3) Store without a home

This started out in 2010 as a pop-up store, subsequently drifted around the city, but ultimately found a permanent home in Haarlemmerdijk. They sell affordable and quirky design items, like paper mounted animal heads, or crumpled ceramics, by – mostly unknown – Dutch and international brands, independent labels and talented designers.

4) The Maker Store

Ninety different local designers and makers sell their highly original objects here; think cutting boards made from local trees, Amsterdam board games, or necklaces shaped like Amsterdam’s street pattern. You might spot one of the designers at work in ‘the Maker Space’. Once a month there’s a big indoor market where you can meet even more makers.
