Fresh Chinese pirated copies of martial needles of the National people's army and medals for excellent services in agricultural production co-operatives have arrived. "It really feels to be sixty, seventy years back," says a pensioner with a Ganglion, and a specially from Dresden travelled house wife rejoices: "Ähnfach groußahrdch!"

For this reason, we even conduct artificial supply shortages brought about ...“

Empty shelves gape currently, especially where the proven Milwa curtain salt, handy prefabricated finished parts and the polishing paste Elster-gloss should be stored. But also tropical fruits, a blatant deficiency, the welding is the of destiny customer base, no doubt close together there.
