    Selection of Dolls
    1 more image

    I had checked prices of souvenirs in Amsterdam, and had decided to leave it until the last day to buy because of the high prices. I looked in the souvenir shops here, and found the prices to be lower. There is a great selection because of so many shops, and I found different to in Amsterdam. I collect Dolls from different countries, and this is where I bought them from. They had a lot to choose from, from different outfits, to different sizes and prices.

    What to buy: Plenty of Dolls to choose from.

    SMOKED EEL

    Smoked eel (gerookte paling) is one of the Dutch main specialities. They are for sale at pretty steep prices. In this shop for 12 euro per 500 gram.
    The probleem with eel is that the young ones (glass eel) are fished too much, which means that it is probable that eel will be extinct in the near future.

    What to pay: In this shop 12 euro for 500 gram (2004).

    The eel shop: The eel shop

    VOLENDAM EEL SHOP

    So we found the dyke along the harbour and drove down a slope to park. Were met by a nice guy who found us a parking spot. Told us we could stay there as long as we wanted and that we could pay what we wanted. I gave him 1 euro 50. Then he directed us to the smoked eel shop, told us to hurry because a bus full of tourists were expected within 15 minutes. Sold us 40 euro worth of fish (worth it!). But his talk was so fast and smooth, we never realised what hit us! Nevertheless, the eel was a good buy (very freshly smoked). So no worries there.

    "Volendam" is not only a place of nostalgia, also a wonderful town for shopping.

    There are supermarkets on town area, but I advise you to check the souvenir shops on the walking arcade, such colorful and so many things to buy to bring back home ....

    As I was there several times of the year as it was summer and also snowy winter, the shops are open all the year around 7 days a week. Just walk the seaside bouleverad and u will se drugstores, shops where u can be taken photos in traditional dresses, bakerys and so on ...

    Beautiful nature and beuatiful place to visit .. :)

    What to buy: Local crafts, all kind of souvenirs ..

    Garden windmills

    by darkjedi Updated Mar 11, 2007

    Near the seafront a few yards away from the museum is a small shop that sells garden windmills. These are packed away in small flatpacks and can be taken home and assembled at your leisure.

    buying them here. I found the prices to be quite reasonable.
