Beurstraverse: Buy everything
Beurstraverse is not Oxford Street of London but nevertheless, it is shopper’s paradise. It has variety of shops available and most of the time it is crowded with locals and tourists. It is believed to be the hub of all shopping.
Scrap!: Waste Products
This shop has kilometers of wire, silver foil, cardboard and plastic, all at give-away prices. And they have bins of clothes and rags, metal grids, plastic caps, limbs of tailor's dummies, old books, pieces of perspex, broken mirrors, blocks of triplex and strips of foam rubber, and so much more stuff which are (particularly industrial) waste products.
The name SCRAP stands for Stichting Creatief heRgebruik van Afval Producten (Foundation for creative recycling of waste products.) The majority of the visitors are artists and hobbyists. But it also a great place for anyone who wants to help evironment by recycling, and if you go, I recommend going on a Wednesday or Saturday afternoon, thats when all the kids are off school, and they might just be having their birthdayparty here (it is possible for 6euro per kid)!
DesignDock: Design Furniture Old and New
This Design furniture shop is not just any other shop, it has many shops in one. It is a new shop, but in an historical building. This building used to be a meat factory and was built in 1900.
It has aprox. 2500 M2 of old and new design furniture as well as assesories. It is a great place to stroll around if you like design stuff. There is also an art-gallery attached to this store.
Wednesday - Friday 11am - 6pm
Saturday and every first Sunday of the month 11am -5pm
What to buy: Just looking around is already fun, but hey, you might see something you've been searching for. And then, if you don't find anything you can always have a cappuchino in the cafe.
What to pay: Since they have also second hand furniture you might be able to find a good deal.Related to:
Lijnbaan: The largest shopping street of the Netherlands
Rotterdam boasts the largest continuous collection of shops in Europe. Most shops are located at the Lijnbaan. The Lijnbaan is the first pedestrian-only shopping area in Europe. This is typically a 60’s street. Plans are being made to renovate the Lijnbaan. On Sundays it is amazingly crowded here with people shopping. The benches in the middle are a nice place to sit and watch people.

Zuidplein: All shops under one roof
Zuidplein is a big, entirely covered, shopping center. Not very touristical but if you like to shop, this is definitely a good place to go.
Didn't notice: Can you guess what this sells
I was intrigued by this shopfront, I think it was a hairdressers. Next time I visit the city I will have to go past and see if Barbie is doing anything more bizarre.
