Your basic grocery store, with lots of the basics you need. Meat, veges, fruit, bread, juice, etc. But, they don't sell fingernail clippers here, to my dismay. I needed to go all the way to Bohinj Bistricta for that item, along with shoelaces.
What to buy: I got cookies here, they were cheap and good.
What to pay: Typical grocery store prices

When you are in the Alps, make sure you have a map, have someone in your group that knows how to read it, or stick close to other groups. The main trails are marked pretty well, but it is always best to understand where you are on a topographic map so you don't go down a wrong trail.

Luggage and bags: Have a large backpack to store your stuff while hiking
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Bring both warm and cool weather gear, sturdy boots, and some sort of rain protection. The weather at higher altitudes becomes unpredictable, it can be beautiful during the day and below freezing at night. It can be sunny and rainy on the same day, pack accordingly.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: A small medical kit for your group is advised
Photo Equipment: Thsi is also a must, it is so beautiful
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Sleep and eat meal sin the huts, but bring water and some snacks for the trail.

Okay, I didn't do any of this stuff, but i looked into it and decided I would rather go to the cow festival (sad, but true). I spoke with guys teaching climbing on a wall face near the lake, checked out the cost to parasail (about $75), and talked with the guys renting out boats. I believe I was a little wiped out from the hike to Triglav the previous days, so I choose to drink beer and hang with the locals.
It is pretty easy to find info about these sports out once you get to the lake. Either stop at the tourist office near Hotel Jezero or take a walk/drive around the lake and you will pass kiosks.
Equipment: rent it

Address: Lake Bohinj
Favorite thing: Okay, I have no idea where this goes, but we needed to wash our extremely dirty clothes after about a week on the road. We stopped at the tourist office for tips, they recommended a campground in Bohinj Bistritca (sic?). Here you can get coins for their laundry equipment and freshen up your clothes. Ask te tourist office to call ahead for their hours (so you can get the coins), they are a little funky.
So, you say three bachelors taking care of laundry is amusing? Well, it was. We didn't really know how to use these machines, they were different from in the states. I believe one of our loads got washed three times since it just NEVER seemed to end. Finally, we got our dirtiness taken care of, but it was quite the adventure.
Fondest memory: Was this really my fondest memory...no way, but it is a funny memory.
