Next Monday is Queen’s Day (Koninginnedag) here in Holland. It’s a national holiday and a big party all day for most people. You are also allowed to sell things on the street. People get up early tape off a square of the pavement and set up shop. I’m going down to Amstelveen with neighbours to sell goods together. I’m selling hand made bags and purses made from stash scraps.
Here’s some shots of the first few – no straps yet and ‘scuse the wrinkles!
A good way to use up scraps.
Me and the better half have also had some fun making jingles for the radio show I co-host on Mondays, English Breakfast Radio. Amsterdam’s only English language radio show. (That’s him looking all mysterious and sexy in the photos next to the track!)
They’re for two of our regular segments: Dutchies You Should Know (Particular Dutch people of interest) and Around the World (The quirky, the strange, the downright hilarious news stories from around the world).
Hope they make you smile.
