In Kiev, the Museum of unnecessary things

В Киеве появился музей ненужных вещейThe most sold product is coins, rare and old specimens numismatists do not skimp pay hundreds of hryvnia

In Kiev was opened the Museum of unnecessary things. Plaster busts and pedestals, coins, badges and flags of the era of socialist realism. With attics and the house of culture they migrated to the Antiques market.

Collected here are what has long been thrown into the dustbin. In one of the corners – busts of Lenin. A little further, covered with the dust of Soviet era flags and pennants. Shows the coordinator of the Museum Sergey Volkov and the first issue of the newspaper “Pravda”. Visitors rarely come here. But he did not despair. Plans within a year or two to turn this project into a commercial.

And while Sergei is thinking how to bring the concept to life, at the hem and sale of Lenin and Stalin. The owner of the outlets at the sight of reporters trying to hide the product under the embroidery. How much did not know.

The answer to this question can be found on the virtual Internet auction, where they sell Antiques. The symbols of the Soviet era – a lot. The most sold product is coins. Rare and old specimens numismatists do not skimp pay hundreds of USD. Popular and icons. Less purchase of flags, pennants and busts.

Among the buyers – antique and not only Ukrainians. Soviet subjects interested in Russians and Belarusians. At least – the inhabitants of Eastern Europe. Sometimes the artifacts of socialist realism buy Ukrainian immigrants who now live in Israel, USA and Canada.
