Judaica Art Shop, Budapest. 
I visited it for the first time a few days ago, it’s pure awesomeness. I couldn’t resist, I HAD TO buy a book (seriously, those books were like begging me to buy them, **note: don’t make eyecontact with attractive books before payday**). I also helped out another customer, who asked my opinion about another book.Oh, and after payday, I have to go back for an art album. :)This is a MUST SEE.They also have other gifts, like Magen David necklaces, Mazel Tov cards, keyrings, mezuzahs, candle sticks, seder plates, tzedakah boxes, etc.

Mizrach, 18th Century, Southern GermanyMizrah (Hebrew: מזרח “east”) is the Hebrew word for “east” and the direction that Jews in the Diaspora face during prayer. Jewish law prescribes that Jews face the site of the Temple in Jerusalem during prayer. Multicolored mizrah with two male figures flanking architectural frame with two columns decorated with chevron motif and supporting an arch topped by garlands; Hebrew inscription with large word in elaborate red block letters at center with texts above and below. Mizrach depicting Moses (to the right) and Aaron (left). The Hebrew inscription recites: הפתח בכל יום דלתות שערי מזרח (“He who opens every day the doors of the gates of the East”), a reference to the liturgical poem, “Hakol yadun,” for the Yotzer blessing (or “blessing of creation”) of the Sabbath morning prayers in the Ashkenazi liturgy; and מצד זה רוח חיים (“from this side [comes] the spirit of life”), four words composing the acronym, מזרח (“mizrach”).
