Well, I had this same experience 2 days ago, when I visited "Die Mercerie" in Munich for the first time, to meet my dear "internet" friend Marcia there, whom I knew from Ravelry...
(We had tons of fun while chatting, knitting, enjoying our coffe and admiring all the goodies... all without ever leaving this heavenly place)!
You can find "Die Mercerie" in Nymphenburger Strasse 96.
Be sure to check this little wonder out next time you are in Munich!!!!
I will come back for sure....
