etos

We made multiple trips to drugstore Etos and kept unearthing things we couldn't live without, like anise-flavored toothpaste and ingenious little gadgets that zap the itch out of mosquito bites.

The Nine Streets

This grid of super short streets resembles a tic-tac-toe board, and makes up Amsterdam's most eclectic, boutique-laden shopping district.

2r

There's nothing formulaic about the inside of this über-cool store (picture a slick black-and-white space accented by fluorescent counters), or the clothing (crisp, angular pieces from avant-garde labels including Drykorn and Dice Kayek).

alfons de letter

One of the signatures of Amsterdam is its antique-looking enamel street signs and house numbers; for the past century, this family-owned concern has been custom-making them for both the city and the general public.

dr wonen

Cardboard candelabras, pendant lamps wrapped with images of birch forests, and earthenware cups printed with tongue-in-cheek delft-style windmills are just some of the strikingly unusual-—yet remarkably practical—pieces at this home accessories store.

episode

Well-preserved relics from the '80s dominate at this subterranean branch of Amsterdam-based European vintage chainlet Episode. A good chunk of the stock consists of reworked secondhand pieces, including piped nylon track jackets, paint-splatter-print skirts, and denim vests that have been tailored to suit a modern-day aesthetic.

the frozen fountain

For more than a decade, this gallery/store has been Amsterdam's go-to spot for the latest from emerging product designers. The current vogue for mixing elegant and esoteric is apparent in many offerings here; two standouts are graphic Hella Jongerius earthenware dishes (produced in conjunction with a 400-year-old Dutch ceramics firm), and grandmotherly Job Smeets damask tablecloths subversively festooned with silhouettes of hand grenades and fighter jets.

lady day

Creaky wood floors, a wide-open layout, and clothing racks illuminated by hulking steel lamps give this secondhand store the charming atmosphere of a turn-of-the-century factory. In perfect contrast to the industrial space, the robust, well-organized pickings—silk Empire-waist dresses, popcorn-knit cardigans, slinky lace tunics—have a decidedly ladylike feel.

laura dols

We kept hearing that this was the single best vintage shop in Amsterdam; upon visiting we were pleasantly surprised to learn that there are in fact two Laura Dols outposts across the street from each other. The main store sells '40s, '50s, and '60s dresses; the newer spot has coats, additional clothing, and a not-to-be-missed back section dedicated to (quite reasonably priced) old French floral-print bed linens.
