Our interest in German things was encouraged when we hosted a German exchange student in 1997. With German immigents on both sides of the family we had always know there were some interesting connections. However, with him around we discovered there were a lot of things which we had thought were family things that actually are much broader in scope.
When his parents came to visit and his mother cooked some meals it felt just like home.
With the advent of Ebay it suddenly became easy to accumulate a choice collection of German handcrafted items. Now it's time to put pictures and descriptions of our finds on the web where others can enjoy them too.
