We are fascinated by matryoshka dolls and love them. Matryoshkas, lacquer boxes, bottle covers, Easter eggs Ö They are so cute, arenít they? It is not only their intricate ornament that makes them so special, but also the uniqueness and the effort required to paint them. There are no two nesting dolls alike; each one is individually hand painted by a skillful and caring artist. Yet most of this treasure is hidden in a single doll and reveals itself only when all five, ten or even twenty figurines are opened one by one and set next to each other on a table.
Not until we moved to Australia and settled here became we interested in the Russian nesting dolls. One of our best friends whom we had not heard for nearly ten years opened our eyes to this wonderful craft. Severely affected by perestroika and struggling to make ends meet in Russia, working as a scientist with a degree in chemical physics, he tried himself in retailing Russian souvenirs, and this eventually became his full time business.
It occurred to us only in 2003 that living in Australia and having some spare time we were in the position to help him. We began by selling Russian gifts on eBay. We still do, and will soon have 4000 happy customers. You are welcome to visit our eBay Store and check our feedback.
We opened this online store in May 2007. Building the MatryoshkaStore.com from the scratch has been quite exciting; it is still being modified a lot. We really hope that the store is user friendly and easy to shop at. Your comments and thoughts are very welcome!
