This shop has been there for a while. Looking on the signs and ad stands I would make a guess it is in business for 40 years or more at the same address. The inside is even more impressive. Space there is highly organized. You would not find a little square of surface being empty for no reason. Most of the wall shelving is filled with sewing accessories: needles, threads, bobbins, foot attachments, lubricants, manuals, cables. Floor and stairs are orderly covered with machines of different brands, years of manufacture, sizes and, I suppose, prices. In between there are walking paths wide enough to fit a single person. If there are 2 people on a path, one of them will need to get in a small pocket to allow other one to pass.
