When I travel, I love looking in the shop windows. I like to see what is popular in other countries. Years ago, when I worked in retail, I often created the store window displays. I enjoyed that part of the job a lot so it is fun to observe the creation of other window display artists. Our latest trip had many great window displays that I would like to share with you. The pictures are not always the best as shooting through glass has its limits.
I was delighted to find a store that sold Steiff toys. I used to sell these toys when I worked at a gift shop years ago.
Steiff is the home of the original Teddy Bear, named after Theodore Roosevelt after he visited the factory and commented on how the bears looked a lot like him. My children have a nice collection of these adorable stuffed animals.
I also sold Hummel Figures in that same gift store owned by a wonderful German woman. I discovered this display in Vienna as well.

I love checking out the shoe store windows in other cities. There were some wild displays in Budapest!
Do you enjoy looking at the shop windows when travelling?
