There were street stalls set up along Nowomiejska street, opposite to milk bar (Bar Pod Barbakanem). Hmm... I saw there unbelievable kitchy, fluffy, monkey-like mascots holding Polish national flag which provoked me to think over balance between protection for the image of the national flag and free market with human right to have a choice and own taste.

What to buy: I also saw pretty Warsaw postcards, travel books on Warsaw (in English, French and German) and some small gifts sold there (open my next pictures). I know one VT-er who collects dolls dressed in local costumes and buys them in each country she visits. The dolls on my picture were waiting for her :-). Well, excuse, maybe the dolls were made in China...

What to pay: Average Warsaw (high as for Poland) prices. Some 40 zl (10.5 euros) per doll.
