Russian place:)
Amazing things! Love "matryoshka doll" too.
Almost collage-like pictures this morning. Interesting to ponder.
Wonder who the two old parties are in the third picture.
Beautiful shots. Great little place.
Great looking little store stuffed with all things Russkie. Looks like it would be a great place to browse in.
This sure looks like a house of treasures!In the early 80s, Rome "Porta Portese" flea market was full of Russians trying to sell the few precious possessions they had managed to take out of the country. Some real bargains were to be had back then. I was too young too take part in the hunt. Too bad!
The samovar and the balalaika-playing bear on the sign are amusing, too. Great find, I wonder what you came home with?
Parties in the 3rd picture are: Fyodor Mikhaylovich Dostoyevsky, writer and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, musician
Do they still sell the faux Gorbachev birthmark?
I think everyone has a weird story about their experience with this guy and his shop, myself included. How he stays in business is a mystery...I get the feeling that one of these days, we'll find out he is the real heir of the czar. :)
Seems a fascinating shop. - Dave
THIS GUYS SHOP LOOKS LIKE GARBAGE COMPANY NYC OFFICE ON HIS ABOUT US PAGE WWW.DIMOLABROS.COM HE SELLS IT WE FIND IT AND SAVE WEIRD.
I wandered into this store today after I went to lunch. I would have never known the old mans name was Alex if I didn't look it up now, but I'm glad I did. When I went in the store it was very dark and I was the only person, besides Alex, inside the store. I looked around for a few seconds, and sort of looked at the man waiting for him to tell me his name or something about the store but he never did. (I think he was eating lunch before I came in) I hope that one day I do go back to this store and see the little old man once again and hear some stories about russia and mabye even buy some things to remember the store by. It will always be a mystery to me how he keeps up with the rent though.
