Hi!

Could someone please help us to find the best flea markets or second hand shops in Moscow. We are mainly interested in old furniture, that doesn't seem to be so appreciated in Russia (yet). So, hopefully it's possible to make some good deals. Thanks!

I am afrid, it was popular in USSR, but now there are too much choices of new furniture with the lowest prices....

My be there are some shops, but I think, it is just not profitable to own such kind of business.

It is out of question, there are some shops of "antique" fruniture (by antique, we mean old (of the the beginning of the 20th century, the 19th) and expensive for those who are fond of it indeed.

Just one example of the store (their site), I used once where I bought some item for my friend's new appartment.

Good luck getting out of Russia.

Careful if you buy something you may not be able to take it home.
