Weavers Market in Haslach (Upper Austria)

After a night of bad dreams I woke up extra early on Saturday and decided to play hooky and let housework be housework and treat myself to an excursion to Haslach, where a huge weavers market took place this weekend.
Arriving on the bottom of the village I climbed the stairs uphill towards the exhibition and market area.
Different weaving presentations could be watched and the old manufactury visited.
But to be honest, the most interesting area was the market, which took over all the small places and streets of Haslach:
Clothes, blankets, shawls and hats,

but also other creative uses for woven and felted things:

 
Most importantly and not to be missed, the mouse teaparty and the cat watching the mice!
 
Full of impressions, colour, good food, cute mice, cats and geeslings I returned to Vienna in the evening. A long drive, but definitely worth it!
