magic of online retail



I’ve been contemplating for a while on one very old but obsessive idea…something I wanted to create, but never found a physical space for. Now the world of internet comes in handy, it’s giving out virtual spaces almost free of charge.

So I’m putting together an online boutique – simple, basic, but very much loved and tended with care. I’m searching for deco objects, music, zines, apparel, silkscreen prints and handmade accessories. I’m very inspired by the north, infested with private online shops where, mostly women, sell all the lovely stuff they create. Mommies on a parental leave, yeah, but all with the best artistic education ever…just check varpunen.bigcartel.com for instance.
Annie Larson is my idol too, and the humble Stand Up Comedy boutique from Portland, Oregon.
I plan to function in themed editions and a small selection, right enough for the moment in time. And the best way to know when and where it will happen, watch this space!

Today I felt like I needed to breath the cold digital winter air…I felt that my current position in blogosphere was suffocating me…I took a ride out into the infinite snowy fields and filled my lungs anew…and I felt that I needed to share.

This is a more personal and honest part of what I do. I run an image blog ± (Various Sources) on Tumblr, write a good old fashion blog .origami mon ami since 2006, and since recently publish a fashion fanzine Various Sources. All Brussels-based, I’m no globe-trotter, although I do explore the Northern part of the Old Continent with immense pleasure.

I want to share what I think, see, like, wear, buy, want, make, do, visit, love, know, discover, find, lose, keep, get, give, take, share
