With the acquisition of ’t Lutje Winkeltje in August 2018 a long cherished wish by Royal Goedewaagen has been fulfilled. A wish to increase the visibility of the brand Royal Goedewaagen and its handicrafts. By that, we wish to increase the visibility in particular in the Northern parts of the Netherlands. Hereby, we hope to create a positive movement of international tourists towards the Northern parts of the Netherlands.
‘t Lutje Winkeltje is an established name in the historic fortress village Bourtange and has a rich history of its own. The new shop’s name is an honor to the former shop’s name and will therefore be called: ‘t Lutje Winkeltje by Royal Goedewaagen. The name suggests that it is a traditional shop, but do not let the name fool you. ‘t Lutje Winkeltje by Royal Goedewaagen is an innovative concept and an extraordinary addition to the current Royal Goedewaagen group. We offer more than just the regular assortment of Royal Goedewaagen. Besides the well-known silhouette vases, unique miniatures and traditional Delft Blue one can actually experience our traditional handicrafts by taking a quick look in our painter’s studio. While enjoying a freshly brewed cup of coffee or tea, and obviously something sweet on the side, one can experience in real time how our products are being painted by hand. ‘t Lutje Winkeltje by Royal Goedewaagen stands for a unique experience, craftsmanship and traditional Dutch ambience. A shop, a painter’s studio and a coffee bar all together in one.
Curious about the end result? ’t Lutje Winkeltje by Royal Goedewaagen will open its doors by the end of the year. You are more than welcome to come and visit!
