Whenever I’m in Amsterdam I try to squeeze in as much quality shops in the (often) limited time I have. Every time I try to cover one particular area, such as the Pijp or Noord or center. I usually know exactly what stores I want to see and in most cases there even is a time plan involved. You could say I’m a little bit neurotic that way. The funny thing is I usually don’t prepare at all whenever I go and visit a foreign city. Foreign cities and their unknown treasures, the enormous quantity of must-see shops: they have a way of paralyzing me. “There is no way to see everything so I might as well just go and see what pops up.” is usually my city trip or vacation attitude. Since I had plenty of time to get to know Amsterdam (I was born and raised in Amstelveen which is kind of its suburb) I have conquered the paralysis as far as this city is concerned. I know it inside out (like my back pocket as we Dutch folk say). Last Saturday I went to Restored on the Haarlemmerdijk, a shop I wanted to see for ages (I already am a regular visitor of their webshop). Do make sure to visit if you’re in the neighborhood; that’s the good part me already selecting a couple of must-see shops in Amsterdam so you won’t wander aimlessly (as I’m prone to do abroad…). Restored is a beautiful shop selling handmade design, interiorstuff, bags, jewellery, fashion, gifts, ceramics and books. Well, you will just have to buy everything when you go there.
