Kid's shoes from Meys & Co
May 13, 2010
My kiddie shoe shop of choice here in Amsterdam is Meys & Co. I’m picky with shoes for my children-- they need to be strong, durable, cute (but plain), and slightly old-fashioned. I always find something to my taste at Meys & Co! There's a good selection of classic styles mixed with more fashionable footwear, ...

Shabbies
June 30, 2009
Shabbies were originally designed in the seventies by Dutch shoe designer Fred de la Bretoniere and are the most comfortable, fashionable and beautiful boots I own.

HEMA
January 21, 2009
HEMA is one of those shops (or concepts really), that is almost impossible to describe. If you've ever set foot in a HEMA, you understand. In fact, you get the concept immediately, and you're a fan instantly - no denial possible! And you just understand why we, Dutchmen, are all raving about it, and why ...

La Savonnerie
December 2, 2008
I love soap. And, much to my husband's chagrin, I love soap shops! A beautiful soap shop here in Amsterdam is La Savonnerie, where soap is being made by hand, the traditional way -- all with natural ingredients and all hand-stamped! Many, many, many beautiful bars of soap can be found here, in the most ...

Amsterdam toy warehouse
February 28, 2008
We got this wooden toy warehouse for my son's first birthday and it's a huge hit!  When he was little he loved opening and closing the doors and peeping through the windows, and his his big sister liked climbing into it very much (we went for the more expensive sturdy version with a bottom plate for this reason!).  ...
