Oleg squeezedly shook his head:
You imagine, I used to hand over them with tens in scrap metal! And now this such deficit. I would be all back, they would earn money. But no longer return!
You will find! A lot of villages.
-Well, first, not I am so smart. Competition is very big. And, secondly, there are few in the villages of old refrigerators, there are already all that could have passed everything. You need to look at all in other places.
Oleg is a permanent chief, brigadier and director of search engines. The firms that united several people are seekers of old things, ancient materials, rarities, antiques, all that can be purchased beneficial, and, most importantly, to resemble more.
Not two or three times, and not even in 5 or 10.
And sometimes hundreds of times.
My second meeting with Oleg occurred quite by chance. As you already know, we bought a house in the ancient Ural village of Kaga. As a gift to the house, the old owners left us about halftone scrap metal, which included two old refrigerators and one freezer.
Since we have no cargo car, but to the nearest clam point about 80 km., We decided all this wealth simply to put up for the fence. The village often drives «wild» Armenian receivers on gazelles: buy accumulated trash at the local, and at the same time they cut off where it lies badly.
So it will not be alleged!
There was no hour, as the first fly flew to our bunch. The will of the fate of this «fly» turned out to be Oleg, who defeated the refrigerators carefully dismissed by me.
Well, since we are familiar, then to the tea with jam and cookies in the burden, there was a questioning with a predilection.
It turns out that in the last year, the search engines of the antiquities of the old places besides the old tree and the brick, which in the Urals full-fulfillment, found a new golden custody.
And this lived called the old Soviet refrigerators!
The fact is that recently in the metropolitan cities and especially abroad simply prevented on the rare things of Soviet times. And one of these things that is very valued and is right at the peak of popularity are ZIS refrigerators and Zil.
For the weight of gold, the refrigerators «ZIL-Moscow» kh-240 are coming. For the refrigerator of this brand in good condition (not a rusty case) easily give 25 thousand rubles. If shelves and interior decoration are preserved, the price exceeds 100 thousand rubles. From one cottage village of Brigade Oleg «pulled out» three refrigerators, each of whom went to Finland for 1.5 thousand euros.
Why do they need and where does such a price come from?
Oddly enough, a major role in popularity of Soviet refrigerators played … A computer game called Follaut. Also, the passion for foreign designers of ancient, attention to the Soviet past, things from the «totalitarian time» played its role.
Ultimately, one Norwegian dancer took the old refrigerator, replaced the entire filling on Liebher in it so that the aggregate would satisfy the standards of A ++.
It turned out just a bombing effect!
And rushed …
Many repeated the same design. The demand for old refrigerators began to exceed the proposal. Since for many European consumers (and even more so more than our), the purchase of retro-dickens with a new content suddenly became too expensive, European manufacturers quickly fit to the new fashion.
The Italian company SMEG was faster, which released a whole line of kitchen equipment in retro style of 50s. But her refrigerators cannot boast a humane price tag — the cheapest costs from 133 thousand, while the top retro models easily break through the bar in 400 thousand.
It did not go around the cooking hobby and our designers. In Moscow and St. Petersburg, there are at least three large firms that are engaged in alteration of old refrigerators. Prices «to put it mildly» do not even bite, but frankly on the wallets of ordinary people. For the converted «Zilok» with a premium stuffing, with gold-plated golden handles, gently hugs a price tag of 1.5 million.
On the wave of retro fashion, search engines began not to simply disassemble the old buildings, but also carefully examine the country’s cottages, old villages. What if someone in the Seine or in the barn costs it … Retro-happiness?
And you do not have such refrigerators?
Unfortunately, we were thrown out in the 90s …
