LOVE the dam.. great vintage and love the bookstores!
I spent loads of time at Nine Streets.. its not that big and nice to walk around.. lots of little cafes - great for coffee breaks from all the walking and shopping.
I esp. loved zipper (there are two)... and there was a wonderful vintage shoe/bag/accessories store that was more central.. but i cant remember the name..

good info about whats on in amsterdam
Going to Amsterdam tommoroww!!
I'm defiently checking out the Nine Streets! Also, the noordermarkt and waterlooplein! I'm hoping to find some nice cheap vintage things! I'm also planned to walk through the Jordaan for a moment! I will see!
Haha yes I knoww! I went there in august for the first time without my mom, and not to just go to the Kalverstraat, but really to go vintage shopping. And I did bring a map, and I marked al the places were I should go! But I couldn't find a thing! In the end is was funny, but at that moment it sucked!:P
I bought a great pair of leather boots at Zipper for only 45€ (+10€ for the shoemaker who made them look almost new ), Episode has a lot of boots for 65€, I even found a pair by Bally.
Aww, I just love Amsterdam
will be traveling to amsterdam next month. looking for places that will have vintage designer clothing (cdg, miyake, yamamoto, mugler, montana, gaultier, etc.). also looking for places with antique/vintage silver jewelry.
I have a terrible confession to make. I've lived in the Netherlands for my entire life but I have never, not even once, been there to shop! The Nine Streets website is great, I think I'll be going to Amsterdam a lot from now on
