My husband and I lived in Germany so I had decided even if there weren't many shops open it would be a great place to take some pictures. We took some pictures and were disappointed that the fountain was not working, would have made a much nicer picture. We did find deLyn's Gallery open and were greeted by a very nice and knowledgeable man. We ended up buying a very unique hat for my husband after being told that it was made locally. If you are looking for a shopping experience this village is not for you, but if you are in the area it is worth stopping by.
