It is Monday now: time to come back to the real world!

Johan went to his work this morning at the Haco store, so time for me to choose some pictures out of the 500 I took at the opening last Saturday. And in a later blog post I will show you the great pictures we took at the lovely dinner at Blue Marlin and the “after party” at Pacha.

Last Friday Johan (with some help) cleaned the store. He parked the Haco truck in front of the store. And I bought a bouquet of orange flowers, a present from my father and his wife Agniet.

Saturday morning our friends Dennis, Antoin, Peter and Bert and I went one more time to the Hipodromo in San Jordi, where there is a flea market with a lot of locals.

Flyering at Hipodromo San Jordi

Two gay men Gertjan Holleman and Johan Verveer #pillowtalk move to #Ibiza Spain job search  #opening #party #Haco #meublesTwo weeks ago I already flyered on 350 cars there. And 50 flyers we brought personally to the neighbor stores on Calle D’ Aragon.

“¡Qué buena idea, mucha suerte!” the people at the neighbor stores said.

And some neighbors asked us to put flyers at their cashier desk. Including a nice Spanish girl at an optician store, where I bought Johan his Ray-ban for his birthday.

“I will come and bring a lot of friends who are decorating their houses!” she said. More about her later…

At 2 PM the store was clean, balloons at both entrances and the catering and DJ Cristian Codoy, famous from Cafe del Mar and Ibiza Live Radio, arrived.

“Let the party begin!” Johan said with a little bit nervous voice.

But suddenly two new clients walked in who wanted to buy a couch and a chair. So the first hour Johan missed the party.

New clients so work to do

But finally he could enjoy.

When entering the store each visitor had to write down his/her name and email address and they got a number for the lottery.

At half past three Johan’s boss Erik-Jan Lancee gave a speech in which he glorified Johan with a laugh and … a tear?

Was that a tear after the speech Johan?

And Mark and Erik-Jan himself got an oorkonde from the HACO chairman.

And then it was time for the lottery! See here the funny video of the local Ibiza girl (from the Ray-ban store!!) who wins and starts screaming when she hears that she won the boxspring bed worth 2.000 euros:

The party was until 5 PM and the weather was so beautiful, that we could stand outside. See here some of the 500 pictures I took:

    Haha … Jelle, zat ff aan je te denken! Je bent nog steeds dezelfde (OK bijna) maar gaaf! Had ff met Leo van Hoekzicht over jou, maar vind ‘t fijn om tegen jou te kunnen zeggen dat ik trots ben op jouw TOTAAL eigen gemaakte en gerealiseerde grote, gave dingen die je neergezet hebt uit eigen kracht en idee. Geen gelul, dat weet je van mij, petje af. Hihi … vreemd nu he dat ik zoiets zeg. Maar ‘t is gewoon apart en ook nog wereldwijd! Succes Gr. Ruud
