Lost and found pop up store from NS

Imagine going on a trip but forgetting your: prosthetic leg, a suitcase full of fake money and the keys to a Porsche! These and other items were all left behind on trains and are available to admire in the exhibition and pop-up store from the NS Lost & Found Project. And you can win a forgotten item! 

About 80.000(!) items a year are left behind in trains and train stations. And not all items are reunited with their owners. 

Designers and stylists had a blast with all these forgotten objects. You can admire and buy the results from 12 till 14 December on platform 2 in Amsterdam Central Station.

Through this project the NS want to show that discarded and left behind items deserve a second life. Think of a bag made out of old train furniture, a bookshelf made out of a forgotten skateboard or a beautiful –forgotten- hat. 

The profits from the pop-up-store will go to the Natuur & Milieu Foundation: an organisation striving for a green and healthy planet, just like the NS is committed to doing.

Ok. So, what do you have to do to win? Here you go: The NS tries to get as many of the forgotten items back to their original owners. But what is their success rate like? Send us your guess of the percentage of their successful returns - mail your answer to hello[AT]strawberryearth.com

Opening times and location:

- Amsterdam Central Station – Platform 2 

- Thursday 12 until Saturday 14 December from 11.00 – 19.00
