Uncovering the treasures of a Dutch auction site


Julien Rademaker scours the largest online marketplace of the Netherlands, marktplaats.nl, for the rare and the well designed so that you don’t have to.

He puts his finds, dozens per day, up at gevondenopmarktplaats.nl for everyone to see. In an interview with Bright he says he does this because “I want to show people that there is a world beyond Ikea or Leen Bakker. Perhaps people are afraid they’ll buy the wrong thing, or they don’t know where to look. I try to help those people.”
