Searching for Soviet oddities in Kharkiv’s market (bazaar)

On Saturday we visited Kharkiv’s outdoor marketplace (flea market) that happens every weekend at Rohatyns’kyi Ln, 19, Kharkiv . People from across the region come to sell everything from old household ware (plates, kitchenware, pots and pans) to scrap metal, bicycles, car parts, fishing gear, knives, USSR remnants, antiques and everything in between.
