Whether you are a large or small collector, trading
and exchanging cans on the internet or not: there is much to excite your
interest as a member of the Dutch Association of Can Collectors (Blik
op Blik). The association has its own
and at Blik op Blik fairs
you’ll meet like minded collectors with many different interests,
specializations and contacts. There will be the opportunity to exchange
experiences, tips and even make dates to visit each others collections.
The ‘kick’ of can collecting is taking hold of fine cans, studying them and being able to discuss them with other collectors. A Blik op Blik fair is usually attended by dozens of collectors, bringing with them at least 20,000 cans. You’ll never leave a fair without new cans for your collection...
The association Blik op Blik issues a magazine 4x a year called: "Blikvanger".
The magazine has 40 pages with more then 300 pictures of cans!
The magazine is divided in the following sections:
- New Dutch beercans.
