Time is coming to an end....

I thought I might update this post with photos of what I have bought in Prague as I know you are all eager to hear about Paris!
As I have mentioned previously, there isn't a great deal in the way of clothing here in Prague, I've found one second hand shop but it's mainly 'recent' second hand stuff and nothing really vintage or pre- 1980.
So instead I have invested in literature and art which is a second love of mine and below are some images of some of the prints I have bought.
I fell in love with the lot you see above me. One observer pointed out 'Yeah, you can really see Prague from those photos!' and although they aren't of the scenery I think they perfectly capture the essence of the city and perhaps what Prague might have been like 100 years ago.

The famous brooch that so many of you have asked for a close up of! 90CZK which equals about $7AUS.





Beautiful shops like this called 'antikvariat' sell pre-Soviet memorabilia. I hate to use the word memorabilia as the shop was filled with the most incredible collection of prints, letters, stamps, postcards, posters, coasters, books, ex-libris and other snap shots of life in Czechoslovakia from the last 150 years. I spent over an hour in the shop fossicking through the piles and boxes of just incredible paper artefacts and you can see some of what I purchased here.
The shot below is the card from the shop if any of you are in or visiting Prague.




It is almost time for me to leave wonderful Prague but I am off to a wonderful part of the world...Paris!
