About the author
As a twenty-five year old writer, hummusaddict, night decorator, Master student, secret girlfriend of James Franco and lover of thick books, I totally agree with the saying that wolves don't lose sleep over the opinion of sheep.

Some phenomenons you respect but don’t understand completely. For me that’s fashion week. It truly intrigues me how a 19th century Red Cross nurse can translate to a silhouette on the street these days, or how comfort and clothes seem to fear each other. So, when it comes to season my wardrobe I stick to the ever-good vintage shops. Especially the small ones where I can easily wander around and search after unique things that might suit me. Within this feminine world I present to you my newly popped up favourite: Trash to Treasure.


Do second hand pieces ever make you wonder who wore them? Out of this curiosity Leanne and Caroline created their concept. On every item you find a small history of the belonged. Written on a cosy card you discover how a type machine was found on grandma’s ceiling or green pumps from Paris after a long walk were after all a little too small. The previous owners of the misfits are named on a wall, so you can even thank them for say your new nightly hat. And this means you can be the seller too!

Until you drop

Searching for a place the duo ended up in a kitchern above creative café The House of Rising. This unique place is translated in relaxed opening hours, which means they’re open until 9pm. That’s already one good to reason to step by. Besides that they’ll be part of events (Los van de Kudde) and have an official opening next Thursday. So whether runaways are right or wrong, and an outfit can keep you pretty or warm, Trash to Treasure proves that shopping can be a real experience.
