i've found info about a second hand store in korea, have to check it out. also was given a link for point to point subway directions so i'll know how to get there. i check the buy/sell/trade on daves every so often, too.
and this website looks great, only 5000W delivery fee i think, but it's in hangul and i cant read nerfin. a few of my colleagues used this website (one got a queen size bed and frame for 80USD, another got a twin, matress only, for 60USD, think of it like maybe a craigslist) and they asked the korean staff at work to help them.
update 4/1/07: byaah! i didnt have to buy a thing! byyaaahhhh!!!
9/2007 another update: so im wanting to buy a futon. its hard getting things when you read-speak the language. but here are some websites that may help.
first, in english"
- http://weagookinmall.com/ ikea stuff
- yesstyle clothes and such
- whatthebook for books. also link in upper right for "english shop."
- yesasia movies, karaoke, music, toys, books and beading tools, if youre into beading!
- seoulselection, books, dvds, and self proclaimed "shop for koeran cultural and intellectual products."
- okokokok.com foreigners classifieds.
if you can read korean, or have a k-friend to help:
- gmarket also has a link in upper right for "english shop". clothes, accessories, books, dvds.
- http://global.gmarket.co.kr/ which is i think the same... sorry... im tired.
- http://www.usedtown.co.kr/ couple of coworkers of mine bought their beds here, for under 100$.
- http://tomatobed.com/ for your bed. but you do need a korean credit card. if you have a friend who can help you, you can ask them to buy the bed, and then reimburse them or trans money into their account or something.
