Zipper / Zipper is one of the oldest second-hand stores in Amsterdam and was founded in 1979. The Zipper includes two stores in the city center, a permanent spot at the Noordermarkt on mondays and an occasional Warehouse Sale. It is driven by one family’s love for vintage goods. Twice a year they visit America to find the best items for their shops. A two week work trip of wondering in big warehouses and sniffing around at wholesale markets. When sorted out, the clothes still need to be washed, dried, ironed and price tagged. When all of that is done, the clothes are finally ready to go to the stores. I love this store and always score a nice new vintage piece of clothing!

Jutka & Riska / One can only loooove this store! At Jutka & Riska you can buy vintage clothing, their own label clothing and the prettiest accessories! I like to come here to look for a new hat or a cute bag, sunglasses or affordable jewelry. The shop offers one of a kind products. Because of this, prices for these particular items can be a bit higher than most of the vintage clothing shops.
