Q: Where would you take someone who is in Łódź for the first time?
A: I always take friends on a tour of my favourite second-hand and antique store – in my opinion, the proportion of low price in relation to the number and possibility of finding real treasures is unprecedented, on a European scale. I buy not only clothes, but also old frames for my graphics, books and intriguing toys from the previous era.
