April 30th is Queen’s Day in the Netherlands, the Dutch national holiday. Besides music, parades and general partying, a unique part of the day is that the streets of every city and town turn into a huge rummage sale. It is a great day to score all kinds of stuff. At the end of the day, stuff is left around and you can pick up free things until they start cleaning it up around 6 p.m. It’s more fun than Christmas! Here are some funny pictures from this year’s edition. I usually go for records and this year I scored the original sountrack of the James Bond film Thunderball for one euro (US$ 1,26).
