Lifestyle of 70s China

[ From: Eric Jin | Published: 2007-10-31 Views: 2125 | Booked times: 62 ]

So what did the Chinese use and wear in the 70s? You can see this upon entering Chai-Na Secondhand Shop on the Yandai Xiejie. The store name is a pun on the English pronunciation of China, but actually means ¡°dismantling¡±, The shop owner has been collecting the valuable and interesting secondhand goods from the relocated households. He has such a huge selection of old items, from radios to clothes to toys.

Among all his ¡°treasure¡±, the owner loves the Yanwu tape recorder most memorable. He noted it was really one of the first tape recorders made in China, and still works very well after nearly 40 years! Priced at RMB 388, this recorder cost even more than a new one.

The prices for the goods there range from RMB 2 for a picture-book to RMB 488 for an old TV. The guy speaks only basic English, but he will definitely try his best to make you feel the lifestyles of Chinese people in that period of time.

What I appreciate

The tape recorder and the 1970s' decoration style

What customers appreciate

A large selection of old second things
