    Bad Grrrrrrrls Who "Window Shop!"

    by Geisha_Girl Written Feb 27, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Still headed towards the Van Gogh museum, we came across this interesting "window display" as we DETOURED through the Red Light District.

    We were on the lookout for a *Midget Pole Dancer* for our pal, Yubert........but came across THIS!

    Ooooh! We LOVE Champagne!

    ikea: up there on my agenda...

    by husain Updated Nov 21, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Walked many miles, asking for directions... Finally i see a familiar blue and yellow pattern!

    Its been a favourite with me for a while now- ikea. For its design, and the value for money. Functional and sleek, its exactly what i`m always on the look out for...

    What to buy: My favourite sections are always the lamps, clocks etc. Also these are usually things i can carry all the way home!
    Also, remember to pick up the latest ikea catalogue! (Was in dutch here, but who cares!:P)

    What to pay: Its always great value for money... It dosent costs me more than what i`d pay in Delhi for something somewhat similar.

    Behind the ROYAL PALACE on the Dam is MAGNA PLAZA , one of the most beautiful buildings in Amsterdam.
    Until some years ago this magnificent building housed the MAIN POST OFFICE , but today it is the home of trendy clothing stores an unusual gift and gadget shops.

    At the end of the KALVERSTRAAT, near the Munttoren, is the KALVERTOREN %c&%s& - an absolute shoppers' paradise.
    The most striking feature of this building is the 100-foot-tall glass tower which provides an extraordinary view of the city center.

    Head then to the BIJENKORF (THE BEEHIVE) on the DAM, where shoppers will be delighted to find an extensive range of cosmetics, clothing, shoes, accessories, music, books, toys, furniture, homewares and much, much more....all in one elegant famous store where lots of Dutch people from all over the country love to come for a day......

    Coffeeshop: Coffeeshop

    by ATLC Written Feb 23, 2003

    A different kind of smoking altogether. Amsterdam is a favourite destination for the tourists that come here to smoke grass.
    Personally I get really tired of people asking only after two things in Amsterdam: the red light districht and coffeeshops. As if there isn't much more to Amsterdam than that.
    Nor is it a symbol of what some see as a degenerate society. Just a fact of life, which exists in all countries in more or less public or hidden ways.

    What to buy: Don't know. There are numerous Amsterdam guides that concentrate on coffeeshops.

    Staalplaat: Great Experimental Music Shop

    by cwest03 Written Sep 1, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Having very eclectic taste in music and Staaalplaat catering to that type of taste, it was always my dream to go to the shop in Amsterdam and browse around for an hour or so (I could probably spend more than that in there). I had been familiar with their site on the web as well as their label so I was pretty excited to see what they had in stock. I was amazed by the amount and variety of hard to find CDs and LPs that they had. This little shop is the place to go with your obscure taste. Like most shops in Europe you're more than welcome to listen to anything before you buy it. It was a bit hard to find but well worth the hunt.

    What to buy: Experimental, electronic, etc, CDs, LPs, Tapes and magazines.

    open Mondays - Fridays from 11.00-18.00 hrs
    Saturdays from 12.00-17.00 hrs

    What to pay: Average prices for CDs and such are to be expected.

    Zenza: Wonderful lamps

    by pieter_jan_v Written Dec 30, 2013

    Zenza is a great shop for home furnishing, like lamps, carpets, textiles, tableware and furniture.
    Most of the merchandise comes from Egypt and has wonderful Oriental looks.

    Etos: Drug store ... not a coffee shop :)

    by ingridf_nl Written Feb 27, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Etos is where you can buy bandaids, shampoo, etc. You can only get your prescriptions fulfilled in some Etos stores, so you may want to look for an Apotheek instead.
