Toon Thijs ceramics studio - the artist's workshop and small exhibition gallery of his own work and that of other artists.
What to buy: We bought four of these 'canopic jars' with birds' heads. The artist explained to us that he combines almost mathematical shapes - perfectly round dishes and vases etc. - with organic forms such as these birds' heads. The vases of glazed earthenware (faience) reminded us of the actual canopic jars we'd seen at the Luxor Museum during our visit to Egypt in 2000.
What to pay: These vases come in various prices, starting with some 30 or 40 euros for the small ones.

As far as I am concerned Nijmegen is the best shopping city of the Netherlands. It has so many different shops, everyone can find what he or she likes. You will find lots of clothing shops, shoestores, antique shops, candy shops even tattoo shops can be found here. There is not one shoppingstreet, no there are lots. Also there sometimes is a market right in the heart of the city. So even extra shopping is possible haha!
What to buy: - candy gifts
- antiques for your house
- lovely prom dresses
What to pay: prom dresses are rather cheap here, antiques and other are about average.
What to buy: This page is dedicated to my friend JanPeter74... A visit to my favourite neighbouring country would be incomplete without buying a new supply of hagelslag. For perfect breakfasts at home. I always go for the good ones, from De Ruijter, coz no-name brands are really not that good. I can really recommend the newest flavour: Witte Vlokken!
The gevulde koeken (cakes with almond fulling) are one typical speciality of the Netherlands and since I bought it for the first time in Nijmegen and in Amsterdam, I can't go there without eating at least one or bringing some to my friends in Brussels (especially Bridget) who are fond of it!!!!
You can find them everywhere, in the supermarket, in the bakery... but there, they are really excellent! You can find also all kinds of sweets :-)
What to pay: 50 eurocents each
This chain shop is to be found in almost every town in the Netherlands and it is my favourite because it offers very often original, trendy but also elegant clothes...It is the place where I bought my favourite orange trousers with big flowers :-)
If you like excentric clothes, you will certainly love this shop! it is mostly visited by young people but is worth visiting even if you don't like the style!
What to buy: From the large fluorescent orange trousers to the gothic dresses, you will find all you want to be noticed!!!! There are also some accessories like spike necklaces and high pink and green socks :-)))
A street with two levels!!!! Quite original isn't?
It is an example of the modern architecture that is quite common in Nederland.
