Alexander Bakker

I'm a collector with a wide ranging taste. After enjoying the rugs, some for years, some for months, some for weeks, I sell them on. In daily life I am the owner of an import business, trading in artisanal foods from Japan. This means I will arrange shipping at competitive rates. If you have any questions, please contact me at info@flairforflavor.com.
