Shopping in Porta Portese

March 9, 2008 at 8:06 pm 2 comments

See that on the right side? That’s a gramophone. You can get ANYTHING at Rome’s massive Porta Portese market on Sundays. Anything I’ve seen for sale in this city can be found cheaper at the market. The majority of what’s for sale seems to be used clothing, and many of the stalls, filled with piles of clothes from who knows where or when, smell like Goodwill. Some more pictures of the surprising things you can find below the jump.

Don’t you feel like you were there this morning?
