My Scholarship entry - A 'place' I have visited

As I ventured further into the town of St. Gilgen, I stumbled upon a small Advent Market. It was mid-day and the streets were quite empty, but the stalls were all open and I had a little browse to see what I could find to put under the Christmas tree back home. This decorative toy, hanging from the ceiling of one of the stands made me feel like I was him - up in the mountains hunting for a bargain. This stand was particularly well decorated, and sold some of the most intricate nativity scenes and religious dolls I've ever seen.
