Hollandse/Indische items te koop

Posted by Hally v. K. on April 23, 2018 at 2:25pm 0 Comments

For those who aren't aware of this yet, but there is the  'Fabric Depot' on SE 122nd and Stark in Portland where one can find some Dutch and Indonesian things. For instance: speculaas koekjes, dropjes, stroopwafels, sambals, kecaps and more. And around Christmas time there are plenty of TaaiTaai poppen among other things. They used to sell amandelbrood too but I haven't seen those in awhile. Jammer. I love them! So much for this tidbit.
