15 Dushanbe Flea Market: Hello From the Soviet Past

Dushanbe Flea Market: Hello From the Soviet Past

Posted on August 8, 2011 by kulichik

Welcome to the flea market in Dushanbe. It seems you get to the Soviet past once you come here and it looks strange that things you would certainly throw out are sold and even maybe bought by somebody… However real pearls can be found among a huge variety of useless things. What would you buy?

Mind that 1 TJS is equal to 0.212 USD.

This table says that the cactus has a valuable property of protecting one’s eyes while working by a computer.

Covers of different sizes and colors are very popular here.

This dog can also be bought.

    Some of these spots look like a homeless guy’s shopping cart tipped over.

    What a bunch of garbage. We live in a disposable world now and this is a relic if life 50 years ago.

    The sad part, is people in the USA with cell phones, cars, microwave ovens, computers, big screen TV’s etc… call themselves “poor.”

    They have lost the meaning of “poor.”

    After recent economic troubles, this bazaar may be coming to a street near you.

    There are flea markets in different countries all over the World. I really don’t know what the big deal is, is this supposed to be shameful to buy used things?

    I’ve bought a lot of new and used books at flea markets and thrift stores. I have a large collection of copper food moulds, two copper tea kettles, several silver trays and misc wrought iron hooks and holders. This is all stuff I will probably resale on ebay at sometime. So yes, if I found something I thought was worth something to me, I would buy it. Those metal grinders/food mills cost a lot here new, so that might be something I would buy. There is a demand for manual clothes wringers too. New ones can go for close up to $200.00 usd. but I don’t see any here.

    This is all garbage I would not want for free but I would like to buy the pup and give the little guy a better life here in England.

    A. Bunka here. The open market in Tbilisi was pretty cool. You could build a Volga from scratch with used parts from there.

    This is MacGyver’s paradise. I love flea markets, so many small useful things to find that you just don’t get in stores, and often dirt-cheap. Also, the dog is extremely cute and looks very friendly!
