Following EU regulations, from July 1st 2021 online shops must charge customers the VAT % from their home country.

All prices are shown including 21% (NL VAT rate); if your country’s VAT rate different, the prices will change accordingly during checkout.

EXAMPLE
Postalco One Year Wall Calendar €20
- will be €19,67 for a customer from Germany, as the German VAT rate is 19%
- will be €20,67 for a customer from Denmark, as the Danish VAT rate is 25%

Prices are shown including 21% VAT. If you are shopping from outside the EU, VAT will automatically be deducted during checkout based on your shipping address.

PLEASE NOTE
- This only happens after your shipping address has been filled out.
Do not use any of the Express Checkout buttons in the cart (Paypal, Apple Pay, Google Pay or Shop Pay): this skips the checkout process & therefor the VAT cannot be deducted by the system.
- Import fees are the sole responsibility of the buyer.

The Tempo Drop is a borosil glass device in which camphor and ethanol are sealed. The locked-in chrystals react to the subtle changes of weather, before we can experience the weather change ourselves and can therefore be used as a weather predicting device. Clear liquid indicates that bright and clear weather is on its way. Small dots in the liquid indicate foggy weather, and small stars on a bright winter day are announcing snow.


Tempo Drop is a modern interpretation of a storm glass. Stormglasses, which work like barometers, were used by navigators in the 19th century as weather forecasting devices. Legend has it that such devices were used on historical voyages as the HMS Beagle.


The liquid inside the Tempo Drop responds to the changes of the weather, and the extent of crystallization refers to a type of weather on its way. The change of the chrystals is enchanting and ever-changing and we can see ourselves enjoy noticing the subtle changes in the liquid from clear to cloudy skies. A beautiful object for any desk or shelf in the office, and a perfect gift for those who appreciate the visualization of something so ordinary as the change of weather.
At Misc-store, we are simply mesmerized by the clear liquid and chrystals in it.


The Tempo Drop comes in a white box with a excerpt of Jules Verne 's novel "20,000 Miles on the Sea", in which the storm glass is featured. Within the box, a styrofoam mold keeps the device in place. Included is a leaflet with more back-ground information about Storm Glasses and its historical use.


Please note:


The fluid in the Tempo Drop needs to adapt to its new environment. Please allow 1-2 weeks for this process to settle.


This product is also available at Misc-Store in a larger size: Tempo Drop Mini.

About Perrocaliente

Perrocaliente at Misc-store Amsterdam

"Perrocaliente" is a hot dog in Spanish.
"Perro" means "dog.” And "caliente" means "warm."
In a word, "hot dog" in English has been translated literally into Spanish.
The brand name was chosen by the charm sound and the comfortably loose etymology.

When reading the explanation above, and then looking at their designs, Perrocaliente proves well designed objects and products don't have to act serious, in order to be taken serious.

Make no mistake; the hot dog crew's designs are on point and we’re delighted to carry Perrocaliente and present it to our customers in the Netherlands and internationally via our shop online. To see Perrocaliente in person, please visit our store in Amsterdam.


Nice to see you here,
but we'd love to meet
in person too

Misc Store supports
climate change solutions &
plants a tree for every order

Importing from countries as far as Japan & shipping worldwide has more of an impact than we would like. That is why we plant a tree for every order + we plant an additional 2 trees each day.

Furthermore, we offset the individual carbon footprint of our staff, including travel per individual under 8,000 km by car or 2 short-haul return flights annually, by funding climate change solutions through Ecologi.
A selection of these climate projects are shown here.
