porta di roma

Clearance sale






I arrived at the mall early this morning. Lots of space and quiet. The shops started lifting thier automated rolling shutters around 9:45 and it was a very unusual feeling to be virtually alone in that big open space. I took advantage of the 20 minutes I had before the store opened and grabbed some photos.
By 10:15 as the barbaric hordes were arriving, I pulled out of the parking lot with my 12 wine glasses and some pictures in my memory card.

  4. You could have bought more than wine glasses. When will there be another sale of this magnitude? Isn't a recession lowering all prices everywhere?

    Trillian~ infatti, era pieno di "occasioni"!

  7. I like it in the malls when there is space, little crowd and when not in a hurry. This must be a cool place Eleonora.

  9. Wonderful photo - and text. No reason to by 24 wineglasses when 12 is enough - let the barbaric hordes do it.
