Second-hand shopping is better for the environment and your wallet. Whether you go for a colorfully laid table or a sleek layout: there is a unique pearl for everyone. Where to buy the most beautiful second-hand glasses and crockery? Culy has collected the best addresses.
Offline and online of course.
No sense, time, or possibility to go offline? Then we can wholeheartedly recommend an online search. On Marktplaats, of course. Be efficient with some more specific search terms. Try terms like vintage glasses , retro tableware , or search for a particular decade. Looking for a specific design item? Then also check Catawiki . Etsy.com is packed with unique trinkets in the tableware, glasses and cutlery category, as well as for an ultra cozy decoration of the rest of your dining table and kitchen.
The new window shopping naturally takes place on Instagram. The channel is full of delicious vintage finds, curated by sympathetic small entrepreneurs who deserve support anyway. How about La Louème , Rêveuse and Joué (also located on the Westerstraat in Amsterdam!). Important warning beforehand: this is going to make you extremely greedy.
If the measures allow it, the flea market is still the place for the best (and most affordable) finds. And, not unimportant, for a good story and a bowl of conviviality. Check this calendar to see if there is one near you. Nothing nearby? Perhaps on this website . Afterwards, check out our tips on how to best prepare your table. That will be a breeze with your second-hand glasses and crockery.
Shops for second-hand glasses and crockery
Not finished shopping after the above tips? A well-kept secret is Vintage by Maan on the Elandsgracht in Amsterdam. Every week a load of fresh finds arrives from France, carefully selected during many a flea market trip. Think of filled eggshells and Luminarc champagne and wine glasses in all colors of the rainbow. But also atmosphere-enhancing Max Verboeket carnival glassware in every shape and size imaginable. More of the classic stamp? Then you probably won’t get bored at Wempe & Wempe in The Hague.
For a smaller budget, you can always go to the thrift store. Do you live in a big city? Then take the train or car to one that is outside the city. Just a little less crockery hijackers on the coast.
And have you finally picked up a set of sparkling cocktail glasses? We have also collected the best decorating tips for you.
