3 Quirky Shops in Amsterdam

If you’ve ever been to Amsterdam, you’ll know that anything goes. After all, the Dutch have a saying, “Doe maar normaal, dan doe je al gek genoeg”, which translates to “Just act normal, as that’s crazy enough.” So, here are some normal (read: slightly weird and quirky) shops in Amsterdam to geek out at on your next trip to the Dutch capital:

Thea’s kooky-quirky button shop has a range spanning plain to patterned, bone to burned wood, everyday plastic to couture-worthy. If you can’t find it here, you don’t want it!

De Posthumuswinkel

Venerable stationer that’s been serving Dutch dignitaries since 1865. Stock up on personalised chops, seals, warrants and rubber stamps, plus cards. I say!

Mod, light-filled cabinet of curiosities stuffed with mounted insects, taxidermy, jewellery and accessories, ceramics, soaps, stationery, yarn and more. Brill!
