1980 - the central date in my store

1980 - it was the year I started school , the year Olympics took place in Moscow and in my hometown Tallinn. Many important architectural objects in Tallinn were completed that exact year.
Most of the novelties at my store specifically dates back to the 1980 s because that was the year that brought new products to store shelves, products that were never before seen in Soviet Estonia.
In order to purchase new shoes one had to stand in line for hours or do it through acquaintances- almost every Soviet citizen had a relative or friend working at a store. Standing in queues was a daily routine and it was usual that once you reached the counter, your size was already sold out. That`s also the reason why Soviet women wore shoes that were too small.
Often people bought products that they did not exactly need and which were then set aside to wait for the day they`d perhaps be of use.
That`s why one can purchase vintage clothes at my store, which are often with tags or completely new.
To us who were children at the time, it was just a weekday and everything the West symbolized seemed to us unattainable and mystic.
As adults we can look back at Soviet aesthetics in a different way and feel nostalgic.
Soviet design is often a clumsy replication of western design.
A quality-label was used for the best products. Aside from top grade products, there were also second and third grade products, or so to say faulty items.
Even those were for sale and were often used as everyday items. You can buy these same staff here.
Each item has their own story to tell...
