Crossing the threshold

At the wise prodding of readers like Australian Ann, today I actually entered the Iran Bazaar that I showed the outside of yesterday. Many fascinating old things inside, and even archaeological antiquities!
The proprietors fit right in. They were friendly and let me roam and gaze and take pictures.


Just for fun, you can view this post while hearing "In a Persian Market."

These are wonderful items, Dina. Would love to buy one those antique lampshades/cases (?).

Hi Dina! With a 48h day I would have time to enjoy your blog more often; shame on the time controller… ;))
Beautiful posts as always!
Meanwhile Blogtrotter will be departing Tunisia 2007 soon, but managed to keep the delay in posting on twelve (12) months only. Great achievement… ;))
Enjoy and have a great weekend!

That's wonderful. I know all of those things, one by one. You can find lots of them in any Iranian antique market. You were in a "REAL" Iranian bazaar. Thank you Dina so much.
