We're Moving, again

Hi everyone,

Just a quick note to let all of you know that we have moved, again. We really enjoyed our office / warehouse for the past 2 years, but we have outgrown it! Also, I had to commute 2 hours a day to get there, which started to become rather unpleasant.

We have moved into a beautiful, new, large warehouse. I will upload some pictures shortly. We'll officially move in next week.

Want to keep up with what I do throughout the week? Then follow me on Twitter

Before I forget, Happy Easter to all of you!

Important TNT Update

Hi everybody,

I was informed today by TNT that they are no longer offering STANDARD shipping. Unfortunately, this means that all packages will have to be shipped with their PRIORITY service. I find this a very strange decision, but I can't change the rules here.

We have made a deal with UPS and can offer you very low rates. Packages that are shipped with UPS arrive within 2 business days (depending on your location) and one of the most important things: you know where your package is at all times due to their tracking system.

Our system should be updated with the new TNT rates after the weekend.

Bikes & Accessories

We have noticed a demand for typically Dutch folding bikes lately. You ask, we deliver! We have added a selection of beautiful, sturdy folding bikes at affordable prices.

While you're at it, why not upgrade your bike with our accessories? Perhaps a Delfts Blue Bike Cap, Bicycle Basket, or custom Bicycle Bell is something for you?

A new year..new plans

Hi guys,

I can't believe it's 2010 already. Where did 2009 go? I do remember that the final quarter of 2009 was very, very busy. But that's a good thing. I like it best when it's busy.

The year 2009 has been a year of new ventures for us. We started shippping frozen Dutch food and Dutch vla, as well as fresh Dutch ready-made meals. This has been a very exciting process and we're happy that we took that plunge into the unknown. We can finally satisfy your urges for Kroketten, Bitterballen, and Frikandellen.

We also did our very first fair in the fall of 2009, the Expatica Fair, which was a very useful experience. We met loads of interesting people and learned a lot.

2009 was also a year of new business relationships. We started a partnership with Sunflowerjewels, who have created a unique line of Delfts Blue jewelry exclusively for us. We're selling unique, handmade in Holland, leather baby slippers from Baby Dutch.

We have more plans for 2010! Keep your eyes open for a whole new website design of Typical Dutch Stuff and a line of unique and original products.

I want to end this post with a picture I took just before we left Holland for a short Christmas vacation to Tenerife, Spain.
