AUSTRALISS Jewellery Gallery Re-Opens And Now At Friedrichstrasse 6, Erlangen.

Thanks Silvia.

Superstitious people would say Friday the 13th on any calendar  is unlucky. ‘ QUATSCH ‘as they say in Germany.  Moira Drexler has moved her shop AUSTRALISS to the centre of Erlangen at the Friedrichstrasse number 6 .

Prosecco and Macaroons in colour co-ordianated style were part of the low key celebration……after all, Australiss has now been an Erlangen institution since September, 2007………but now being in a central location makes it easier to get to, parking is close by at the Grossparkplatz, or Peek and Cloppenberg or the likely choice, the Erlangen Arcade.  Cyclists delight as they park out the front, (just be careful of my lovely flower boxes!), pedestrians stop and stare, there are carparks on the street but best of all, it is in the heart of Erlangen and is now along one of the most loved gourmet and individual shopping strips Erlangen has to offer.

Here are some fond memories of the opening on Friday, 13th of May, 2011.
