Dutch Goods: 4 Hip Concept Shops in Amsterdam

June 20, 2018

With the opening of numerous small, curated concept stores by young, mostly female shopkeepers, Amsterdam has become one of the most interesting shopping destinations in Europe. Such places sell an eclectic array of goods — everything from clothing, shoes and accessories to housewares, home linens, candles, cosmetics, jewelry and art. Here are four that we found particularly worthwhile.
