Best Of Vienna: Deckenbacher & Blümner (Mariahilferstraße)
This store is my favourite store to go windowshopping. I generally don’t go in, unless I’m with someone else, but just the windowshopping for this store is quite perfect.
On the one hand they sell these awesome, strange kitchen-appliances. They even have a banana-box, so that you can take a banana to work without it being squashed. They sell ice cubes shaped like the Easter Island statues. A serious amount of knives. And.. swords.
They sell all sorts of swords. Swords used in movies, swords based on historical swords. Katakana swords. And they are *all* awesome. I remember that the one time I did walk in, with my mom, they were selling the Dagger of Time from Prince Of Persia: Sands Of Time. I really wanted it, but my mom dragged me out of the store. I probably should’ve bought it anyway, but instead I settled for going back to the store often and admire the swords they have on display.
