In the middle of beautiful Leiden is MEI: the concept store of pup Elton and Mandy: a free spirit who suffers from extreme wanderlust and has a great love for late breakfast, animals and vintage treasure hunting. In MEI, this combines in a cozy mix of vintage or fairtrade jewelry & home decor from exotic travels and flea markets.
At MEI, we have an eye for pretty items you don't ever want to let go. We're on a never-ending quest for the coolest vintage treasures, buy from small fairtrade suppliers that have working conditions as a top priority and travel the world to find craftsmen- and women that make extraordinary items by hand with pleasure and love. From the coolest midcentury brass reptiles and handpicked vintage crystals to 'Power of Love' necklaces from Indonesia, golden bags from Marrakech, organic skin care from California and art from young female Dutch designers to top it all off.
Only what we really love ánd what causes no harm to anything or anyone, makes it into the store. That way, old things get a brand new home, we support people in countries that can really use our help ánd we collect items that make you smile so much you want to use them forever. Everybody wins.
Don't worry if you don't live closeby, you can also SHOP ONLINE. We ship worldwide.
