The oldest retail company in Deventer happens to be this quaint little shop called, De Deventer Borstelwinkel, selling everything brushes (Dutch: borstel), dating back to 1860.
This authentic retail establishment is known for its extensive collection of 200 types of brushes and brooms in countless shapes and sizes. All made from natural materials! Think of animal hair such as pigs, horses, goats, or ostrich feathers and plant fibers. So, I have heard!
Personally, I have never been inside this store. I have only admired the shop window and peeked through it. I can only imagine the bursting atmosphere of yesteryears inside this shop!
De Deventer Borstelwinkel opens exclusively once a week, every Saturday from 11am – 5pm.
Address: Menstraat 7. 7411 EX Deventer.
Opening Hours: Only Saturdays from 11am – 5pm.
