This shop is like no other vintage shop I been to! They have everything you could possibly want if you're a vintage lover from a massive variety of vintage to beautiful vintage inspired clothing. It has a very fresh and modern feel yet still has the cosy atmosphere of a vintage loving boutique. Interestingly they have what they call a 'click and brick' system where you can search their website on screens in their store and have them brought to you straight after. When I went, a photos hoot was taking place in the back of the store which they use as an open work space. The staff were really friendly too. Really don't miss this when in Amsterdam!
What to buy: Beautiful one off vintage items, they have an amazing selection of bags and shoes. There is also a collection called New Inspired Vintage with beautiful clothing inspired from 20's-50's decades. I was amazed also by the quality of this, it's really is a step up from any other vintage inspired clothing I've seen.
What to pay: Because there was so much on offer, prices range for dress from €20 - €180

Very stylish but cool and hip as well, Odd Molly looks a little hippyish to me, and I like it---
Clothing store near the 9 Streets shopping district
Also Met Jeans.....
Vintage clothes for the whole family---a really cool space with lots of stuff I did not even look at, but went back to the back for the vintage T's---my friend Tony in Negril Jamaica wanted a Tshirt from Amsterdam, so I figured a vintage one would be even cooler than the regular tourist T's.....found a great one, really soft with a cool looking alien on a tie die background for 8 euros....they also had this really cool selection of tiles near the front, which I also collect, and some with dutch sayings with very strange figures--one of them had someone who looked like they were choking! Also a Vilery and Boch tile of the Rhine river that I think is worth more than the 2 euros I paid--- If in the neighborhood, I definitely recommend this shop---friendly staff as well....open 7 days
What to buy: vintage tees
What to pay: 8 euros

Lovely little shop where you can browse second-hand clothing to your heart's content. 'Neef en nicht' means 'Nephew and Niece'. Good brands, even some French and Italian couture.
What to buy: I bought a suit (jacket, skirt, trousers) of a good brand for 50 euro. And shiny, slick black tight trousers with a mighty split up one leg for only 20 euro :-)
What to pay: See above
A. Boeken is an orginal fournituren (Haberdashery) shop. Three shops are filled from floor to ceiling, with rolls and bales of fabric. Amongst these are an assortment of cupboards and shelves filled with buttons, lace, zips, tape, ruffs, cord and feathers. The collection of artificial leather and latex is probably the most extensive in Europe and in any case the most colourful.
The architecture of the shop is still very original and worth a visit.
Cool Cat/WonderWoman is a fantastic clothing store with trendy and stylish clothes! It's not H&M prices in this store, it's a bit more expensive (but not too expensive). Although it depends from person to person, and how much money you want to spend on clothes.
They mainly attract people up to 24 years old and they are retail market for teenagers, kids and young adults.
It is actually Albert's Flea Market which is located near the Heiniken Brewery. You can find any and everything at this Market. It is located in one of the trendy parts of Amsterdam. Being from New York City, I would equate it to the Lower East Side.
There is also a lot of good Vintage Shopping in Amsterdam too...One store that I would highly recommend is "Lady Day", which is located in Hartenstraat 9. I copped a Burberry Blazer for 45 Euro, so that gives you an idea the kind of goodies you will find..:-)
What to buy: Vintage, Vintage, Vintage
What to pay: You could spend about 100 euro and find a lot of nice pieces.
Harley World is the Harley Davidson dealer in Amsterdam. I've always got a couple friends asking for HD dealer tshirts whenever I travel. It's not always easy to find one, but I located the Amsterdam shop and had the time to make the trip via Metro and walking.
What to buy: Well you could always buy a Harley while in town, but I suspect you're just looking for a tshirt or two. They have a large selection to choose from, and not all of them are in basic black (although it's still the most popular color).
What to pay: The Harley will cost you at least 10,000 Euro's (and this for a Sportster 883).
The T-shirts, 30 Euro's - still outlandishly expensive. go ahead and bite the bullet, you're friend deserves it.
