We come from a trading family that dates back to 1885 in Utrecht, The
For those who are not familiar with the Dutch Language, the
advertisements were published in the Utrecht’s Newspaper written by
Granddad starting at age 19.
My grandparents ran several businesses including selling butter
(Butterhouse), mussels and herring. Also eggs, cheese, tea, coffee and
Initiated in 1897 by Grandma, the daughter of a brush maker, they
simultaneous started a Bazaar next door, the first general / super store
in Utrecht, offering all kinds of household items like alarm clocks,
blankets, buckets, brushes, brooms, coffee grinders, you name it.
All their 5 children helped in the fish smelly ice cold storage with
cleaning, packaging and making deliveries to clients and wholesalers.
Their stores were also a neighborhood gathering place for local event
The old horse tram that connected the city with the rural south started
and ended in front of their shops, situated just outside the the old
city walls and toll bridge. Next door was a large and lively tavern Café
The Swan welcoming thirsty traders, farmers and travelers.
On the other side a pharmacy opened during the First World War where my
father as an unpaid apprentice learned the pharmacy trade and
photography. After the First WW Dad immigrated to Indonesia and opened
his own pharmacy and after the Second WW another in Amersfoort, The
The Bazaar was extended by my 2 uncles who during the 2nd world war were

stacking them between double walls and delivering them to the
