Oldest shop in the Netherlands

Oldest shop in the Netherlands
This shop was established in 1769. The first owner changed his trade from making wigs to selling coffee and tea. It still sells coffee and tea. The shop is called "Het Klaverblad" which means The Shamrock. It also carries the sign of the Dutch East India Company VOC, because the coffee and tea came from that compagny originally.

I always buy my tea here (Lapsang Souchong, English Breakfast and another one, usually an Indian tea)

Luckily they didn't put "Ye Olde Shoppe" on the building.
