European Country Living

Yesterday, I went with my friend Sarah (who is newly returned from Iraq) to this awesome furniture store in Landstuhl, called European Country Living. It's run by a German-American couple, and caters to Americans. It was awesome! The furniture and such comes from all over Europe, which I thought was pretty neat. Everyone there speaks English, and they happily take VAT forms. And, more importantly, everything there was gorgeous. It was all the large, sturdy type of furniture that you might expect to see in a rambling country home. And the home decor items that they had were wonderful too. I saw this dress form and thought immediately of Corinnea.
It absolutely just belongs in the shop!!! And then, I saw these and thought that they would be perfect for you, Jenny, to display your jewelry:

The shop is kinda pricey, though. (I think it was €16 each for the jewelry racks, which wasn't too bad, and €58 for the mannequin.) So I happily wandered around to look at what there was to see. I would totally recommend it to anyone with a day free, whether you are in the market for furniture or not. Sarah told me that their stock rotates, so what was there yesterday might not be available a month from now! She's planning to go back, now that she has some measurements, and has a better idea of what will work in her apartment (what they had was beautiful, but not really apartment-friendly) and I have every intention of going with her again. Fun times!
