An old, small, state-owned shop in Sanyingmen city, Shanxi province, still sells various daily necessities that are a bit dated, but easy to use. Most notably, these products are very cheap and not found in the more common shops and supermarkets.
Set up in the 1950s, the small shop has gone through economic reforms and market orientation changes, but still exists manages to operate amid competition from numerous large supermarkets and modern shops.
The shopkeepers here still use an abacus to calculate prices and an old-fashioned platform scale to weigh goods. Friendship vanishing cream, Ostrich ink, Tiger medical oil; all these small things remind people of the good old days.



Life is hard; it's harder if you're stupid.
