In Soviet times, things people could buy in stores were limited to mostly things of Soviet origin, and because it was the state that owned and controlled all the stores and all the manufacturing, the selection and quality was not very much welcomed by people - as it was normal that most people had the same furniture in their same-design apartments in typical same-design building complexes, wearing the same clothes and carrying the same suitcases. Only elite population groups had access to "elite" consumer goods. They were the ones who were in power and the
ones who travelled abroad as they had been paid with foreign currency abroad and the state needed currency so there were special shops selling stuff for foreign currency or the Soviet equivalent called "checks" - those were paychecks Soviet citizens received instead of currency while abroad, as foreign currency was not allowed to be owned. So here we have a catalogue of what was offered in such elite stores and what the prices were, you can compare them to the prices in your country at that time - around 1970-1980s.
