Expat Life: De Kringloper

I've told you we rented a storage room during six months when we came to Tussen de Vaarten. During this periode, I gave away most of the things to some friends of ours... the big cleaning time, remember?

We also could have sold the things we didn't need anymore to a second hand store like De Kringloper.
We can find it in Almere, Naarden, Hilversum and Weesp.



I was there for the first time last week with my Dutch friend Monique.

I went there to buy a lamp for the living room and I got this one for € 25.

I also bought a Dutch children's book for 50 cents...

and a can for € 2,50.

Another option is Marktplaats. We've sold there a table and two chairs, remember?

Have you bought or sold something in De Kringloper or in Marktplaats?

Do you like to go to second hand stores?

Destes sitios é que eu gosto!!!! Estou a planear com uns amigos uma ida é Feira da Ladra. Vou à procura de peças para o meu presépio (um dos.... tem mais de 50 anos!!). Passamos lá a manhã e depois almoçamos numa tasquinha que faz uma comida bem tipica à portuguesa. Deliciosa e barata!!!!! E os donos são um show....

Bjs Sandra, gostei do livro.....

I haven't really tried Kringloper but Marktplaats works well with us.
