Found this little gem of a store on Sunday when returning home from BD’s Mongolian Grill.
It’s one of those cute crazy little stores that have a bunch of stuff you never knew you needed, but once you see it, you definitely need it!
The owner is super nice and his dog Mozart is a beautiful Weimaraner, obtained from a rescue just a month ago! The owner even let me take his picture with my traveling elephant! (she travels to different locations and her hosts take her around and take her picture doing different things… today it was shopping!)

The store has cool kitchen gadgets, fun teapots, a set of martini glasses with skulls on them, a votive holder with pine cone shaped candles. There are fun books on different cities around the world, decorative bowls and vases, and just a whole bunch of really cool and fun things! Take a pop in and find some cool and interesting gifts for the ones your love!

And BD’s is the bombdigity of mongolian BBQ! MM mmm mmm! If you haven’t been – try it!

Chriskindl market

Vendor at ChristKindlMarket

Hi! I’m the wife of John and he got tired of me telling him to write about stuff happening around downtown and the state, so he gave me my own account! Aren’t you all lucky!! I’ll do my best to keep everyone updated on activities and going ons!

This week while cruising 16th street we came across the Chriskindl market. I had seen the info on the postcards that i got in my mailbox, but had no idea what it meant. I thought maybe it was a misspelling or some play on words, but no… It’s this cute little market

This is the official definition of what this place is:
“From the last weekend in November until the day before Christmas Eve, vendors from Germany and other foreign countries offer hand-carved wooden figurines and other handcrafts at Skyline Park where German food and beer, pastries, candies and Glühwein will be featured. ”

It is across from the clock tower, right next to the gourmet hot dog dude (which is another thing i need to try for lunch!)

We took a spin thou the booths and there were definitely some really cute and interesting items. There were hand painted boxes, cool glass ornaments, neat wood tea light holders and wooden candle holder that the heat from the candle spins the propeller arms. There was also some food – similar to October fest but with a couple new things that i had never heard before.

Would be a great place to get that “different” gift! Or at least get in the spirit!
