As mentioned in a previous blog post, Paagman has officially opened on Lange Poten. Lange Poten 41 was previously a film house, a store called Liefhertje, and a Mercendes Benz store.
There are two levels. Like the previous Paagman, the secondhand books are on the upper floor.
The roof is rather stunning – so let’s show another picture.
And below is a view from the second floor, overlooking the entrance.
Of course, if you’re visiting this bookstore, don’t forget to stop in at the American Book Center a few shops down!
Here are more photos of the new bookstore (article in Dutch).
Tonight I visited Paagman’s (a bookstore) on Spuistraat. Before 2014, there was a different bookstore at this location — read my post about what happened to Selexyz. Before that, it was De Slegte, yet another bookstore. Marco tells me that De Slegte was there for ages…
So imagine my surprise when I walk in and see that Paagman’s didn’t last long either!
They are moving as well. Not that Lange Poten is that far away; it’s only a few streets from Spuistraat. But we are beginning to think that this particular location might be cursed.
The sign reads: “Paagman’s is opening a new store on Lange Poten 41. We are also bringing the second hand books with! 700 square meters reading, listening and discovering. Books, music, film and coffee.”
