Bruges (Toy) Shop

Just a quick peek around here. Although I call them toy shops, they are more decorative figurines. I could not find a use for them and personally I would not buy one, but I am fascinated by these hand crafted objects, high attention to detail and yes, they can be very pricey.

very cute indeed. They are someone's special art form.
Ayush Basu: I imagine the ones who create this either have very good eyesight or very poor, Beth!

Well taken, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Ray.
Jolis petits personnages.
Ayush Basu: Indeed they are, Martine.
I know what you mean, Ayush - I love looking at them, and admiring the craft... but have no use for them.
You've made a really nice image of these, at any rate!
Ayush Basu: I was quite pleased with the images though, Elizabeth.
Ils sont mignons ces petits personnages.
Bonne journée Ayush
Ayush Basu: I am in complete agreement with you, Pascale.

They have a lot of detail Ayush
Ayush Basu: I imagine the ones who create this either have very good eyesight or very poor, Chris!

I suppose children would like these Ayush, and hence your toy shop billing sounds suitable.
Ayush Basu: I am sure they would be highly appealing to children, Chad.
They make a nice photo though, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: I was content with just photographing them and moving on, Frank.
There will be some people whjo collect these sort of things.
Ayush Basu: No doubt, Brian. The place looked well stocked and had other signs of having done good business.

Like you Ayush - I'm willing to admire the craftsmanship, but wouldn't give one houseroom.
Ayush Basu: We are on the same page then, Anne.

I find them to be great photo-ops, Ayush, as you already know. You've just gotten me into the spirit. smile
Ayush Basu: I am sure you would have loved this place, Ginnie.
they are for collectors, i imagine... collections give comfort smile
Ayush Basu: I am with you on that, Elaine. I see some people also have collections of fine porcelain.
A world in miniature...

You put your finger on the issue with these figures "I could not find a use for them". I have seen the Käthe Wohlfahrt Christmas decoration shops in many cities in Europe. I just shook my head.
Ayush Basu: I looked up the shop you mention and it apparently attracts millions of tourists annually, Louis!

I can understand the work that goes into these but I would not buy one either.
Ayush Basu: I do not think I have the eyesight or the patience to make one of these, Alan.

Nicely framed. I love that shop, they have a branch in York, England.
Ayush Basu: Thank you, CP. I loved the photo opportunity here, but I do not think I have the eyesight or the patience to make one of these.

I agree with you, Ayush. What would we do with one?
Ayush Basu: I was content with just photographing them and moving on, Lisl.

I so love these little men, like you do, Arusha. It is amazing how small and detailed they are. Some people collect them and I think a nice item for Christmas.
Ayush Basu: Yes, I can see that they would perhaps make a welcome gift item, Astrid. And perhaps in the coming weeks, this shop will see many visitors and customers!
Quite ornate with the attention to details. I can only imagine how pricey they get... smile
Ayush Basu: I do not think I have the eyesight or the patience to make one of these, Sudipto.
