Faber Castell Factory in Germany

While on a holiday in Germany, I talked my husband into making a stop at the Faber Castell Factory near Nuremberg, Germany.  Faber Castell was founded in 1761 and is still owned by the descendants of the original founder, Kasper Faber, 250 years later.

 Their pencils are one of my favorites and I couldn't help but go into the shop and buy some pencils I needed and a few other goodies.

The showroom of the Faber Castell shop is beautiful.  Everything is out for you to look at and touch.
Its fun to see all the new merchandise!

Happy Painting to all my art friends!
