Today was a super cold but fun day! It was high time for a shopping spree with my mom. We wanted to explore a different shopping area here in Amsterdam, the Haarlemmerstraat and Haarlemmerdijk. Well, not JUST that area. Of course we made a little pitstop at the Bijenkorf, our fav warehouse.
Walking through the Haarlemmerstraat is really great. It's not just a journey through history but also a very diverse area for all kinds of shopping. Coffeeshops at every corner but those are easy to ignore. There really is a shop for everyone. Plenty of fashion shops, bakeries, bookshops, supermarkets, tea shops, flower shops etc etc. Really a great place for a day in Amsterdam!
Some of my fav stops are below.
The shop RESTORED, great for handmade design and interior stuff.
Tulips in a bag, how convenient! Love that. And look at what the shop looks like:
Cute warning against theft: "In case of theft we will call your mother"
A VERY good place to refuel is Vinnies Deli. We enjoyed very good cappuccinos with homemade organic Carrot- and cheesecake. YUM! What they serve for lunch is very good as well from what I've heard.
