Saint Paul, Minnesota

Max Krug seems to be the definitive place to go in Munich for traditional German goods. The store is larger than it seems from the outside and is packed from top to bottom.
At Max Krug, you will find hundreds of beer steins, cuckoo clocks, nutcrackers, smokers, music boxes, and some small touristy items - shot glasses, playing cards, and the like. You could spend hours looking at the intricacies carved on everything.
The prices are reasonable - I paid 25€ for a nice beer stein. They do take credit cards and are happy to ship your items anywhere.
