12.30.18: Stalin In The Silverware

As regular readers of this blog well know, there are few things we love more than a good flea market. Udelnaya, Russia’s biggest, certainly qualifies. But throw in a fresh snowfall, the Day-Before-New-Year’s-Eve shoppers searching for the perfect last-minute gift, steaming samovars, tasty lamb stew pirozhki, winter coats in every shape and color, communist-era Christmas tree ornaments galore, some seriously powerful pensioners, and Udelnaya goes from Good to A+++ Amazing!
