Such is the popularity of our little tartan-clad nation that if you were to open a stylish, celtic boutique in a small Dutch city you'd do a roaring trade! That's exactly what the wonderful Esther at Sjeintje Boterkoek has done and our cards, prints & mugs sit very comfortably in this little Scottish outpost. OK, she also stocks British and Irish products but we all know a good highland cow picture can attract euros from a wallet faster than you can say Sjeintje Boterkoek! We dropped in to say hello earlier this month and at the same time got a lesson in how to talk your way out of a parking ticket in the Netherlands.

Traffic Warden: "ah ok, no stress..." Smiled and wandered off....
