Seifen is a very relaxing place to go and spend your time shopping. You will be left alone to browse at your leisure and will only get help when asked. Every store owner/employee we came across was very polite and helpful. We took our time and went in all the stores before we decided upon what we would buy. All the stores are great so pace yourself. If you are traveling with a tour group, I suggest that you bring a comfortable pack to keep the things you buy, because you will buy a lot. We made more than one trip and always saw people buying more than they could carry. If you buy more than you want to carry, some of the stores will assist you with shipping.
Bottom line. Spend the whole day, preferably a weekday. Have lunch and some ice cream and buy alot. You will not get this quality of wood ornaments, nutcrackers, pyramids or toys at this price anywhere else. At least I haven't.
