Kringloopwinkels in the Netherlands are very usefull when you kneed cheap furniture or other things when you start with nothing in a new environment. Pottera has a very usefull collection of Kringloop adresses in Maastricht.
But, as the blog I Prefer Paris so beautifully illustrates, beauty and art are to be found everywhere.
Reading about Bongo art at TEFAF in the economist:
“Tall, fragile and unknowable, they are a symbol of scholarship and history. This is the kind of original speciality that shows the Maastricht art fair at its best.”
