More energy seems to be devoted to folkloric clothing in Lienz than to virtually any other product in town. Consequently, you'll find lots of outlets scattered throughout the tourist zone, one of the best of which is Krismer, André-Kranz-Gasse 4 (tel. 04852/62497). The store has stacks of old-fashioned clothes (dirndls, lederhosen, loden coats, alpine hats with pheasants' feathers, embroidered suspenders) that correspond to East Tyrolean traditions. And if you're hankering for a sampling of the local breads, cheeses, sausages, and bundnerfleisch (air-dried alpine beef that's reminiscent of beef jerky), consider dropping into any of the well-stocked local delicatessens, a particularly worthwhile example of which is Feinkost Zuegg, Rechteiselkai (tel. 04852/669930).
