29 Nov 2014 Postcrossing "Let's explore new postcard shops in Amsterdam" meeting - Full for now but you can still sign up for the waiting list! :) 29-11-2014


COUNTRY: Netherlands
CITY/REGION: Amsterdam
DATE: 29 november 2014
TIME: 11:00 - 19:00
LOCATION: in front of the Victoria Hotel, opposite Amsterdam Central Station at Prins Hendrikkade. Nextdoor is a little souvenirshop where they also sell postcards.

We'll be a group of max. 15 Postcrossers. The idea is to explore another area than the places we usually visit on Postcrossing meetings.
I found some nice shops, also postcard shops, in the Haarlemmerbuurt.

So we'll meet at 11 in front of the Victoria Hotel, opposite Amsterdam Central Station at Prins Hendrikkade. Nextdoor is a little souvenirshop where they also sell postcards.
Then we'll walk to the Haarlemmerbuurt and explore the shops, buy postcards, snack something, buy more postcards.

Depending on how much time we have, there are some options of places to visit nearby the restaurant. Maybe some more shopping or visit the Oude Kerk http://www.oudekerk.nl/ or museum Ons' Lieve Heer op Solder http://www.opsolder.nl/

Then, somewhere in the afternoon, we'll be heading to the restaurant. for an early dinner. We'll have some food and write and sign postcards and chat.
I made a reservation at 16:30 for restaurant Dabka at Ouderzijdse Kolk.

The max. amount of postcards each attendant can bring for signing by us all is 10 (a bit more is not a problem but don't bring big piles since we write them while having dinner).
Because the meeting is "explore new postcard shops", my advise is to choose cards at home, because I can't tell at forehand what kind of postcard shops we will visit.

I expect the meeting to be over at around 19:00.

There is also a Facebook group for this meeting but all information will be put here as well, you are free to join (it's in Dutch): https://www.facebook.com/groups/613645132080185/
That's also why some of the participants on the list didn't write here, because they sigend up on the facebook group, which is fine too.

So sign up either here or in the group. All fine! :thumbup:

Participants:
1. Jetske
2. AnnabelK
3. Sophie54
4. yoga
5. StrawBerryBlossom (signed up via PM)
6. Lotty
7. Engel69
8. Yelle
9. Marifran
10. helenafl
11. tanja
12. Anoushka Rood
13. Goldfish2465
14. Icitaiwan (maybe)
15. Nipi (waiting for confirmation)

Waiting list:
1.
2.
3.
etc..

On 27th of October I will be sending a message to everyone who is on the list as "maybe" to ask them if they can come or not. I would like to receive a reply to this message on the 1st of November. Who hasn't responded on the 1st of November will be removed from the list and people from the waiting list will be moved to the participants list.

That went fast!

We're already 15, but don't hesitate to sign up since there are several people on "maybe" status so you will be put on the waiting list and possibly added to the attendants list if someone cancels! :)

Hello,

I'm organizing the Montreal meet on Nov 22nd, and was wondering if you'd like to swap meet card? I could send you one from our meet and you send me one from yours.

I've been collecting meet card since that first one I've received last year from Jetske - I blame her!:P

Thanks in advance,

Stinkypaw =^..^=
