Last year I invited several ladies I know through Instagram, for a tea in my garden. One of them was Ella.
Ella and her friends Suus and Lenny own a colourful shop in the town centre of Gouda, called Juffrouw Saartje.
They sell vintage items, toys, cards, porcelain, books and many more products to colour your life happy.
At the party a friend and I promised we would come and see the shop for ourselves. Last week we finally did. You can see the photo's below. Ella and Suus, thank you once again for your warm welcome and the delicious tea.
My friend and I combined our visit with a city walk. We walked along the canals, visited several courtyard houses and the area around the St Janskerks (St Johns church). What an impressive town it is. If you are interested in medieval architecture, there are some fine examples of medieval buildings, like the town hall, to be seen.
The above photo's were partly taken at Altijd, a beautiful vintage and antique shop in the same street as Juffrouw Saartje (Wilhelminastraat).
For more information, please click on the names of the shops.
Before I wish you a happy week, I would like to thank you for your sweet comments on last weeks post.
