Wondrous


On Saturday I drove up to Amsterdam for lunch with a friend and to check out the Wunderkammer's Shop for a Week, a temporary store set up bi-annually by florist and decorator duo Florian Seyd and Ueli Singer in different locations in Amsterdam. As the name implies, the store is only open for ten days at a time (although this time we were treated to an extension due to popular demand) and contains an abundance of treasures for the home and garden. Imagine everything from beautiful vases, horns set on a base of crystals, beautiful tableware, exotic stuffed birds showcased in bell jars, and rare corals on decorative bases. Just like a proper Wunderkammer (see our earlier post on the subject). I was entranced, but dismayed by the prices. Until I discovered their online store which featured a few more affordable gems. But even if, like me, you're not looking to buy, the visit is fun and inspirational. Already looking forward to next year. For more information, check out their website.
