Albanian Trip Communist Memorabilia Collection

We are pretty sure to be able to surprise you with our small but very interesting collection of books, calls for Marxist  literature competition, Canadian Communist Party publicity to travel Albania in the 80ies and hundreds of objects related to Communist (but not only) and Albanian life, stories and history. In case you DSC00181

are spending a bit of time in Tirana and have already visited or don’t have enough time to spend in a big museum like the National History one, drop us an email and come and visit our garden and our collection. This will add a lot of charm to your visit of Tirana. Wherever in the world you come from, we’re certain this is going to be interesting. We’re showing here some facts and elements from the part that most Albanians are not aware – a good part of the objects we’re illustrating the story with have been thrown away (mainly by young modern brides) and replaced with cheap post Communist elements – we’re not nostalgic but we’ve been good at preserving and we’re certainly good at telling! So do come and visit us also to try the Raki we do with the grapes of the garden next door and why not a fantastic Turkish coffee that will help you stay awake for the rest of the day! Since we’re not very fancy and business minded yet (but it has started to happen) when it comes to our collection, we will not charge but will be happy to let you put a little contribution to the maintenance and hopefully the expanding of our collection in the future too.
