“I was hoping you wouldn’t call back.”

It’s not the kind of things you normally expect your true love to answer the phone with when you return her call that you missed just moments before but that is what I was greeted with when doing so. I guess we had made a good run of it. Two years of marriage is nothing to be sniffed at in this day and age. Luckily she let me know what she was referring to before I had finished mentally dividing our stuff.

“That way I could open the two boxes that just arrive, and say I at least tried to ask if I could first.”

She was of course referring to a very exciting delivery that we had just received, a delivery which I did indeed make her wait to open until I got home from work that evening, a delivery which I am very excited to now share the contents of with you…




Invading Holland T-Shirts!

I am so excited. You might remember that I was messing around with some t-shirt designs a while ago. Well, the response that I got was so great that I decided to get some of them made for real. And now they are for Sale!





Details:
Imagine wearing a “Dutch Circle Party Survivor” t-shirt to an actual Dutch Circle Party, or wearing the “I See Dutch People” t-shirt on Queens Day or any other situation where you are likely to bump into a lot of Dutch people (Any day in Holland).

Both designs have been professionally silk screen painted on Fruit of The Loom T-shirts and are available in Small, Medium, Large, X-Large and XX-Large.

Prices & Discounts:
T-shirts are €19.50 each, €18.50 each when ordering three or more and €17.50 each when ordering five or more. Please note that delivery costs are not included in the price. I can give more accurate details on sending costs via email when I know how many you want and where they are being sent to.

Ordering:
I’m busy working on the official web-shop but it’s not quite ready yet. However, you can already order (and more importantly; receive) your very own Invading Holland T-Shirt by emailing me at:

shop@invadingholland.com

In your email please include information about which t-shirts you would like, how many, in which sizes and which address you would like them sent to. I can then send you an official invoice along with information on how you can pay for your order (by direct bank transfer or PayPal). I can then post off the t-shirts once the order is complete.

For those of you who thinks this sounds too much like the kind of shady deal that you would get offered by some dodgy bloke down the pub, don’t worry! Invading Holland has been registered as an official business and you might find the following information comforting:

    Fantastic! I have an idea for a bday present for an expat friend of mine who loves Dutch circle parties :) Congratulations and good luck!
    PS: how about making a version for girls? :)

  2. Saskia says:

    Agreed! For girls a scoop neck or V neck would be great.

  3. AQK1982 says:

    I second that! Please add a girl-version (also in larger sizes :-))

  4. Invader_Stu says:

    It’s interesting that you all asked that. I wanted to add them but I could only order a certain amount to begin with which unfortunately meant making the call on no girl version in this batch.

    BUT… :)

    If all goes well and the t-shirt prove popular enough I want to add a girl version in the next batch (also in larger sizes :). So if you share the link about the t-shirts with everyone you know you can help make it happen.

    See what I did there :p

  5. Terri says:

    Love the t-shirts!

  6. Likeahike says:

    Love the T-shirts. I am so going to wear the ‘I see Dutch people’ on my Coast to Coast walk next year. ;-)

  7. Invader_Stu says:

    Terri – Thank you very much

    Likeahike – That will be funny because you know where ever you go in the world you will bump into Dutch people. Send me an email if you would already like the t-shirt.

    I want a “I survived being married to Stu” girl tee.

  9. Invader_Stu says:

    Kiki – I think you get a medal for that too :p Technically you are the only one who has survived being married to me (which makes it sound like I’ve been married to lots of girls who didn’t survive but I just mean I’m still married to Simone).

  10. ERMAHGERD THIS IS SO EXCITING!!! :D

  11. Invader_Stu says:

    Barb – I know right :) That’s how I feel too :)

  12. VallyP says:

    I want some!!! I’m coming round before Christmas, see?

  13. Invader_Stu says:

    VallyP – You’re alway welcome :)

  14. MissNeriss says:

    I’m so ordering one of these (are there any left??).

  15. Renee says:

    Awesome! My Dutch husband even understood the circle party one but I had to explain the other one to him…

  16. I’m Dutch (married to an American) and I had to google circle party, how funny is that? Not that I haven’t survived many of them, but I had no idea that’s what they’re called. And just for the record, I survived uncountable numbers of them at my in-laws house in the US — not a bit different than the ones in Holland, except perhaps the goodies served and the language spoken. My misfortune was that I understood every scintillating word. I do get a kick out of your site. It is so much fun (usually) to see your country and culture through the eyes of expats and other foreigners. If you have a sense of humor, that is.

  17. Stephanie says:

    We’re ordering some to give away as prizes over our next few events … these are great! :)

  18. Invader Stu says:

    MissNeriss – There are but you already know that now that you have yours :)

    Renee – That’s funny. Usually it is the other way around and most Dutch people don’t understand why circle parties are so weird.

    Miss Footloose – I’ve been to so many Dutch circle parties that I have lost count. I’ve never been to an American one though.

    Stephanie – Thanks :) Just send me an email and let me know how many you are interested in.

  19. Irene Stewart says:

    Will you send T-Shirts to Canada. I am a first generation Dutch Canadian and I see Dutch People all the time :). We have circle parties Frequently and Speculoos in the cupboard right now!
