    Marqt: A foodies place with 'Lekker eten'!

    by Jerelis Written Dec 19, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Great supermarket with health and eco food, and much more! They have a lot of take away goodies! Nice spot! Organic fruits and vegetables, fish caught with fishing lines, meat from free-range cattle and likewise for their poultry selection. They have a great assortment and variety of wines, beers and alcohol free lemonades and soda’s. For 18 hours a day they have fresh bread and pastries, there’s a cheese corner with all the cheeses of Europe. And a fantastic automatic orange press for your day to day vitamin C!

    The dried sausages from Brandt & Levie are a must and go perfectly with a good glass of freshly poured lager beer. And one of my all time favorites are the chunks of chocolate with hazelnuts, peanuts, raisins or flakes, when I visit the shop I have to have these! The “Overtoom”, the name of the street, is becoming more attractive. It used to be a traffic – jammed road. Now you can go there for fun, food and shopping.

    Hartman Cigars & More: My Favourite Shop In Amsterdam!

    by johngayton Updated Sep 22, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ever since the French government decided to up the tax on tobacco products I have given up on going to Calais for my, roughly quarterly, visits to pick up my tobacco, opting instead for Amsterdam - well that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!!

    If I'm only there for a 24 hour trip then I usually have to scour several shops to pick up my 3 Kg (ish) quota but Hartman's usually manages to provide the bulk, keeping a reasonable stock of most common tobaccos ( and some less common ones ).

    This little dark wood-panelled haven is everything that a tobacconist should be, the aroma of the cigars and loose tobacco permeating its very fabric. The glass-fronted shelves and wooden drawers contain everything possible us nicotine addicts could ever desire, add to this a cheerful guy serving it's always a pleasure to part with my couple of hundred Euros in the 2 minutes it takes the transaction, smiles all round!

    What to buy: Gauloises Tabac a Rouler

    What to pay: At 5 Euros for 50g - do I care about the French economy?

    DVD, CD & Record shops: Shop with a rock bent....

    by djski Written Feb 16, 2013

    Wooden floors, records in cardboard boxes on said floors, more records stacked on the said cardboard boxes. That's just the lower layers, there are more layers of record to head height on the tables. Best thing to do is ask 'where do I find x' and the shop keep will direct you.

    Last visted Jan 2013

    What to pay: The full price for each, no discount for multiple purchases, Bah!

    Raw Materials: The nicest recycled, industrial & old furniture

    by elena230 Updated Jul 2, 2012

    The shop is in the center of Amsterdam, on the Rozengracht. Close to the Anne Frank House and the canals. The shop is special because all the furniture and accessories are old, re-used or made from recycled materials like wood or iron. It's edgy, industrial, ethnic and raw, just like the name. They change their interior every week and the styling is amazing! You should go see if you're a fan of interior decorating and really nice and special stuff, no one else has.

    What to buy: Special interior products from different countries all over the world

    What to pay: Medium prizes, not very low, not very high, but worth it because it's all authentic!

    Planes@Plaza: Look for the jet engine

    by steedappeal Written Feb 9, 2012

    This replaces an earlier store that featured lots of airplane models. There is a partial fuselage that can be visited and is fun for children. Not as much KLM merchandise as I had hoped for. Found a repro camera bag in old KLM livery that made me happy, however.

    What to buy: Plane-related books, gifts, models and accessories.

    What to pay: 10 Euros +

    Can't remember the name: Wooden tulips to carry home!

    by Arfah Written Dec 25, 2011

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What to buy: Wooden tulips are one of the things I've bought during my trip to Amsterdam. The wooden tulips were available in many colours. I found a shop along Damrak, it's on the left side if you're walking towards the Central Station. This shop sold wooden tulips for a quite a reasonable price...1.50 euro per piece and 12.50 euro for 10 pieces. They look gorgeous arranged naturally in a white plain vase.

    Other souvenir shops sell wooden tulips too. Prices are almost the same. However, avoid buying them at the airport...it's expensive.

    Department stores: Shopping heaven

    by Igraine Updated Jul 26, 2011

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I love coming here browsing the racks, book department, cd´s, interior things etc.
    I know someone who starts to moan when I mention that I have been here again! "Oh no not more handbags!". He is right tho, I always looks at the handbags but they are so expensive!!
    It also houses several bars and a restaurant. The pastries to go with the coffee are delicious!! You can buy them too at the bakery at the groundfloor.

    Last year major rebuilding and decoration has taken place in this shop. I have yet to get used to it but i am sure i will.

    The 5th floor is rebuilt again. The self catering restaurant is located here now. They have coffee and stuff, sushi bar, hotmeals and sandwiches.

    From the 5th floor you can catch a glimpse of the roof from the Beurs van Berlage and see the Central station.

    What to buy: Buy whatever you like.

    What to pay: Its not a discount store! During sales they can have good bargains.
