But you seldom find it today being sold- there are also a variety of century old cookies, cakes and other delicacies, whose recipe were passed down from one generation to the other.

Yum, so delicious eaten with the dips.
Clothings, similar to those worn by people about 100 years ago are also sold there. You may find the clothings a bit too old fashioned and simple for you to wear when going out but you would realise that these clothes from the materials and designs, are made mainly for comfort. If you want to look like someone who was from that era, you can have a black and white picture of you taken wearing old fashioned clothes, with your hairstype and the backdrop of your photo matching those times. Interesting right?
