Russian gifts

After visiting Russian gift shops one can make some list of the weird items that can be purchased there. Our list would start with a purse. The sign on it reads “Anti-vandal purse, capacity is $10,000″

Let’s see what’s more there.

Going to number two. That’s an ashtray, made in a form of miniature Russian firefighting stand. Such stands were a must in Soviet times in any Russian building. They included sand and some tools, and this inventory is repeated here too.

    hate this fact that when you start learning cyrillic letters, you notice it is understandable.

    tiesittekö muuten jannut, että suurin maksullisten naisten ryhmä ennen kommunismia Pietarissa olivat suomalaiset? siinä teille ryssittelyä.

    Interesting, the maximum amount of cash one may transport out of the USA without informing the authorities is…US$10,000.

    It’s *perfect* :-)

  8. Gerry says:

    Is it possible to buy these items through internet?

  9. Chamie says:

    Have seen all of ‘em in St.Petersburg (Rus) on Nevskiy ave. They own a stand just next to Art.Lebedev store here.

    I’d definitely like the counting ashtray. Though I’m giving up smoking in 3 weeks…..

  11. mallchin says:

    Cool list, but I had a WTF moment when I read this:

    “Who are you now they left it to figure out by for you by yourself.”

    Dude, seriously, read back what you write.

  12. Aris says:

    The ashtray’s counter is not from the MIG plane! It is mechanic counter used on velo-bikes. It was mounted right beside the center of a wheel so that once every turn of the wheel a special mini-arm mounted on the spokes hit the counter mechanism to count one. Then a reasonable skill in maths was needed to calculate the distance, of course.

  13. Kol says:

    Reminds me of some of the marvelous thinks we’ve found when traveling in Russia’s Altai Republic.

  14. name says:

    You counted number ten twice:) So you have 15, not 14 items in total.
