    Two very creative ladies who makes a lot of nice handicraft products in a old farmhouse in Innfjorden (about 10-15 minutes out of Åndalsnes).

    Souvernirshops: Made in China

    by SailorRoar Written Jul 8, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I don't know about you, but when I buy souvenirs from a trip I like to get something that is typical for the area. Typical for the area are of course Trolls, but before you buy take a look underneath and check if it is made in Norway or China. A lot of the trolls are mass produced in China, just a tip to those of you that thinks that things like that matters :)

    Souvenir stalls: Tacky and expensive

    Souvenir stalls on Trollstigen

    The area around the car park at the top of Trollstigen has a number of stalls selling 'souvenirs', mostly trolls of various shapes and colours. Expensive but tacky, they are not worth a second look. Don't bother with them, admire the view. You'll find nicer things in shops elsewhere.
    In the picture one of the tacky trolls put there to encourage prospective buyers. If I were a real troll, I'd do something about that monstrous image of me. Push it down the mountain perhaps?
