This is definetely the object I would like to buy, and old gramophone which still works. The price was around one thousand euros, but negotiale.
What to buy: The fleamarket offers lots of various stuff, I am sure you'll find something according to your preferences.
Visit Piazza San Zeno in autumn Sunday, there you'll find the huge open-air antiques market. People from the city of Verona and its surroundings, offering here various antiques, furniture, paintings, jewelry, etc.
Most of the exposed articles are of law artistic and commercial value, however, there are also the articles which deserve attention.
Just a little stall, with wrapped 'rocks', and a TV with videocassette playing...kind of like an info-commercial.
What to buy: They sold these 'rocks' to be used in place of deodorant. They are actually chunks of potassium crystal, which is natures natural anti-bacteria agent.
I had just read something about these rocks on the net, so they caught my eye. Normally I would have walked right by.
All you do is moisten the rock, and rub the damp surface in places you wish to be fresh and sweet.
IT WORKS....I couldn't believe it. I am so looking forward to proving it to all my friends.
What to pay: 5 Euro, for a chunk of rock. Remember, it really, really WORKS.
July 11/2005 - Have been using daily since my purchase, and am amazed at how well this 'ROCK' works. I am as fresh as a spring rain!!!
In the center of this small city there is a great fleamarket. They sell everything from clothes, to candles, to table settings.
It's all very cheap, unlike the rest of the the shops in the city.
The market is also close to a bunch of restaurants, so when you are tired from shopping you can grab a bite to eat.
What to buy: Anything
What to pay: Between 10 and 50 Euros
There's a few small market stalls in Piazza Erbe that sell everything from herb-flavoured roast suckling pig in bread rolls to clothes and accessories.
These souvenir stalls exploit fully the love story of Romeo and Juliet - plenty to buy, if you're a sucker for that story.
