Ari

Second hand mayhem!

Ari is the guy responsible for this great shack of second hand mayhem. This place offers everything Ari can get his hands on during his trips through the Dutch countryside as well as some Eastern European countries. It’s so packed with stuff there’s almost no space left for customers. So wiggle your butt in there, have a look and say hello to Ari!

Useless fact:
the street where Ari is located is called the Overtoom. This street once was the main road for pilgrims who wanted to visit the ‘Amsterdam Miracle’. Long story short: Apparently in 1345 a dying man puked out his last dinner,including a ‘hostie’ ( symbolic of the body of Christ) given to him by the pastor. The puke and hostie were thrown into the fireplace but instead of burning, the hostie started ‘floating’ above the flames. The hostie was given to the priest but was found in the fireplace again the next day. Not once but twice did holy hostie return to its previous habitat! Enough proof for the Roman Catholic church that it was the presence of Jesus ( body of Christ ). A miracle was born!!
Nowadays there are still people making the pilgrimage in honour of the holy hostie ( 7000 people in 2010 ). It takes place on the first night from Saturday to Sunday after the 15th of March if you wanna join.
