My neighborhood …. Haarlemmerdijk in Amsterdam

Groteavontuur

*Guest post by Joelle Wehkamp

I live in the “ Jordaan’, a famous neighborhood in Amsterdam, nearby my favorite shopping streets the ‘ Haarlemmerstreet’ and the “ Haarlemmerdijk’. Here you can find a lot of nice little shops. Dangerous for your wallet but oh-so-nice! Last weekend I did my weekly shopping. Let me take you to Amsterdam for a few minutes. On the Haarlemmerstreet you can find ‘ het Grote Avontuur’. Here you can treat yourself on furniture and home accessories.Their style is folklore mixed with second-hand style! I always want to buy something.

For the most tasteful oils and vinegars you must go to Meeuwig & Zn. They offer you a lot of choice and in the back you even can drink a small beer if you want. I bought wonderful lemon oil! MMM! And together with a freshly baked bread of ‘Vlaams Broodhuis’, a few houses away, it is a perfect afternoon snack.

There is something funny going on at Haarlemmerdijk 41. During the week it is an empty store but every weekend something new and different pops up in this place. Which makes it every time a surprise. Last weekend it was Nooosugar who popped up. Nooosugar makes stunning handmade cushions, bedspreads and more. They sell their products normally on there website, this little popup store was just a try out. I fall in love with their beautiful colored stripes. Very curious which brand will pop up next time on number 41!

Restored  

Restored is a shop and atelier in one. Started by two young designers who create all kinds of unique products. Restored is a fashion, interior and accessories store. And you can find other nice young designers as well. I always walk in for a quick view. And it’s always lovely! Look on their web shop to buy a nice little present for yourself!

To make this little shopping perfect, I end up at ‘het IJscuypje’. I am truly an ice cream addict so you maybe can image how glad I am with this wonderful ice cream store just around the corner. Their ice is made of fresh products, it’s creamy and the shop looks just very simple and cute. You’ll find them on different spots in Amsterdam.

Thank so much Joelle for this shopping spree at the Haarlemmerdijk…can't wait to go there in August!

    Echt een super locatie om te wonen, heb zelf ook 1 jaar gewoond, ik mis echt om door dat straatje te kunnen banjeren, maar goed woon in Haarlem en die heeft ook leuke straatjes:-)

    Bedankt voor de tips, ga er gauw weer eens heen.

    What a beautiful post… I’ve been to most of the shops already, but didn’t know about the pop-up store at 41. Does anyone know more about it? Is there a website or anything?
    Looking forward to checking it out again soon…

    i remember walking in amsterdam as a tourist and running into your studio by chance while looking for some cafe listed in lonely planet. i’d been reading you for a while by that time and it gave me such a comforting feeling of actually having some connection with the place. Haarlemmerdijk is awesome, and your post made me miss your city with such intensity, i think i’m gonna find some way to get there again before too long.

    Just for today I will have a program, I may not follow it exactly, but I will have it. I will save myself from two pests: hurry and indecision.
