Our Russian Souvenirs Bazaar will give you the opportunity to add a little ‘piece’ of Russia to your home. Stop by the Russian Cultural Center to view and purchase pieces from our exhibition of traditional Russian handicrafts and souvenirs, such as:

  • hand-painted Orthodox wood icons painted by artist Lyudmila Babaeva
  • “Matryoshka” nesting dolls in many colors, styles, and sizes
  • traditional paper-mache lacquer boxes, intricately painted with scenes from Russian fairy tales
  • paintings and sculptures of Russian artists in the U.S. and Russia
  • wooden toys carved using centuries-old techniques
  • porcelain and china from the Imperial Lomonosov factory in St. Petersburg
  • a large variety of blue and white “gzhel” pottery, kitchenware, and figurines (Gzhel is a famous style of Russian pottery dating back from the 18th century)
  • large hand-carved and painted Russian Santa Clauses, or “Father Frost”
  • wooden figurines and cookware painted in the famous Khokloma style (painted with red, gold, and black paints and dating back to the 17th century)
