the Otherist

Well its finally here a post in english as the owner’s of this awesome quirky store are english speaking ;)
For all of those who have always been a bit different and look back to the old ages and
think how cool it would be to have your own Cabinet of Curiosities;
I have found the perfect spot.

If you have no idea on what a “cabinet of curiosities” is:
A cabinet of curiosities was an encyclopedic collection in Renaissance Europe of types of objects whose categorical boundaries were yet to be defined. Modern terminology would categorize the objects included as belonging to natural history (sometimes faked), geology, ethnography, archaeology, religious or historical relics, works of art (including cabinet paintings) and antiquities. “The Kunstkammer was regarded as a microcosm or theater of the world, and a memory theater.

The Otherist is also the ideal place to get a cool present that is a “tikje anders” ,
like we would say in holland.When you walk in to the store you feel like you have walked into Proffessor Kirk his house (The chronicles of Narnia) with a modern twist.

The owners started 5 years ago and since then they have made
it their mission to travel the globe to bring
to us here at the heart of amsterdam what
theyconsider “the other” unique,
one of a kindartifacts in combination with
the  finding of a great group of stunning artists and designers.

So what do they offer?
A whole range of things going from modern day design into
the curious Victorian ages.
There is no other way to describe it then: for you to see it by yourself either:
