germany - mom n pop stores in the middle of nowhere
had a heart attack last month and currently in a spa clinic in the mountains recovering / lazing about / experimenting with no traction control on mountain hairpins.
been exploring the countryside as i am right on the hessen / bavarian border and there are loads of little toy shops in the villages near here.
found 9v motors and track, creator car ferries, older duplo, 2 cases of s1 figs amongst other odds n sods.
the weirdest sightings had to be a directors set from 2000 with software etc (200 euro...) , primo and scala sets. a shop which mostly sells RC models had some action sets from mid-90s.
if anyone is thinking of coming over and is in fulda (A66 / A7) or aschaffenburg / frankfurt (A3) let me know and i'll give you a heads up.
The saddest part of going to these stores is remembering my childhood in the late 70s and there being similar stores in tonbridge (westoys and arthur hull) and tunbridge wells (whites) which have all been shut for at least 20 years. says it all about the decline of UK high streets when a town of 30,000 people cant support a toy shop but a german village of 2000 can.
