This supersize boutique sells vintage Scandinavian furniture, endless pendant lamps, and one of the most inspired selections of clothing in Amsterdam—all in a raw, sky lit space that has the look of a decommissioned airplane hangar. Color is not part of the equation here: Nearly everything in the store comes in black, white, or gray, from the Escape chiffon tops to the mid-century hanging lamps and modular leather couches.
Kick off your tour with a stop at Sissy-Boy Homeland, one of the largest branches of the popular Dutch Sissy-Boy clothing chain, which is beloved for its broken-in cargos, earthy leather sandals, and printed gauze tunics.
Next, visit neighbor Keet in huis for loads of kid-themed trinkets that appeal equally to adults
Nearby, 90 Square Meters devotes its cube-ish space to graffiti murals and his-and-hers urban-style clothing, most of which dangles from suspended steel chains.
Wind up at the appropriately named Extra Small, a pod like retailer that stocks the most popular picks from lines like Paul Smith Women and D&G—exclusively in petite sizes.
Het Grote Avontuur is a bilevel spot loaded with amusing trinkets from all over the world, including Russian nesting dolls and tasseled chiffon Chinese lanterns.
Design shop & K Centraal, a year-old offshoot of & Klevering Zuid, has a more expansive collection of creative odds and ends than its sister shop (our picks: ceramic chicken eggcups and appliquéd patchwork hangers).
Organic-cotton tees, jeans, and numerous takes on the hoodie provide enough incentive to visit Nukuhiva, but perhaps most inspiring is that much of the proceeds from the sales of said items go to charity.
And thrifty vintage fans should swing through Wini (Haarlemmerstraat 29, 31-20-421-93-93) for bags, shoes, and sweaters largely priced under $50.
Sisters Marisa and Mariëlla Angel opened this pair of shops because they wanted to offer the area's many artists and creative types access to anything-but-run-of-the-mill clothing. Angel Basics, the original store, is largely stocked with pieces priced south of 100 euros, while Too is home to splurgier familiar-label items, like Antik Batik tunics and Anonymous camisoles.
