Hoi! Wij zijn Evelien en (hondje) Sjaakie.
Because my dog Sjaak makes me so happy, I named my company 'De Zaak van Sjaak'. An (online) shop where you can buy items for a uniek & personal home.
My love for beautiful things started to look more and more like a collection. Thanks to compliments from friends and family and the question what I mostly like to do? "De Zaak van Sjaak" was created.
From secondhand shop to living room
In recent years thrift shops have become more and more popular and I am very happy about that. This ensures that all these second-hand products are given a second (or third) life without the need for new raw materials.
By choosing a second-hand product, you easily opt for a more conscious and sustainable life. Still, it can be quite difficult to pick the real gems from the dusty thrift shops.
That's why I collect all these finds on my website and Instagram. So YOU don't have to search around in the thrift stores and still be able to buy these beautiful second-hand items.
Sustainability is very important to me, which is why I prefer to choose second-hand rather than buy something new. With a few small adjustments in your life, you can already live a lot more sustainably."
On instagram I show my sustainable research. Now and then I share some tips. At the moment I do this by driving as economically as possible for shopping/purchase and delivery. I make sure that packaging is reused or biodegradable and I don't use chemicals to refurbish furniture, for example.
In addition, I have pick-up point in Amsterdam, Haarlem, Zaandam, Opmeer and Velsen Noord where you can pick up purchased items. I give them to family so it can take a little longer before it is there. But this saves shipping costs and is also better for the environment.
