Whenever I ask the people of Warsaw about Pulawska and where to go, I usually get the answer that that street really doesn’t have so much to offer. In a way they are right, but turning on Dabrowskiego and going up heading to Raclawicka can be surprising with the number of small shops and bars that are opening there.
Since I moved to the district, one of my favorite spots has been “Reset”, a shop with items of mostly Polish design. Their prices are not the cheapest, but quality and originality are worth the price. The shop offers a wide range of different items: furniture, books, maps, pictures etc. You can find a present for yourself or for anyone here.
Their books are well made and funny (at least for Polish or English speakers), but it’s their ceramics that are the most beautiful in town. As far as I know, the ceramics industry in Poland used to give birth to very nice, typical, tradition-inspired motifs. The ceramics here are still inspired by tradition, but a little bit less obviously so for the traveller.
All in all, it’s worth the shop -oops- spot -oops- shot!
