[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I traveled around New Zealand by InterCity buses. The network is quite extensive and I managed to go to the most interesting places. On the way, the bus stopped in some places for photos or lunch, the driver gave information about different aspects of New Zealand.
On the way from National Park to Auckland, we stopped in a small town Taumarunui. It was enough time to eat something small and also to walk around. In the side street, I noticed this window of the abandoned toy shop. back in five minutes - more than forty years passed.
Strange thing, I have found the Manuate street in Google map, but there is no this shop. (The image in Google was captured in 2010.)
I found this shop window charming. I hope you will like it too.

Hello Malgo,
A charming capture of this shop from bygone times; when you and I were both young I guess ;-) Much to see and all in excellent detail. I like the colours and textures and the old bike, even though I like you can't ride one!

Ciao Malgo,

C'est vrai que cette vitrine est belle et fascinante surtout au niveau des vieilles choses à vendre ou non. L'effet des reflets de la vitre est intéressant.



Hello Malgo,
Lots of curious details that could probably be bought cheaply - if the shop is open. How did you know that more than forty years had passed? It seems the shop was opened more recently than 2010. Maybe the sign "back in 5 minutes" is for sale, and not intended as a message to the customers. Obviously it's an interesting photo to raise such questions. ;-)
Kind regards,

Hello Malgo, this is a very strange shop, I can't quite understand it!
I note a doll sitting in a high chair, the bicycle looks quite rusty, and what is the rotting wood and rusty corrugated sheet in the background all about?
It isn't a charity shop, so what is it?
The title is very apt.
Thanks for sharing.
Regards Jean.

Hello Malgo,
A great impression of this old shop with so many interesting details. The rusty bike, the pots and pans on the table and the 5 min sign are the most eye-catching parts. Very well captured.

Hello Malgo,

What an additional picture with a nice interior and "Back in 5 min's".
Also your both WS picture are a nice addition.
You chose an excellent angle.
Sharpness and clarity are perfect.
Very well done, TFS.

Have a nice day,

It looks much more than just a toy shop, Malgo, more of a local museum - and obviously it caught your attention.
A surprise stop to spot something of the non-ordinary.
Bravo for this one.

Ciao cara Malgo, lovely composition with original store, splendid light, wonderful colors, excellent clarity and fine details, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Ciao Malgo,

Missed this one. It does indeed look like a late 60's, early 70's residence. Lots to take in and excellent sharpness, colour and saturation. I like the workshops too. Tfs!

nice details of the store and its decorative objects I suppose are being sold too. curious place and details.

take care


Ciao Malgo
strano che nel 2010 non ci fosse stato, però tutto è possibile, in 8 anni cambiano molte cose.
In ogni caso si tratta di catture molto interessanti.
Buon we

Wita Malgorzata So much vintage items to refresh my souvenirs of years gone by! When I was a kid, my grandmother beated eggs and sauces with such a cranked hand-held beater! I also inherited of an old time piece like the one standing on the cupboard. Thanks for the sweet memories. Pozdrawiam
