Apparitions vintage village.
I love going to this store to find unique gifts and clothes. The owner is amazing and I would highly recommend stopping by Apparitions for antique goodies and head next door to Second & Main for some local goods!
The vintage clothes were perfect! I got a cute sleeveless dress at such a great price!
So cute! Would recommend if you are in the mood to do some small town shop snooping.

I discovered this business by chance while visiting Richmond Kentucky today. The shop has very nice antique items and was a pleasant experience. I especially enjoyed talking to the shop owner and am a fan of this quaint store with many interesting items to see. I am a fan of the curator style of interesting goods and clothing, vinyl records, and eclectic accessories. Bravo for a nice visit to my day!
Apparitions is filled with vintage and antique items to fit exactly what someone would be looking for. I met the store owner, Charlie, whom has a heart as warm and welcoming as the state in which you can find her. Definitely a 5 star visit. =]

The most fairy-tale houses of old Moscow (PHOTOS)
The Pertsova House
At the turn of the last century, Russia was gripped with a trend for reviving medieval Russian art and heritage sites. Artists and architects found a new appreciation for the uniqueness and artistic value of old Russian icons and architecture. They began to incorporate images and elements of Old Rus into their works, while at the same time re-imagining them. Medieval Russian art was the strongest influence on the Russian avant-garde. In architecture, the emergence of this Russian style (also referred to as the neo-Russian or pseudo-Russian style) was further bolstered by the lifting of strict regulations governing building design, as well as by several industrial exhibitions in Moscow, St. Petersburg and Paris that featured houses and interiors inspired by medieval Russian architecture. Subsequently, buildings and entire neighborhoods built according to these designs began to appear in many cities in Russia and beyond.
GUM and the Historical Museum
The Russian style consists of fashioning modern buildings on the wooden architecture of Slavic masters, sometimes deliberately exaggerating their most pronounced features. The most famous Russian style buildings in Moscow are the GUM department store in Red Square, the Yaroslavsky and Kazansky railway stations, and the Historical Museum in Manezhnaya Square. In addition, Moscow has preserved several unique mansions that look like they came right off the pages of a book of Russian folk tales.
1. The Lopatina Mansion, 1876
This house decorated with colorful mosaics is located in the very center of Moscow on Bolshaya Nikitskaya street. Before the Bolshevik Revolution, it belonged to Anna Lopatina, who ran a business that supplied seafood to Moscow. In addition to the owners' apartment, the building contained apartments that were rented out as well as warehouses and administrative offices on the ground floor.
The building was designed by architect Alexander Kaminsky, the son-in-law of Pavel Tretyakov, who founded the Tretyakov Gallery—which was also built in the Russian style. Kaminsky decorated its facade with an ornament made of small multi-colored bricks and ceramics resembling cross-stitch, while the design for its arched windows was borrowed from boyar chambers.
The third floor was added in the 1920s, when the mansion passed into the hands of the Soviet authorities and was turned into a residence hall. These days it houses the Brazilian Embassy.
2. The Tsvetkov House, 1899-1901
This small house on Prechistenskaya Embankment was commissioned by the art collector Ivan Tsvetkov. He was a devoted admirer of Russian art and planned this mansion as an art gallery, having hired artist Viktor Vasnetsov (author of The Bogatyrs and Alyonushka) to create its architectural design. The result was a house that was canonically “Russian” both from the outside and on the inside.

