I had a bit of a bad feeling when opening a package from amazon.co.uk on the day when i saw a sign in the window of my corner bookstore that announced that they would close within a month. The place has been empty for a while but since this summer there has been some activity inside which today has culminated in the opening of a new book store: INKT & OLIE
Lets hope that i and others will value this place more than amazon. so far it looks like they are doing everything they can to make this happen: long opening hours (till 20:00h), good quality tea (no tea bags but real loose leaf tea) and they will take orders for books by email. Good-bye amazon and congratulations to the owners:
with the too-complicated-to-remember first names Nadezjda and Anouk (thanks, daan!) …
Update (2018): Of course that place did not last, closed som time before we moved out of our appartment in teh summer of 2018 and was replaced by a coffee bar.
