Keep an eye out on this blog, our newsletter & social media for more announcements about our anniversary weekend! Or scroll down for the full schedule!

The Chairmen at Work

Are you ready for some relaxation? Then come by for a chair massage from The Chairmen at Work! During our party weekend, they will give short massages of 15 minutes, but with a special story. What makes The Chairmen at Work unique is that all masseurs have a visual impairment. Due to the loss of a sense, the masseurs are very empathetic and have more focus on the person being massaged. A chair massage from The Chairmen at Work stands for total relaxation and inspiration.

Skincare demo by Food For Skin

On both days of our anniversary party, you have the chance to meet our brand new skincare brand Food For Skin. During a skincare demo, you will be able to try their no-nonsense and 100% natural skincare products.

Spoken Agency

On Saturday we will have a poët from the Spoken Agency in our store. Within 10 minutes the poët will ask you some questions to get to know you and write a short poem, especially for you!

Rope making with nettle

Natasja van der Meer is the writer of “Het Brandnetelboek”. In this book, you will read about all the things you can do with nettle. She will bring some examples of the products she has made with nettle, but you also join in on the workshop. In this workshop, Natasja will teach you how to make rope from nettle.

Skincare demo by CÎME

Just like last year, we will have an expert present from one of our favourite skincare brands CÎME. In a 20-minute 1-on-1 demo she will advise you on the perfect care for your skin. Is your skin crying for some attention? Make sure to book your spot for this facial treatment by calling our store: +316 428 571 31.

Woodblock printing by Kings Of Indigo

Create your own scarf or bandana during the woodblock printing workshop by Kings Of Indigo. With custom-designed wooden stamps and natural indigo, you can make your unique koi carp printed bandana. Did you know that Kings Of Indigo has even used this printing technique in a few of their designs? Now is your chance to try it out yourself!

Tastings

A party without snacks and drinks isn’t a real party! That is why there will be plenty of deliciousness in our store on both days. In addition to a nice glass of prosecco and delicious vegan & gluten-free cakes, some of our brands will have tastings in the store.

Have you always wanted to know what jam tastes like that can’t be called jam because it contains too much fruit and too little sugar? Then you should come by during the tasting of Potverdorie!. If you’re looking for a little more spice, it’s best to stop by to try the salsas from El Jefe or the ginger drink from Gimber.

Or experience tea on a whole new level during the tasting of Tea Sommelier Mariëlla Erkens. She is the author of the book, “Tea, Wine’s Sober Cousin.”

Movie & Popcorn

Do you want to hear the stories behind our fashion brands? During the weekend we will display a video with content from our biggest fashion brands. You can enjoy this movie while eating some delicious and freshly made popcorn by our brand A-dam Underwear.
