There are a dozen reasons why this place (called A little shop of all kinds of things) is magical to me. It is located in my favorite district of Vilnius – Užupis. The shop smells wonderful. As soon as you open the heavy green door and enter the shop, you are surrounded by a sweet yet soft, southern aroma mixed with the smell of fresh coffee and chocolate. It is hospitable, because there you will always be offered a cup of coffee and a bite of chocolate. It is beautiful, because the things that you can buy in the shop are truly beautiful. It is significant, because all the things have their unique stories to tell.
By now you must be wondering what kind of things live in this shop. Like the name says – all kinds of things: vintage postcards, antique maps, smaller and bigger music boxes, hand crafted glass Christmas tree decorations, pieces of antique art, antique cash registers, handmade jewelry, toys, exquisite niche brand perfumes, such as Agonist, Krigler, Isabey, Carner Barcelona (and other names).
To be honest, this place is so magical it reminds me of a fairy tale. So I invite you to the fairy tale of beautiful things. And remember, do not condemn the desire to have beautiful things – this is contrary to nature (Seneca).
