It's set up like an old-time drugstore, with jars upon jars of colorful beads and scoops to get them out. It makes me feel like a small child buying candy at a local general shop in the 30's. I was certainly giddy enough. Knitters, crocheters, and other textile lovers would also adore it. They DON'T sell fabric but they do have skeins and skeins of gorgeous wool, ribbons, buttons, feathers, threads and more buttons.
I bought oh so many beads... I'll have more posts soon showing you what I make!!
It was freezing out but sunny and gorgeous--look at the blue sky! We had lunch in a little restaurant right on the main cathedral square.
The cathedral, which is famous for only having one spire. Apparently, the architect died before the construction was complete, and they've left it like that ever since. Who knew?
Then, we meandered some more until we hit another of our favorite shops--La Cure Gourmande. This place, let me tell you, is pure sugar, fat and deliciousness wrapped up in one tiny, adorable, vintage-decorated and sweet-smelling shop!
One of their specialties is this little round cookie/cake filled with a pasty filling of fruit or chocolate. It doesn't even sound nearly as good as it is, believe me.
After consuming lots of rich, sweet things, we wandered around some more, checked out some clothes shops, found a very cool vintage-y flea market, went to the huge grocery store, bought some more yumminess, and drove home. Anyone who's thinking about planning a trip to Alsace or even France--you MUST see Strasbourg!
Couldn't do this every day. Well... that's a lie. I'm sure I could. But it's back to work tomorrow for me...
