Waterlooplein is the perfect place for shopping!
You can find clothes, books, gas masks from 2ndWW, boots, T-shirts and loads of other stuff there and it's all very cheap! Saying that I am a student so you know it's like really cheap.
I bought a great vintage lamp for only 5euros, a big painting for 3euros, T-shirts, albums made of homemade paper and leaves, hat...
Waterlooplein is one of the best things A'dam has to offer, we had such fun there.
What to buy: clogs, funky souvenirs, cheese, pipes...
What to pay: It's really cheap plus you can bargain!
