I have seen many thrift stores in my life. Some of them big, some small, some horrible, some amazing, some were cheap...others incredibly expensive... The variety in thrift stores is HUGE! My experience is that you should give every TS a chance, because you will never know what you may find...you just have to know how to look. This is why I made a 'guide' on how to thrift a while ago, with some tips&trics on finding those hidden treasures. As I am from the center of the country, I mostly go thrifting in the Randstad. But the other day, when I was with family up north, I visited the local thrift store Het Goed in Emmen.
I think this has to be one of the best thrift stores in The Netherlands. It's big, clean, various and cozy! They actually put some thought into making the store more appealing, by assorting the merchandise by category and color. Which works great! The clothing area almost looks like a vintage shop and the furniture is neatly organized by era and make. The atmosphere and vibe over there is just so great, you can easily spend hours of your time there. The perfect location for a day trip. Because to top it off, they even have a snack corner where you can order all different kinds of delicacies for baby prices. I say; go check it out when you're in the neighborhood!
Oh and I'll be showing you my purchases very soon!
