JudenburgDecember 1, 2016 in Austria
Travelling north west towards Salzburg, we stopped over at Judenburg in the swimming baths' car park. The town had a great independent textiles shop, its assistant was very helpful and enthusiastic about the materials Vicky wanted, providing suggestions as to what might be best. She told us the old till that showed the price in groschen and schillings was 100 years old, the shop had been there for 70 years and she had worked there for 40 years!
Judenburg had its own little Advent market with a large tree and wooden huts arranged around a square with a couple of fire baskets that were kept topped up with logs. Will had a Glühwein and Vicky a hot chocolate with rum as we admired the handmade decorations on the stalls around us. The lights were again mostly traditional fairy lights but there was one modern display of two led snowmen measuring around 6ft and 12ft tall!Read more
