Even more lovely in person, thank you! This is a great store. Note: if you live in the United States, packages may take up to four weeks to arrive. (But they are worth the wait!)
The Original Vintage and the Unique Handmade
Welcome to SROK! It all started years ago - a combination of my husband Gert's love of paper and my lifelong passion for anything creative has resulted not only in our (commercial) webshop in The Netherlands, aimed at selling mostly Dutch material to Dutch collectors, but also in my 3 shops here on Etsy.
This particular shop sells all the duplicate ads from Gert's personal, private and extensive collection (about 100.000 different ads from a variety of countries - mostly American, English, French, German and of course Dutch, collected over a period of about 20 years).
Our ads are mostly dated from the late 1800's up to the early 1970s and are taken from a variety of international newspapers and magazines. All this involves a lot of shifting, carrying, cutting, sorting and filing, and it's hard work, but we love it!
I also run two other Etsy shops - BBees, selling handmade jewelry and accessories for children and teenagers:
and Squish, a magical world of quirky and colourful needle felted creatures:
You can read all about me at my other two shops. I also write a blog about my creative activities, which you can read here:
Enjoy your visit and thanks for dropping by! We hope you'll love the things you find as much as we enjoyed finding and/or making them!
