If you follow me on facebook you must have seen some ridiculously large filled shopping carts recently from my visits to Loods 5. And quite frankly I cannot believe why I haven’t shared some of those finds with you here. Maybe because I usually don’t run around with a camera in the shop. This time however I decided that I needed to distract myself a little bit. A girl has to do what she has to do in order to prevent herself from buying too many props. And believe me; when you end up at Loods 5 in Zaandam, you’re bound to come back with too many goods.
A word of warning first though. It’s a huge store and consists of many, many little stores within. That also means you can find really cheap things and also ridiculously overpriced items. The fun is to find the good items that don’t cost half your monthly salary. And you will be able to find those. in fact; I struggle leaving the store without at least a few items that I desperately ‘need’. They recently opened up a vintage department on the second floor and to be honest I find that a bit of a disappointment. Yes there are some cool things, but they are in the overpriced category. There is no way I am willing to pay 50 euro for an old wooden chair. And maybe it’s just not the kind of things that I go crazy about in general. But always fun to browse around the old stuff and who knows, you might run into that one thing you’ve been looking for for ages.
Now the most dangerous part for me is the new huge kitchen area… With soooo many pretty bowls! You see the ones in the picture above? That is just a small selection of what they have in store. The ovendishes on the bottom left are my newest addiction and I have quite a selection of them. But they’re so pretty and I love that little sculpted edge. I was brave not to buy any this time though. I haven’t even used the ones I bought last time so that means I cannot buy new ones until that has happened… (I can set myself really weird rules sometimes)
