Maartje van dem Noort + SWAH

Oh my, you'll love this shop and the things in it...Amsterdam is a direct train ride from where I live, only 4 hours away, and yet I rarely make the time to go there. This year I only visited once and stayed only 3 days -- clearly more time is needed in such a diverse and lovely city. Since discovering recently the lighting of Maartje van dem Noort sold in a shop called Store Without a Home or SWAH), I have vowed that next year I will definitely make time in my schedule to visit Amsterdam a few times and linger a bit more... There are so many creative people who live there and some have the sweetest ateliers and shops. I think I'll show you one now called Store Without a Home.

Store Without a Home is located at IJburglaan 354 in case you are currently in Amsterdam and want to catch a peek, though they are moving locations in January so check their blog for updates next year. I love how quirky and creative it looks - their products are whimsical and I imagine in person, a real delight to behold. I especially love the Hang Me Lightly pendant, Cloud stools, and the Paper Alarm Clock.
