Another guy from the Netherlands

Unread postby Greene » Fri Sep 08, 2017 7:34 am  

Hey guys I'm Michael from the Netherlands.
I started collecting items from casinos, which also means alot of playing cards besides all chips and merchandise.
Personally I think it's hard to buy nice cards back in the Netherlands as there are just 2 stores which I know of who sell (non-standard or crap) cards. Unfortunately, the stores are too far away for me to visit. As I travel for work, almost all my cards are bought in London.
I'm also backing multiple playing cards kickstarter projects. Shipping costs are high, but theres no other way.

Portfolio52 has been filled with some cards I own and I still should add some new decks to it.

Hey Michael, welcome to the UC!

This seller on ebay is from the Netherlands and he might occasionaly have some interesting finds, mostly vintage decks. Nothing that spectacular right now however it seems. Still, he is a guy that you might check out occasionaly, if you are into vintage decks as well.

Edit: Also, good online stores in Europe are:
https://jpgamesltd.co.uk/. in the UK. Members here sometimes get special deals from them, such as free decks.
https://www.cartesmagie.com/. in France. They have right now discounts for large orders it seems.
https://spielkartenshop.com/. in Germany. They have quite a large ammount of decks to choose from.

I dream of a world where wars are fought only by having dance offs. I also dream that a Finnish playing card designer would exist. The former seems more likely to happend.

Thanks for the links Räpylätassu, very helpfull!
I'll definitely keep an eye on those links you gave.

There are some dutch online shops like Astonish.nl, Magicshop.nl and despeelkaarten.nl but i think their stock variety isn't enough.
And of course, seeing cards and feeling them before buying is always the best :-)

Thank you
Greene
