The latest Dutch fashion

On the way to Chicago we stopped in at Holland, Michigan. They had a Dutch village which looked interesting. At the entrance they had the entrance prices listed. I told the lady we couldn't possibly afford that and did they have family prices. "No" she replied, "But you can go to the shoe factory for free." "That sounds like our price" I replied and we went in.
The shoe factory was part of the shops that are at the public end of the village. So we just had a look and found the Dutch licorice, and a couple of pins for Lana. This is just as well as the main reason we went was to top up our Dutch licorice supply.
If you thought clogs were old wooden things, this photo is of some of the high Dutch fashion now available.