It features a domed roof above carved stone balconies, bright tiles on the lintels, rooms with massive censer-like chandeliers and wooden chest benches. The view from the house opened to the Krasny Oktyabr confectionery factory (which at the time was called Einem).
In 1909, Tsvetkov donated the house and his extensive collection of paintings (including more than 1,800 canvases and sculptures) to the city, while retaining the right to live in the house and rebuild the gallery. After his death in August 1917, the building was turned into an art museum and even served as a branch of the Tretyakov Gallery for some time.
In the 1930s, however, the collection was distributed among regional museums, while the house itself was converted into a residence hall. During the war, the building was home to the headquarters of the Normandie-Niemen Fighter Regiment. Currently, it is used as a foreign diplomatic residence.
3. The Pertsova House, 1905-1907
This fairy tale house on Prechistenskaya Embankment is one of the most striking buildings in Moscow. It was commissioned by a railroad engineer named Pyotr Pertsov, who registered the house in the name of his wife Zinaida. Pertsov became obsessed with the idea of building a mansion in the Russian style after visiting his friend Ivan Tsvetkov.
A plot of land was available nearby, and this is where Pertsov built his apartment building. A huge fan of Russian art, he planned to rent out apartments in the building to artists, writers and other members of the creative class at a very modest price. The house was designed by the architect Sergei Malyutin—designer of the famous Russian nesting doll—who deliberately included windows of different sizes and asymmetric facades. The attics housed workshops, and inside there were elevators and even a telephone.
The owners' apartment occupied four floors in a separate wing and was stylized as a Russian hut, complete with tiled stoves, carved oak furniture and stained-glass windows. The house became a popular meeting place for Moscow's art scene. There was a cabaret in the basement, and passers-by would often stop outside this mansion to admire the intricate details of its facade.
After the Bolshevik Revolution, the house was nationalized, and representatives of the new government moved in, including Leon Trotsky. Most of the original interior decoration has been lost over the years, but on the outside the building has changed very little. Since the 1970s, the mansion has been used by the Foreign Ministry.
4. The Igumnov House, 1888-1895
The owner of this mansion in Bolshaya Yakimanka street, Nikolai Igumnov, built it using old Russian chambers as an inspiration. Igumnov owned a gold mine and spent a million rubles on the building’s construction, which was an incredible amount at that time (the plot of land in the center of Moscow on which the house stands cost only about 17,000 rubles).
The building’s red bricks were ordered from the Netherlands, and each element of the façade—the windows, doors, balconies—has its own distinctive decor. The mosaic adorning the mansion depicts birds, flowers and plants from fairy tales. The building’s roof was made in different shapes.
In 1901, Igumnov left for Abkhazia and never returned to Moscow. After the revolution, he voluntarily handed over the property to the Soviet government. Nowadays, the building houses the residence of the French ambassador.
5. The Shchukin Mansion, 1893-1898
This huge house on Malaya Gruzinskaya street belonged to the merchant and philanthropist Pyotr Shchukin, who was an avid collector of Old Russian art. As his collection grew, he decided to build a separate building for it in the Russian style, which was fashionable at the time.
The main building had a wide porch decorated with a balcony (a smaller copy of the balcony of the Romanovs' chambers on Varvarka street) and multi-level pointed roofs. Inside, visitors found themselves in vaulted halls painted with floral designs. Several years later, another building was built next to the first one, also in the pseudo-Russian style but more spacious. Later, the two houses were connected by an underground passage.
In 1905, Shchukin donated his house to the Historical Museum but remained the curator of the collection until his death and even gave guided tours of the house himself. During the Soviet years, the building continued to be used as originally intended, exhibiting items from various museums. Today it houses the Timiryazev Biology Museum.

Top 7 Historical Places Around Moscow Only Locals Know About
Contributor / Journalist
The Moscow region is famous for its historical sights, and there are many important hidden gems only locals know about. Natural parks, beautiful estates and mansions, orthodox churches and monasteries, and surely small local museums dedicated to art and literature. More than five million local and foreign tourists visit these sights during the year, especially around national holidays. Here are the top seven hidden spots for you to discover.
The gzhel village.
The Gzhel Village, located in the region of Moscow, is a true historical gem of Russia and considered to be one of the most important folk craft centres of Russian culture. Only here you may see how the original porcelain gifts are produced, and you even have the opportunity to customise one for yourself.
The Losiny Ostrov National Park
The Arkhangelskoye Mansion
This huge historical mansion is located in the Moscow region, around 30 kilometres drive from the city. It’s famous for its outstanding classic architectural French style, and some people call it the ‘Versailles of Russia’ just because of its enormous art collection inside. Arkhangelskoye was one of the most outstanding country mansions of Romanov dynasty.

