Re: Christmas Market

Hello, I just joined this forum and it is a bit like going to a new city, getting off the bus, and not knowing what to do next. I do like your posts about the Christmas Markets. It seems the Malls have over run all the quaint places to go shopping.

Re: Christmas Market

I personally love what I refer to as "mom & pop" stores. Shopping Malls are so impersonal. I enjoy entire blocks of small specialty stores with everything decorated and unique. Such a place is located in Seattle, Washington and is known as Pike's Place Market.It's an open market atmosphere where you can get almost everything. I love the German butcher shop where I can purchase hard to find specialties such as headcheese. Yum!

I envy your upcoming trip to the Black Forest Christmas shops. Please bring a camera and show us some photos.
