Original Message:   A couple more finds
I found these phenolic resin souvenirs bracelets (needing restringing) that were decorated with small emblems of German towns. Also a vintage (?) Japanese glass bead necklace. Both of these items were inexpensive, but most other purchases I made at this antique market were expensive. A few vendors with old Islamic prayer strands made of phenolic resin wanted what I thought were sky-high prices.

If you have the opportunity, I'd recommend spending a weekend at this market. Although fair warning, a lot of the jewelry is amber, coral and Bohemian garnet-based. But there is plenty to look at, including relics of the Soviet era. I had a very entertaining weekend there!
