Two ancient sisters run a tiny German gift shop. For decades locals go there for their delicate foil-wrapped Christmas chocolates, but clientele is waning. That’s because these gals have a hate-on for children ever since Hansel and Gretel escaped their clutches back in 1812. Now, child hating is completely condoned, even encouraged in my house, but it’s absolute fiscal suicide on Roncesvalles. They might not like little Mack mouthing their baguettes, but successful shopkeeps know that if they don’t welcome the Lululemoned and their Hummer-sized prams into their establishments with open bpa-free arms, they’ll be consumer toast before long.
