POP UP SHOP AT PANTOUFLE
INVITATION FOR THE FIRST PETITE PASSPORT POP UP STORE AT PANTOUFLE IN ROTTERDAM.
Since the launch of the guides in 2015, I’ve been working behind the scenes most of the time. I travel the world to bundle the most amazing design addresses in a series of travel guides, but there’s more involved if you self-publish books. Negotiate with the printer, carrying countless boxes of 10k up and down and hoping that people love the books just as much as I did create them.
Nothing can make me happier than a message telling me how much you like the guide(s) or a specific spot in them. The only thing is that I rarely ever meet you personally and I think that’s a shame. Because the people I do meet immediately feel like friends. I think because we all have the same passion for design travel and therefore can chat for hours about where we’ve been and where we’d like to go.
Okay: long story short. On Saturday I will be working ‘before the scenes’ as I’m organizing a small pop up store at Pantoufle, my favorite store in my hometown Rotterdam. I will bring along a stack of guides, my new photography prints (see picture) and postcards so I can give you an extra tip of where to go. Pantoufle sells the most amazing design gifts, so it’s the ideal Christmas shopping destination.
Of course, I know you live all over the world and we haven’t invented a Mary-Poppins-snapping-your-fingers-and-you-will-be-on-the-other-side-of-the-world-without-a- jetlag just jet, but everyone who is in Rotterdam on Saturday, feel free to come. I’d love to meet you! Where? Pantoufle, Vijverhofstraat 100 – 102, Rotterdam (from 11 am – 5 pm).
