There’s a shop across the street from us that has some very sleek antiques – turn of the century and at not so modest prices. We’ve been living here for nearly two and a half years and from what I can tell, they’ve never sold anything. This could be because I’ve never actually seen a sales person in there – or frankly, a door for that matter. And in keeping with other mid to high range establishments of Vienna, selling things does not seem to be a priority. Only displaying inaccessible things.
However a few weeks ago, we did notice that while there are still no outgoing pieces, a new incoming specimen did appear in the window. I’m half hoping that several years down the road, when we come back for a visit, that these gambs will still be here to greet us.
