Shopping at Night in Mostar

When the nights are long, cold and dark, it's nice to visit the shops and take in some of the sparkling warmth from the lights. Around Christmas the various stores in the city transform into warm harbors and shields from the cold outside. I took my camera with me during our recent visit to a home-decor store. Hopefully you will enjoy these, and I hope they will bring some warmth into your cold nights as well.

I really liked these purple-green-yellow decorations. Might even get them for my tree.


Some rather expensive artificial Christmas trees were in the middle of the store.


I love this little corner with many different things to discover.


Admittedly, I love snooping around home goods stores like this one. Especially when they offer unique looking nick-nacks and furniture.




So many to choose from...

Have a great weekend ahead.
What is lighting up your days in the dark season?

  5. Dear Marsad - In the long and cold night, it’s quite natural for people to head for somewhere warm, bright, and colorful like these lovely shops, restaurants, cafes, and of course for sweet home. I enjoyed strolling the shops around with you.

    das ist clever - wenn es kalt ist, kann man sich so wunderbar aufwärmen und dabei noch Weihnachtsgeschenke einkaufen. Sehr schöne Bilder, wobei das Licht und die Stimmung sehr gut eingefangen.
