Das Erzgebirge-Haus

There is a quaint little wooden toy store at the corner of the third level at Raffles City Mall and it has been there since 1998. It reminds me of Santa's little workshop and gives a feeling of Christmas all year through. Das Erzgebirge-Haus - Singapore carries a wide assortment of wooden crafts from the Erzgebirge (Ore Mountains) in Germany for retail. Little men and women are crafted to look like cooks, ballon man, traders, hunters etc. Another familiar Erzgebirge tradition is the guardian angel. Each Angel conveys different message, be it for love, to wish someone good health, for housewarmings, for newborn babies or mothers-to-be, for friends traveling away, and many more. Think they make beautiful Christmas gifts.
