Shopping at Flying Tiger

EN

I was in Rotterdam for yarn and wool shopping when I suddenly spot Flying Tiger! I knew this shop was about to open very soon because each time I walk by their store it was still under construction. But now its finally open! And I of course went inside for a peek and maybe to open my wallet as well…

And yes I didn't come out the store empty handed. I’m surprised of how big their assortment is and how reasonable the price are. Being a student reasonable prices are great, right? They sell food, stationery, home deco’s, craft stuff (yarn!) and beauty stuff as well!

Lets check out my purchases shall we?

Ik was laatst in Rotterdam voor wol en garen inkopen (ik koop meestal bij de Wibra en Zeeman en soms bij Pipoos) en zag dat Flying Tiger open was! Ik liep vaak langs hun huidige pand en destijds waren ze nog aan het verbouwen. Maar hij is eindelijk open! Ik ging natuurlijk naar binnen toe om een kijkje te nemen en wellicht iets te kopen…  

En inderdaad ik kwam niet met lege handen naar huis. Ik was verrast naar hun ruime assortiment en hoe de prijzen meevielen. Als student zijnde is dit niet onbelangrijk toch? Zo verkoopt Flying Tiger o.a. eten, school/kantoor spulletjes, decoraties, knutselspulletjes (wol!) en make-up spulletjes!

Laten we kijken wat ik allemaal gekocht heb:



 I am really happy with my 7 bucks real leather gloves! I keep losing my gloves you see, every.single.yearrrr.

A bag of chips ‘salt’
A pair of leather gloves

China Balm a.k.a tiger balm which ease your sour muscles and joints c: I've bought these training chopsticks (you really did not think it was for myself right?!) for a friend who has given up on trying to eat with real chopsticks...

  1. Ohhh Ik houuuu van Flying Tiger!! Er is er ook een hier in Leiden en ik moet gewoon naar binnen elke keer als ik er langs kom! Dit is gelukkig voor mijn portemonnee niet heel vaak ;) Ik was verbaasd dat ze er ook wol hadden, en het is zelfs geen acrylwol! Ik heb de sokkenbreinaaldjes gekocht, die zijn superfijn ;) xx

  4. Flying Tiger is the type of store that will get people broke! I often go there because they have a wide range of assortment for a cheap price. Somehow I (often) always come out of the store with purchases that I don't even need.. T T

  5. We have Tiger stores here too and I looove taking my time looking through the stores. They never seem to have the same stock twice so it's always fun! Everything's quite cheap too, so I always end up coming out with a bag of tat that I mostly bought because "it's so cute"!
