shopping in amsterdam | telegraph trips
The shopping therapies in the Netherlands' capitol are a curious and worthwhile event, from concealed bookstores and trendy designer stores from the eighteenth centuries, which present the best of Netherlands fashions, to dairy stores and toys and sweetshops. Big cheesewheels are stacked on the ceilings, chocks line the racks, and a lactic flavour filled the aisles.
Once you have once sold the gummy Holland cheeses to a supermarket, you will get a completely different feeling. Sample the Trüffelkäse (which is the best for me), or the nagelkaas (with cloves) and komijnekaas (flavoured with caraway). The wizards cut the ribbons so that you can season them, and they heat the cheeses into foil, which you can take home with you.
Well, the store also has an interesting side business. This is a workshop gallery piled from bottom to top with Delftware - both ancient and recent from the oven. It is my favorite place to go to in the city with such a pleasant mixture. Fragrances and body care items from select manufacturers are on the shelf, many of which are available in only a few stores around the world.
Haarlemmerbuurt is the place I recall that the Negen Straatjes (the lanes that cross the canals) were built about a century ago, before they were announced and rent rose. Much of the flowerbulbs available on the shelves are packed with a view to the tourism industry. Anneke Schat is also one of the leading jewelry designer in the Netherlands (her guests are members of the Netherlands King's Family).
Locals love their bags not only for their style, but also for their size, their powerful craftmanship and their handy designs. It'?s such an elegant storefront, you might be trying to miss it. Find out who the next hottest Netherlands couturier might be and get yourself an inexpensive garment for your home.
It is the flag ship shop of the Amsterdam designer Droog. It is not only equipped with its own fashionable household goods, but also with clothes and cosmetics departments. The X Bank acts as a shop window and platform for all kinds of art isans and designer, so there is often something going on: a show, exhibition, show, performance or conversation.
De Pijp's bustling general store has a length of over a kilometer. Groceries, handicrafts, handcrafted delicacies, cosmetic items from sustainably produced resources, a solar-powered roundabout - everything can be found in Pure Markt. This is the right place: a huge, wonderfully landscaped parc on the south side of the city, with a small pond in the center.
Situated next to the seventeenth centruy Noorderkerk, the small plaza is the setting for a bustling Saturday farmers' fair (freshly hulled mussels, farmer's cheese and the like) and a Monday morning garage sale, which stretches along Westerstraat as a Lapjesmarkt. There is a lot to be broken or knocked over, and the store can be overcrowded.
The Old Dutch Tuck Store isn't just for the children. In the Netherlands, people enjoy their drops (liquorice), and the store sells around 60 different varieties, from wild berries or honeys to three different starches of "salty" - the favourite taste for grown-ups.
