Our website was over six year’s old and we hadn’t kept it up to date as well as we should
have. Therefore, we are in the process of constructing a whole new one with more accurate
data. However, with the Tulip Festival coming up, it probably won’t be ready to go until close
to the end of May. Just be patient. We haven’t forgotten about it. In the meantime, you can
“like” us on Facebook and get a flavor of what we are all about.
For those of you who don’t know what Staart Winkel means, it means street shop and it will be located in the street market just north of the Court House in Orange City during the Tulip Festival. This is a building that was built for the Tulip Festival and will be moved onto the street that will be closed off for the Dutch Street market for three days during the Tulip Festival. We were very happy to enter into an agreement with the Steering Committee to take over running the shop. To help us with this project, Juliana, my daughter, will be flying in from San Diego to help us. She is a software computer engineer and will help us especially with any technology issues we may have. She is also the disc golfer that I am always talking about to those of you who buy discs in our store. So, please come visit us this May 18, 19 or 20 either at our store, which is located just north of the children’s rides, or at the Straat Winkel, just north of the Court House.
New Dutch Imports
This week we are anticipating a very large order from our Dutch Import source, just in time for the Tulip Festival. Of course we always carry a good supply of wooden shoes, i.e. plain ones, red mill ones and farmers design, or traditional. We have a few pair of wedding shoes, also. Remember, if you are taking part in the festival we give a discount on your shoes. We also carry wooden shoe clogs and wooden shoe slippers. We are getting a large order of new Delft items as well as a new supply of Dutch food. We should be well supplied for all the visitors we are expecting in Orange City.
The first night of RAGBRAI will start in Orange City this year. We’ll have more information on that in the next newsletter. For those of you not familiar with this, RAGBRAI stands for Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa. This is an activity that the Des Moines Register started 45 years ago and brings thousands of people to Iowa.
Perusing our Guest Book
This month we had people from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Nevada, North Carolina, Oregon, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Washington, and of course, Iowa.
