Well, you could find quality stuff at the ethnographical museum from Cluj-Napoca, but sometimes their prices are too high.
For example, I baught a traditional shepherds overcoat made out of wool for 450 lei.

Yes :D
He loved turks.
The turks called him "Kazikli Bey" meaning "the Impaler Prince"...
He was a nice man ... to bad that he was betrayed by the romanian aristocracy and his head ended up on a pike in the port of Istanbul :~(

"Vlad Ţepeş committed even more impalements and other tortures against invading forces, namely Ottomans. It was once reported that an invading Ottoman army turned back in fright when it encountered thousands of rotting corpses impaled on the banks of the Danube. In 1462 Mehmed II, the conqueror of Constantinople, a man not noted for his squeamishness, returned to Constantinople after being sickened by the sight of 20,000 impaled corpses outside of Vlad's capital of Tārgovişte. Many of the victims were Turkish prisoners of war Vlad had previously captured during the Turkish invasion. The total Turkish casualty toll in this battle reached over 40,000. The warrior sultan turned command of the campaign against Vlad over to subordinates and returned to Istanbul, even though his army had initially tripled Vlad's in size and was better equipped."

For those interested, I found a video on youtube.com with a romanian song.
I belive that it`s from eastern Romania (Moldavia):
