This shop sells felt work, a specialty that is dying out. The works that are created are not overly beautiful, still they are typical and somewhat attractive. The owner of this shop (he was out, a neighbour showed me around) seems te be a master in his art, and indeed the works were quite. good. One major product used to be shepherds' coats, in the most dreary rain the water would just flow off the coat. We live in the age of plastics and indeed all the shepherds I met would wear mkodern clothes.
