Souvenirs on East 14th Street with owner Alex Bogatyr in the doorway.

This shop had an interesting selection of Russian 🇷🇺 souvenirs, including military hats, pins and medals 🎖, a collection of Russian nesting dolls as well as music, fabrics, framed photos and postcards. It seemed like its window display remained unchanged for years and the interior was equally clutter-filled with Russian bric-a-bric from floor to ceiling. Sadly this shop closed in 2015 after a rent increase and the space was initially occupied by a coffee shop which also now has closed and (if memory serves us correctly) is currently occupied by a bubble tea place.
