Where We Are Going Today: Crystal Ages

  • Crystal Ages is an online boutique in Riyadh that sells all things vintage and antique

Many of us are collectors, in one way or another, and for someone like me — who enjoys stockpiling books, jewelry and vintage typewriters (among other things) — discovering @crystalages on Instagram was like finding Aladdin’s Cave of Wonders.
Crystal Ages is an online boutique in Riyadh that sells all things vintage and antique. The shop tracks down jewelry, watches, signed items, books, vinyl records and high-end branded items that are decades old, and much more besides, then cleans and restores them, if needed, before putting them up for sale to customers throughout the Kingdom.
The boutique also sells original paintings, cameras, home decorations and vintage electrical devices, such as record players. It’s collections also include historical items from Saudi Arabia, such as notes and coins of the country’s former currencies, and magazines and newspapers from the eras of King Khalid and King Faisal.
When I contacted the shop to buy a typewriter, I found the staff to be very professional, prompt and polite. My purchase was delivered on time and in terrific condition. It was a gift for a friend for her birthday and when she received it she was absolutely speechless, so I am very grateful for Crystal Ages, who bring much joy to collectors and lovers of vintage goods and antiquities.

Sports authority sets up Italian-themed village for AC Milan and Juventus fans attending Supercoppa Italiana

  • The village emulates ancient Italian cities, as well as cultural and historical elements of Italy and Saudi Arabia
  • The village will host a variety of activities, including two theatrical performances

JEDDAH: The Saudi General Sports Authority (GSA) has set up an Italian-themed village for AC Milan and Juventus fans attending the Italian Super Cup match on Wednesday at King Abdullah Sports City stadium.

The village emulates ancient Italian cities, as well as cultural and historical elements of Italy and Saudi Arabia. 

Fans will also be served dishes from the cuisines of both countries and enjoy Italian music.

The village will host a variety of activities, including two theatrical performances. The first will commence at 6 p.m. and the second at 8 p.m.

The Italian village is located in front of gate 6. Events will take place between 4 p.m. and 10 p.m.

Juventus stars, including Cristiano Ronaldo, landed in Jeddah on Monday, while AC Milan team members arrived on Sunday morning. 

The Italian stars received a warm welcome by their fans in the Kingdom. 

The GSA announced on Twitter that cameras are not allowed during the Super Cup final.

Both AC Milan and Juventus have won the Super Cup title seven times since the annual football competition was launched in 1988.

Saudi Arabia will become the fifth foreign nation to host the Super Cup after the US, China, Libya and Qatar.

An agreement to host the match was signed in June by Turki Al-Sheikh, the GSA’s then-chairman, and Marco Brunelli, executive director of the Italian Professional Football League.
