What I bought at the Søstrene grene store in Rotterdam, Netherlands

I had mentioned before that a Søstrene grene store would open in Rotterdam and not too long after the opening, I paid it a visit. The store is not very big, but they have managed to utilize every inch of store space to showcase a lot of pretty things. It feels a bit like visiting the IKEA, since they have created a walking path through the whole store and along the way, you just keep seeing things that you want to buy.

I really like drawing and with the coloring books for adults trend, I just couldn't leave without these beautiful color markers (18 markers, €2.79).

I have always wanted to try one of these scalp massagers (€1.69) and it may be cheaper if I bought it online, but it was mainly an impulse buy and I might have not gotten it if I saw it online. Also, the toothbrushes looked so cute because of the packaging and with the price of just €0.57 each, I just bought two without much thinking.

I have seen these pretty rose gold/copper clothes hangers a lot on Pinterest and Instagram and I have always wondered where they got them. I could have just asked them, but I was too shy. Luckily, I stumbled on one in the Søstrene grene store, for €1.22. I bought only one to check if it has good quality, before I decide to buy a lot more. I also saw these in a silver color for just €0.19, but it didn't look a beautiful as this one.

I like drinking loose green tea and I am starting to get annoyed with the small, metal tea egg, which is such an hassle to clean. I had bought a small sieve at the Flying Tiger store to replace it, but it doesn't fit on my tea pot. I found these long paper tea filters (€1.78) that I had also seen, when I ordered a glass of green tea at New Fork, a lunchroom in Rotterdam (I can really recommend the green tea there and the delicious sandwiches and baguettes).

For small pieces of fruit and canapés, these colorful plastic forks (12 pieces, €0.97) would be great to have.

Close to the exit of the store, I found a lot of different kinds of loose tea that you could fill a bag with yourself for €1.18 per bag. They smelled really good. I thought about getting the Baileys black tea and the mango flavor, but I bought the sencha lemon and sencha rhubarb instead, as it is the safest bet. I prefer green teas over black tea any day, although there are some exceptions.

At the cash registers, you can find many woven tote bags and shoe bags in different colors. These shoe bags (28x38cm, €0.72) are great for when I go on vacation. I got one in baby blue and one in turquoise.

Lastly, I couldn't pass the sweet smelling candy section without getting some. I bought an Anna and Clara strawberry stick (in Dutch: aardbeistok) and summer stick (in Dutch: Zomerstok) for €0.73 each. The strawberry stick didn't have a soft filling and it had such a strange taste that I couldn't even finish it.The summer stick was a lot better with a soft (lemon?) center and a chewy strawberry exterior. It isn't the best I had, as I prefer the flavors to be more outspoken. The strawberry was too bland and the center wasn't sour enough.

Lastly, there were a lot of colorful lollipops that you can choose from (for just €0.08 each) and I bought one with a lime flavor and one with a rainbow flavor, which tasted like a tropical candy flavor. I really liked it and they would be a great treat for children (and the boyfriends and husbands with a sweet tooth) who needed (or were forced!) to accompany you, while you spend so much time in the store.
