InSpire: Andy's culture market

For those of you who don't do Christmas, have their loved ones living too far away to include them in their holiday tour around the country there is more exciting stuff going on in the city of Amsterdam: check out Andy's culture market!

26, 27 and 28 of December at the Westergasterrein, all kinds of creative entrepreneurs gather to form a marketplace inspired by the London Bricklane market. There's indoor ice skating, vintage clothing, books, vinyl, a place to trade your own clothing, a multicultural food bazaar, live music, poetry, art, and much more! And best of all, overall admission is free ;-)  So if you are looking to have a good time coming week: See you at Andy's culture market or at one of our Amsterdam stores?

The shops in Amsterdam and Antwerp will be open all boxing day (2nd Christmas day in the Netherlands):

Antwerp & Magna Plaza:          12:00-18:00 hrs.
Bilderdijkstraat 194:                         10:30-19:00 hrs.

InWindow: Seasons Greetings from Antwerp

Holidays are coming, holidays are coming..... ding dong ding dong! It's all glitter and glamor in our shop windows. A more festive vibe can hardly be imagined. No need to buy Christmas decoration if you can BE the Christmas deco yourself! Right?! Twinkle twinkle little star scarfs, shiny blouses and glitzy dresses will match perfectly with a gourmet holiday dinner table. Just make sure not to turn into Rudolf the red nose reindeer ;-)

Have a wonderful and joyful holiday season. Seasons greetings from all of us at JUTKA & RISKA. X

OnLine: Antwerp store featured on Cosebelle

Cosebelle is an Italian blog about beautiful things and it seems like we had a good hair day, cause they featured our Antwerp store on their site! Our Italian is not outstanding, we know the basics (espresso, cappuccino, prosecco, Armani, Gucci and Versace), but that does not mean that we feel honored to be featured on the Cosebelle blog and that it is still fun to check out the photos they took of our store.

OnScreen: Our film debut

It's unbelievable but true, we never wished for a career in the movies but we are glad we can share our very first time on screen with you ;-) Even though we do perform all our own stunts, don't expect too much spectacle. The films are fun though, anything you always wanted to know about the city of Antwerp featuring our store on the Nationalestraat. If you won't be hanging out in the lobbies of Antwerp hotels any time soon, you can check the clips online:

We love to have more of these perfect photoshoot days.

InWindow: For all Dutchies some pics from the colorful south

Soon the Sint will enter our stores, so we already started dressing up the shop windows to his liking (we think, of course you are never sure). Of course we are aiming for a little pressy in our shoes ;-) In the mean time we hope you will like it too. Primary colors, games, accessories and some cabbages for his horse? We hope horses read STOP signs just as well? Time to get some carrots and sugar lumps out for our next post, to enhance our chances ;-)

Tomorrow we will put our little wishlist on the blog!
