Meet your activity leader: Molly
My name is Molly Jane, and I'm a Russian Studies Master's student in St. Petersburg, Russia. I'm originally from Los Angeles, California, but I received my undergraduate degree in Russian Literature, and so couldn't wait to move to St. Petersburg as soon as possible after graduation. I've been in Petersburg for about two years now, studying and doing freelance translation work on the side. During any of my tours, feel free to talk to me about Russian literature or my favorite research subject, the Russian detective novel. Like most people write in their bios, I love to travel (who doesn't), and I just spent the last 3 ½ months living in Kazakhstan and working at the World Fair. I'm sure we will not lack for things to talk about!
What to expect
If you're interested in a clothing shopping tour of St. Petersburg, we can work together to hit all of the stores that fit your interests. The places that I will take you are not noted in any guide or website in English: these are places that I have collected from Russian friends over two years of living here and loving to shop.
In terms of price, the cheaper vintage stores will have goods for about 300-1000 rubles (around $5-17). The higher end vintage stores can have a range of prices, and the Russian designer stores as well. For example, a Sputnik 1985 streetwear shirt would cost around $30.
