Steven van Helsdingen opened his brand new Kringloop West - A second-hand department store in Amsterdam West in March 2021. From clothing to furniture and from LPs to books. Every Thrift / Vintage enthusiast can go here for sustainable shopping. Items picked up or delivered from the area are carefully selected, cleaned and, if necessary, tested before being placed in the store. Second-hand shopping should inspire too! A lot of attention is paid to the products. The clothes hang neatly by color and the prices are low, as you would expect from a thrift store.
The Kringloop will also expand underneath the store. Here you will soon find, for example, clothing, white goods, camping gear, etc. Now you can already go to the basement for clothing and the fitting rooms (the latter are made from old filing cabinets - super durable!)
Although the store is already open, they are also working hard to expand it further. In addition to the fashion department, there will also be a large book department, a music department where you can listen to records and order coffee or tea. Work is also underway on a bicycle workshop where retro racing bikes are built.
Kringloop West is much more than a thrift store. Here, work is being done on a vibrant center for sustainable initiatives. For example, local makers can register for their own workshop under Kringloop West. Think of clothing makers, upholsterers and people who breathe new life into second-hand products by upcycling them. Kringloop West is already working with a number of these local makers. The neighborhood will soon also be able to use a workshop underneath the store. This is set up in such a way that people can repair their own clothing and / or furniture with our tools / sewing machines.
“People are cleaning up due to corona, have a lot of stuff left and are looking for a good second, third or even fourth destination. Most Kringloop shops are full and do not accept items. You can come here because we have only just started. Said an enthusiastic Steven!
