    Kruimeltje is a small shop in a characteric Jugendstil building.

    The new owner Margriet Kramer has arranged the merchandise better than the previous one. It's a pity that this shop will close in Summer 2013. It will be taken over by next door's Comicasa Comic Book shop.

    What to buy: I found a old Dutch 45 RPM record never encountered before.

    What to pay: Euro 2 for the record. Albums go up to 12 Euro's.

    CLOSED!: Waaghals: CLOSED: CD's and Records

    by pieter_jan_v Updated Dec 16, 2009
    Former Waaghals

    The Waaghals was becoming a well-known chain of stores with a quality selection of CD's and music, both new and second hand.

    I hope this shop stays, because in last decade 3 other shops took turns; one of them being a second hand records-only shop.

    Unfortunally, the shop stopped its business!

    What to buy: RECORDS!

    What to pay: Average prices, a little at the high side for the imports and rare ones.

No panic, Broekhuis opened a second hand section on its first floor in March 2014 and will serve the old customers.