The Melikhovo Chekhov’s Estate
This place is located quite far from Moscow – it’s and 80 kilometre drive – however it’s very fast journey and easy accessible by bus or car. Everything here is about Anton Chekhov and his life; his old house and the garden, his cabinet full of books and interesting small sculptures he bought during his trips abroad, his desk where he used to write all his famous novels, and even some of his personal belongings. The atmosphere inside is so authentic that sometimes it feels like Chekhov is still here and just went outside to grab a coffee.
The Abramtsevo Estate and Colony
The Ambramtsevo Estate and Colony is considered to be one of the oldest art residences of famous Russian poets, writers, musicians, actors, and artists. It was a so-called ‘summer camp’ for them, mainly because of its beautiful landscape and architecture; many of its famous residents were overcome with inspiration right upon their arrival. Famous artists and writers who often visited include the artists Mikhail Vrubel, Valentin Serov, Konstantin Korovin, and Viktor Vasnetsov, and dramatist Nikolay Gogol.
The Trinity Lavra of St. Sergius Monastery
This monastery is one of the most important Russian Orthodox churches in the whole country and it’s an absolute must see for those who are interested in religion. The construction of the building is very beautiful and it attracts visitors from all over the world on a regular basis.
Located in the Moscow region, just a 50-kilometre drive from the capital, the city of Korolev is one of the oldest cities in Russia and is connected to the State Astronaut Centres. One of the biggest training centres in Eastern Europe is located here and it operates daily. You may visit a small museum near the centre and discover how the spacecrafts and machines work, and even try astronaut food and buy some as a souvenir. A must-see attraction if you visit Moscow.

Dinamo Sports Palace
10 Buildings from the 1980 Olympics and What Became of Them
Published: December 10, 2016
This list was originally compiled by Timeout.ru . Translation was provided by SRAS Home and Abroad Scholar Michael Filitis.
1. Cosmos Hotel
All these years, this building, situated next to VDNKh park, has operated according to its intended design. In 2004, it even celebrated a milestone: its 7 millionth visitor. It is impossible to not recall the hotel’s presence in Russian cinema: the curved shape of its façade in the films, Guest from the Future and Day Watch .
2. Olympic Village
Located in the southeast of Moscow, these multi-level residential buildings are where the Olympians were housed. They were constructed “with an eye towards the future.” The famous places that were located there in the 80s include the dance club Milk, a refuge for Moscow’s black marketeers, and the shopping gallery Lux—which initially could only be accessed by invitation. Today, apartments in these buildings are sold at average prices for resellers, and Lux—formerly known as “The Gallery of Dreams”—has become a standard shopping center.
3. Dinamo Sports Palace
During the Olympics, basketball tournaments were held in Dinamo, a typically gray Soviet-style building. Today, the sports palace specializes in volleyball. There are also areas for martial arts, table tennis, and other activities.
4. Other Sports Facilities
In addition to a canal for rowing, the Olympics built gyms, a cycling track, and a stadium for archery. Today, these facilities are used for training in tennis, squash, cycling, rowing, and light athletics.
5. Press Center (RIA Novosti Building – Rossiya Segodnya Building)
On Zubovsky Boulevard a building was constructed to function as the Olympic press center; four years later it became the home of the RIA Novosti news agency and the Journalist’s Union. Today it is still contains these organizations, although in December 2013, RIA Novosti was shuttered and replaced by the Russia Today news agency, which now operates the building.
6. Izmailovo Hotel
Izmailovo was listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s largest hotel complex at the time. Today, it is perhaps one of the largest hotels for business travelers. The five buildings on the complex can accommodate 10,000 guests, with differing accommodations—from the budget Gamma rooms to the very expensive Alpha rooms.
7. Bitsa Equestrian Complex
Bitsa is the largest equestrian complex in Europe and functions today as one of the “flagships” of equestrian sport in Moscow. There are regularly held competitions in dressage, jumping, and vaulting, as well as training sessions.
8. Sheremetovo 2
The foundation stone for this international airport terminal was laid on November 17, 1977 and its grand opening occurred shortly before the start of the Olympic games. Since then, for 15 years Sheremetovo 2 has remained the main “window abroad” for Muscovites. Several years ago, there was a large-scale restoration project that modernized the airport and merged it with Sheremetovo 1. The Sheremetovo 2 building is now called “Terminal F.”
9. Olympic Sports Complex
The Olympic Sports Complex continues to be indoor arena and an indoor pool. Today, both professional athletes and ordinary Muscovites train there and the complex holds competitions and a variety of other extreme sports spectacles. Olympic is also a popular concert venue, where Madonna, Lady Gaga, and Depeche Mode have all performed—in 2009 the Eurovision competition was staged there. The largest flea market in Moscow also brings consumers to Olympic for large discounts on textbooks, books, and brand-name clothing.
10. Wings of the Soviets
This sports palace was built for the Olympics by a on the order of a Soviet factory. It houses the hockey team Wings of the Soviets and functions as their training complex and as a venue for matches. However, the venue is not limited to hockey, as it also functions as a space for “disco-skating” and rock concerts.
