    I'll have to be in Amsterdam for a few days next week... I'll be working but I'm sure I'll manage some shopping escapade.

    So where should I go to for vintage clothing?

    The one right on canal, corner building?! That store looked like a real deal, too bad we came across it in the late evening - it was closed.

    Gudmun, let me dig around in my Wallpaper magazine stash tonight (if I don't forget), they had a great article on Amsterdam shopping a while back.

    That shop is called
    Van Ravenstein
    Keizersgracht 359

    In that area there are several vintage and new clothingstores, I'll see if I can find a link to a map of that area :flower:

    Gudmun, I finally remembered to look in my stash, but that was an article about interior decorating shopping, not clothes. Sorry!

    I've been wanting to make a more formal trip of Amsterdam rather than just the airport for some time.

    There's one vintage shop,I hear,that's quite popular called: 'Lady Day'. I don't know the street address or anything, but it seems that's where almost all of Am'dam's fashion crowd heads to when on a budget and looking for some 'special' things.

    And Soft and Faust**,how was Van Ravenstein? They recently opened a flagship,or whatever its called,in Berlin. Not just Belgians,they sell,but they manage to squeeze in a couple of their very own.

    I've been curious about that shop since seeing their ads in Purple magazine every issue. Almost every popular Belgian seems to be showcased in some fashion there.

    I know of 'Baby' btw. Never seen it though but from what some friends have said it is indeed quite cool.

    I would love to tell you, but unfortunately it was already closed when we stumbled upon it, and we had to leave early next day. We were leaving for Antwerp, so I did not feel that bad :lol: .

    going there soon and was wondering where the places to shop are.
    will be living there for a while so was wondering if the clothes are on the expensive side or whether i'll just start up a wardrobe over there. i hope...:blush: :p
