We found a few great vintage shops in Amsterdam purely by accident!
I had completely forgotten to look before we had gone away, probably because we had so much planned already.
There are 2 shops in Amsterdam both are big shops full of reworked vintage clothes, lots of skirts made from older pieces (I bought one myself)
Episode offers a huge range for both guys and girls which is a nice change, my boyfriend got a hawaiian shirt.
They also stock a lot of scarves, sports t-shirts and jumpers.
This is what I bought:
I love this skirt its on trend, its comfy and despite the bold pattern it goes with most things!
and I also bought this pretty scarf.
you will find Episode at Waterlooplien and Berenstraat
a look at the website informs me this chain also has a shop in Camden (maybe youve been?)
Laura Dols Vintage:
Mainly for women there is a huge downstairs room full of occaisionwear, lots of taffeta and net!
Also a lot of older vintage clothing and lovely gloves and bags
find it on Wolvenstraat
Very retro, plenty for men and women here, lots of dresses from the 70s good fun!
Niewe Hoog Straat
A busy market by the canal. Expect to find souvenirs, smoking paraphernalia and second hand clothing.
Ben bought a fab levis denim jacket for cheaper than they were in Episode next door.
He was really happy with this because he had his levi jacket stolen from a club back home recently.
The tour guides say its open Monday - Friday 9-5.30pm and Saturday 8.30-5.30pm however we turned up at 11am and found most stalls werent open yet.
The best things about vinatge shopping in Amsterdam - the euro/pound is very similar atm so you know roughly what an item is selling for and you can work out if its worth the price or not, generally I found the vintage shops quite resonable but the more you can get from a market the better :)
