I am so glad that shopping is not like that all over the place. Granted flea markets have a appeal for finding a good deal or a treasure not found in conventional stores. Thanks for the pictures…
If you go to any flea market or general community market and take some pictures in black and white the pics will look the same and you can put any suggestion about no money and people will believe it. Have a look at most of the people, they dont look like they are missing too many meals.

So poor they’re selling babies it seems. I think they were poor before the collapse too. I seem to remember bread lines. At least they weren’t eating the dead.
no, b4 USSR collapse (late 80′s early 90′s) ppl weren’t poor. after collapse they were.
normal countries with normal economies don’t collapse.
