    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.

    This is not a "regular" shopping but one the main attractions in Amsterdam is the coffee shops.

    Again - i Don't know the difference because i don't smoke.

    FLOWER SHOPS IN SCHIPHOL AIRPORT: LAST CHANCE TO GET A GIFT FOR WOMEN

    by DAO Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What to buy: Schiphol Airport has 2 great flower shops in the Departure/Transit area. It is not too late! You can get some seriously great flowers (add water) for loved ones back home. Unlike cut flowers, they will not die and put you back in the dog house after 3 days. You can even get Tulips in bowls that you can grow in your house. Fantastic! Well priced and easy to transport. The bowls are ceramic with Dutch artwork and scenes. An excellent gift.

    Don’t forget!

    …And you can reserve Duty Free goods on-line before you arrive! Check out the website below!

    Haarlemmerstraat: Head West

    by pieter_jan_v Updated Mar 14, 2010

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Haarlemmerstraat is a great shopping street stretching to the West (towards the city of Haarlem) from the Central Station area.

    Original is was constructed as a dike and many of the side streets to the South still are great lookoffs.

    There are numerous smaller shops and some small hotels/hostels here.

    Also you will find your local Supermarket (AH) and a small post office.

    You end up at the Haarlemmerpoort, an impressive gate towards Haarlem.

    What to buy: There are a lot of nice-to-have oriental stuff shops, but also some very old local Dutch brick-a-brack style shops and reform shops.

    John N. Andringa: My 2nd Favourite Shop in Amsterdam!

    by johngayton Updated May 18, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Having visited Hartman's and bought out their stock of Gauloises I then hang a left and head for here. This is another little gem of a shop and having been a tobacconists for over 100 years (founded 1902) the aromatics are ingrained into its very fabric. Service is always cheery and welcoming and more often than not I get a freebie lighter or two.

    What to buy: Gauloises Tabac a Rouler

    What to pay: Now 5.50 Euros for 48.5g - going up in price!

    A great little gothic, club-wear, and fetish clothing shop with wonderful designs and gear available. Bringing great fashion to Amsterdam since 1988, one of the best shops of this type in the city. They also offer custom made clothing. Excellent shop. Rating: 5 stars out of 5.

    J G Beune: Pastries and Cakes - oh my!

    by yooperprof Updated Aug 28, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I take no responsibility for what might happen to your waistline or your diet if you come to this wonderful bakery. It's located on an eclectic stretch of Haarlemmerdijk on the northern edge of the Jordaan neighborhood. I can say this: one look in the window and I was lost!

    On the other hand, maybe you will walk so much while in Amsterdam that an extra 800 calories here or there won't really matter!

    It's probably a good thing that there's no bakery like this in my home town.

    resistance is futile abandon all diets, ye who enter here

    All across Amsterdam: Dolls

    by Rupanworld Written Feb 2, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    All across Amsterdam

    What to buy: Well from my childhood I have always been very fond of dolls, soft toys etc. And now that I have a daughter, I have more excuses to buy them, even though she does not much like playing with them, and I end up being their proud possessor. So all across Amsterdam, I was always looking at the unique dolls and toys from the window glasses. they were very different and worth buying. Here are some photos.

    What to pay: No idea. I didn't buy. Shops were closed
