when you have kids you know they grow out of their toys almost as quickly as they grow out of their clothes.
A second hand market is the best place to be when you are looking for some ‘new’ clothes and toys, or when you are looking for a fun and friendly way to give your old clothes and toys a new home.
On Kingsday we went to a local vrijmarkt ‘freemarket’ where neighbours come to buy and sell their stuff, and where kids turn into true merchants; making money by advertising their salesware, by making music, painting nails and faces, or simply by showing off their tricks.
we set out in the morning, our bikes loaded with stuff , and returned in the afternoon, with a little less stuff; sold a lot and bought some ‘new’ toys too! The rest of the afternoon the kids enjoyed their new toys together with their friends.
Let’s do this again next year.
