There is a large shop in Ettlingen called the 1 Euro shop. I never got a picture but I did buy a holdall to carry home all the extra things that I bought in Germany. You get what you pay for believe me. The bag cost 4 Euro and did not make it home! When it came off the conveyer belt at Stansted it had a big hole in the side of it. I must have packed very carefully as nothing had escaped!!! (Not even the 4 lipsticks rolling about in the bottom of it)
What to buy: They sell everything from umbrellas to suitcases and toiletries.
What to pay: From 1 Euro upwards
Leopoldstraße is the main pedestrian street in Ettlingen. You find all different sorts of shops in this street, bakeries, bookstores, butchers, travel agencies, hairdressers, jewelry shops and the like. It is fun to go window shopping here, so try it!
This shop opened in summer 2006. Most of the items they sell only cost 1 €, so this is a fun shop to look around in! They have everything from shampoo to underwear to spices to pens, lighters, vases etc!
What to buy: Well, our VT gang spent quite a few Euros there and here is what they bought:
Natalie bought a bag (since she had been shopping in Karlsruhe before and needed the extra bag to carry everything home!!! Bernd and Sonja both bought an umbrella and Ingrid bought a new scarf, since she had lost her pink one earlier that day!
What to pay: 1 €
This is the place where I work:
it is a hearing aid shop.
If you need hearing aids do take time - you don't just walk in and buy one - you should test it for a couple of days before deciding!
What to buy: High quality hearing-aids
