The 9 Street (De 9 Straatjes) – Vintage and independent shopping

Today I got asked about a vintage clothing market. I know of no such market in Amsterdam but then I started thinking, I bet they mean the 9 streets. The 9 streets are quite literally 9 small parallel street which connect through the 4 main canals in Amsterdam. They are known for having lots of fantastic little vintage clothing and independent designer shops as well as some great little coffee houses and restaurants.

Don’t expect cheap but always top quality. You may find some real deals on sale or just that thing you’ve been looking for. Certainly worth a stroll on a lovely day in Amsterdam.
