100 yen stores/Магазин товаров по 100 иен.

When someone told me that the 100 yen stores are pretty good, I was pretty sceptical about it. Then I went and checked it out for myself and I was impressed! Here are some pictures:

В Японии есть магазины, в которых любая вещь стоит 100 иен. Я скептически отнесся к выбору и качеству товара, но когда зашел в такой магазин, то оказался приятно удивлен. Вот фотографии:





That particular store sells the following items: copybooks, pens and pencils, kitchen utensils, bowls, containers, some food (some kind of chips), lots of gardening stuff, toys, small electronic items (headphones, plug adapters, they even have the blank cassette tapes), and a whole bunch of other stuff that I can't remember. The items sell for cheap, but the quality is very good. The metal forks don't feel light, the plastic items are all nicely polished, the copy books don't look like they will fall apart, the china plates, even though they are small, look very pretty. One of the items that we got were socks, socks for chairs and the table:

Этот конкретный магазин продает тетрадки, ручки и карандаши, кухонные принадлежности, чашки, тарелки, какие-то чипсы, садоводческие товары (инструменты, горшки, и т.д.), небольшие электронные штучки (адаптеры, наушники, даже есть аудиокассеты), и прочее и прочее. Хоть товары стоят и недорого, это никак не отражается на качестве. Пластиковые изделия стоят красивые и без заусенцев. Металлические вилки на вес действительно металлические, тарелки, хоть и маловаты размером, все приятно разукрашены. Мы купили в магазине носки, носки для стульев и стола:
Now our kitchen furniture no longer complains about arthritis makes noise when being dragged :) By the way, the "pretty napkin"-looking thingie on the top of the picture was bought at the same store too!

Теперь наша кухонная мебель не будет жаловаться на артрит скрипеть по кухонному полу когда будем ее двигать. Кстати, вот та салфеточка, на верху фотографии, тоже из того же магазина.
