Buying new stuff can be fun and that feeling when your new couch, gadget, or whatever you ordered on Amazon arrives, is pretty satisfying. But what if you’re on a budget? Or if you have a specific taste? Or if you like old things? Maybe you just like strolling around and be surprised by what you might find. This place has you covered.
I found it by coincidence and I am so happy I did. It is easy to pass by and you might not find the entrance to it. After stepping inside Antiekbeurs 700, I saw so many things. Different things. From barstools to art and from old record players to African chairs, everything very well organized and clean. While I was walking around, I found a book from 1969 with a picture of several Dutch writers. Among them was Harry Mulish. As I really like reading, I bought this book. For one euro.
But then I found something so cool and nostalgic: marbles (knikkers in Dutch). We used to play with these on the playground at school. So I bought lots of them to bring back home for Christmas so my friends and I could relive that time.
The guy who runs the place is really friendly and helpful as well and he likes having a chat and talking about Amsterdam. If you want to go local and maybe buy a different kind of souvenir, visit this shop.
