    De Markthal: Unique Shopping experience

    by pieter_jan_v Written Oct 31, 2014

    De Markthal is a horseshoe shaped combination of 228 apartments, mall and parking garage with 1200 spaces.
    We visited this eye catching building a week after its opening in october 2014. It was on a exceptional warm Saturday and the place was crowded and hot. It looked like half of Rotterdam's population wanted to have a glimpse of the latest in shopping.

    The interior ceiling is amazing, painted with big flowers.

    In figures: 100 stalls with fresh products, 15 food shops and 8 restaurants.

    Business hours:
    Groundfloor stalls:
    Mo-Th: 10AM - 8PM
    Fr: 10AM - 9PM
    Sa: 10AM - 8PM
    Su: Noon - 6PM

    The basement supermarket and other shops have different hours.

    The lower levels parking is open 24/7.

    PLAATBOEF: 2nd hand vinyl records

    by pieter_jan_v Written Aug 9, 2009

    Plaatboef is a Rotterdam institution for vinyl records. In 1981 the first store opened at the Maretakstraat by Dennis Meijer, and moved to the Nieuwe Binnenweg 179 in 1983. That was the former location of the famous "Bertus" record shop. The ever growing merchandise amount forced a move to the present location at the Nieuwe Binnenweg 81A. But even here 30 square meters floor space were added in 2006.

    As a result the present shop has three floor levels with some tricky step changeovers.

    There's something for everyone. Some cartons are not sorted, so better schedule some searching time when visiting.

    Business hours:
    Mo: Noon - 6PM
    Tu-Th: 10AM - 6PM
    Fr: 10AM - 9PM
    Sa: 10AM - 5PM
    Su: Noon - 5PM

    What to buy: Records!

    What to pay: From Euro 5 for albums.

    The White Teeth Shop offers everything for your teeth. I didn't know there were sooo many more toothpastes than in a regular drugstore!

    What to buy: Tooth powder to whiten your teeth, electric tooth brushes, tongue cleaners, you name it!

    What to pay: Prices differ per product. I spent € 30,90 on 3 pots of tooth powder, a soft tooth brush and 2 brushes for my electric tooth brush.

    R&R Collections: Sarees and Indian clothing

    by ATLC Written Sep 7, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The West-Kruiskade continues onto the 1e Middelandstraat where you will find a number of Indian clothing shops. They are all extremely colourful and glittering with handsewn beads and decoration.

    What to buy: Beautiful colourful sarees, evening gowns, childrens festive clothes, shoes, Indian jewelry, scarfs...

    I bought 2 beautiful fabrics in the end-of-sale. A very large green scarf with lovely dark red knotted fringing, and a beautiful saree purple and green. Both were € 10 a piece. I think I will use the saree as a table cloth, as it is slightly damaged and not really fit to wear it as a saree. But beautiful nonetheless.

    What to pay: A saree or evening dress is from about € 65 to € 250. You can also buy fabric and have it sewn into a ready made saree for € 30 extra.

    Harold's has every artist's dream of wonderous art supplies. Even supplies some artists might not have even known about -myself included- complete with a selection of various paper types as far as the eyes can see, markers in a multitude of colors and thicknesses, paints, brushes, pens, sketchbooks in its various sizes, convenient kits, and even a nice little collection of art books. It's got it all! All, I tell you, ALL!
