  Stall in Krakowskie Przedmiescie
by evaanna

The stall in the picture is one of a few in the Old Town area. It is situated in the arcade of the house where Maria Curie-Sklodowska conducted her research and there is a plaque to commemorate this. The stall itself offers Polish folk costumes, scarves, dolls dressed in folk dresses, amber jewelry and all kinds of gifts. Look at the folk costumes of the Cracow area - my sister and I had such costumes when we were children. It didn't matter that we had never even been to Cracow then. They were symbolic of Poland and were worn for church processions, which we attended with our grandmother.

What to buy: Dolls in folk costumes, brightly-coloured scarves, other gifts
