Life trully is beautiful, a person just needs to find itself and joy.
I've known Nataša Sarađen for many years now. She is a true darling, wonderful woman, so much polite and always with a smile on her face. She sparkles like she was brought to this world to make people happy and to pull out the best from each and every one of us. All of us have a lot of kindness and love in ourselves and we just need to let it out.
Anyhow, I accidentally ran into Nataša in the centre of Zagreb. We started talking and she told me her husband holds a small antique shop in Tkalčićeva street. Also, he is a photographer. Nataša suggested he could take pictures of me in his shop.
What a wonderful gesture - I thought to myself. I couldn't believe my luck.
So Nataša and I decided to get some coffee near her husbands shop.
I was wearing my favourite, you may guess, avantgarde clothes and my "crazy" haircut so I was a little worried will I fit in the antique store ambient. Did I succeed, well that's something you'll see when you look at my new blog photos.
Sarađen - Small antiques shop in Tkalčićeva 29 is a beautifull small store looking like it came out from a fairytale. It's filled with beautiful stuff, a place where all the antique lovers and one yet to become can really enjoy.
There are a lot of different clocks, sunglasses, doctors bags, womans purses, flutes, phones, interesting boots, old photos... everything you can imagine. Place that makes you feel like you're back in 1930s where you also want to stay. It made me feel like no panic or rush exsists, it felt like place when phones don't buzz all the time and a place where everything is somehow calm, peaceful and easy.
-No, I don't want to go out in city's rush, I just want to stay here and relax - I was thinking to myself while my dear host, owner of the shop Radomir Sarađen, was telling me the history of every little beautiful stuff in that shop.
His stories were incredible and the way he passionatelly talked about his job was a really treat to hear nowadays.
Even though I loved the shop, we had to get out in Tkalčićeva to begin the photoshooting. Radomir was extremly professional, hardworking and devoted, it was all so really nice.
When we finished the shooting, Radomir went back to his peace oasis while Nataša and I continued to drink coffee in noisy Tkalčićeva street, trying to ignore the crowd.
It was really a special experience for me, a lovely day and a lovely shop. Don't pass by it, make sure you go in there and believe me, you'll have a beautiful time.
