Sewing machines selling well
Now here's a proof conveyed by Hankyoreh that the Korean economy is not good: sewing machines are selling well. Also other devices that help in getting more years out of ordinary commodities are in favor of customers. Well, this info is only from the net exchange site Auction, but the figures are telling: in 2002 3500 sewing machines were sold, in 2003 some 4200, and this year until the end of October, more than 15000 pieces.
I guess the bad economy isn't that bad for "Yumin's mother's" clothing repair shop in Sillim-dong either.
