Seacoastonline.com tells of two part-time Bali residents, Hans and Linda Van Der Does, who run a chain of six Toko Indo stores in New England and Florida selling jewelry and accessories from Bali.

“Toko” means “store” in Indonesian – a name that the Van Der Does have championed for 13 years, starting from their first shop in Provincetown, Massachusetts. Other shops in the U.S.A, are found state of Maine in Portland, Kennebunkport and Ogunquit. They also operate a shop in Key West, Florida and another in Porstmouth, New Hampshire

The shops sell jewelry and accessories personally purchased, designed and manufactured by the husband-wife owners.

Hans and Linda met in Bali where Linda worked as a wholesale buyer and Hans as a shipping and buying agent. Bali remains their home for part of the year when they return to the island to enjoy life on the island and replenish their inventories for the coming year.

Linda explained: "We've been doing this so long that we have a personal relationship with our manufacturers in Bali. It's really like a family. They even have photos of our Son up in the offices."

Toko Indo sells accessories, gifts, Buddhas, hats, bags, socks and costume jewelry.

"I think it really makes a difference that we know everyone we buy from," Linda added.

Some of the proceeds from Toko Indo benefit local communities and charities in Bali.

"Every store has rings that sell for $3, and 100 percent of the proceeds go to the Rotary in Bali," Linda said. "This really helps in Bali. The Rotary does not take a salary and the donations all go to help those in need, especially children with cleft palate." 

Committed to keeping Bali green, the Van Der Does sell Buddha statues made from resin by Balinese craftsmen. "The master carver carves the original Buddha in wood, and casts in resin," said Hans. "We do not want to contribute to the stealing from the local trees. We buy products made with coconut and bamboo woods as these are sustainable."
