‘One man’s trash is another man’s treasure’. This old saying is applied in Mall Rongsok, a junk shop that sits on 800 square meters. In this so called ‘mall’, one can find heaps of goods such as old electronics, books, and all sorts of furniture and junks that were cleaned and repaired before being put on display.
The Jakarta Post spoke to Nurcholis Agi, a 52-year-old man who has turned these old, unwanted items into something valuable in his three-story mall of junk. (JP/Donny Fernando)
