THE SECOND HAND BOOKSTORE

POLISH TITLE: ANTYKWARIAT

A second-hand bookstore  is most often associated with a peaceful visit, and a quite dictated by the old dusty books. This one in Warsaw, however, is entirely different. People come here not only for books, which can only be dug with difficulty out from the piles covering this small space. The customers are mainly regulars, considering the bookstore as a place to meet, chat and vent their troubles. The owner, Krzysztof watches everything over. Like a doctor, he seems to know what’s ailing whom, and what his customers need.
