Vintage shopping in Amsterdam

This post has been a long time coming seeing as I went to Amsterdam two months ago but it's always useful information that never really becomes irrelevant to you travellers out there. Vintage shopping in Amsterdam is excellent - it almost rivals Paris, which I have already cited as the best city for vintage clothes - check out my Paris vintage shopping guide here. Anyway, back to Amsterdam. Most of the vintage shops are located in the Nine Streets District, along with lots of other boutiques and amazing looking cafés so here are my picks.

Ça fait longtemps que je voulais écrire cette poste vu que je suis allée à Amsterdam il y a deux mois. Bref, c'est pas grave parce que l'info est toujours utile pour les voyageurs. Le shopping vintage à Amsterdam est génial - il pourrait être un rival de Paris qui j'ai déjà dit est la meilleur ville pour acheter les fringues vintage - regardes ma guide du shopping vintage à Paris ici. Bref, on reviens à Amsterdam. La plupart des friperies sont dans le quartier des 'Neuf Rues', comme beaucoup d'autres boutiques et des cafés, alors voici mes préférés. 

Episode vintage shop Amsterdam Nine Streets District

Episode - Berenstraat, 1
Episode is certainly the most well known vintage shop in Amsterdam, thanks to their various other European locations, such as Paris and Copenhagen. Their selection is extensive, covering two large floors at their shop in the Nine Streets district. You can find pretty much anything you have been looking for here, from Burberry trench coats to retro Adidas trainers and cropped Lacoste polo shirts. The prices are good too - pick up a much sought after pair of Levis jeans for 25€, t-shirts and custom tops for just 12€ or sunglasses for 10€. Highly recommended.

C'est sûr qu'Episode est la friperie la plus connue à Amsterdam, grâce à leurs autres boutiques en Europe, genre à Paris et à Copenhague. La sélection est considérable - la boutique dans le quartier des neuf rues est sur deux grandes étages. Tu peux trouver presque tous que tu cherchais, comme des trenchs Burberry, des baskets rétro d'Adidas et des polos crops de Lacoste. Les prix sont géniaux aussi - trouves le jean Levis de tes rêves à 25€, des tee-shirts et des hauts personnalisés pour 12€ et des lunettes de soleil à 10€. Bien conseillé. 

Other locations / D'autres adresses:
- Nieuwe Spiegelstraat, 61
- Waterlooplein, 1
- Spuistraat, 96

A cute little vintage shop with just an amazingly decorated ceiling and chandelier! There's a great selection of velvet, modern dresses as well as seventies flared trousers and vintage skirts for 25€. Accessories are cheap - just 5€ for a woollen scarf or beanie. Downstairs, amongst the vintage flannel shirts, sequins and army jackets, you'll find a good choice of brand new Weekday and Cheap Monday jeans, including some velvet ones, which I was lusting after!

Une friperie mignon avec un plafond incroyable et un chandelier! Il y a une bonne sélection des robes modernes en velours ainsi que des pantalons pattes d'eph des années 70s et des jupes vintages touts à 25€. Les accessoires sont des belles affaires - juste 5€ pour une echarpe en laine ou un bonnet. Au sous-sol, parmi des chemises en flanelle, des paillettes et des vestes militaires, tu trouves une bonne choix de jeans neufs des marques Weekday et Cheap Monday, inclus ceux en velours que j'ai trop kiffé!

We stumbled across Marbles Vintage quite by accident after a lovely brunch in De Pijp and I'm so glad we did! The selection is great - you can find some more individual, different items that I didn't see in other vintage shops, such as velvet bodies and hippy, boho tops. The prices are pretty good too - great leather jackets for 50€ and Levi denim shorts for 20€. The shoe selection is also a treat.

On a trouvé Marbles Vintage par hasard après un bon brunch dans le quartier du De Pijp et je suis trop contente qu'on l'avait découvert! La sélection est géniale - tu peux trouver des pièces différentes que dans les autres friperies, genre des bodies en velours et des tops hippy. Les prix sont bons aussi - des perfectos magnifiques à 50€ et des shorts en jean Levis à 20€. La sélection de chaussures est juste top. 

Other locations / D'autres adresses:
- Nieuwe Hoogstraat, 12
- Haarlemmerdijk, 64

A much more up market vintage shop, well boutique. It definitely has that boutique feel - everything is beautifully presented and there are some really unique pieces. There is even a fancy dress floor downstairs where there are big Moulin Rouge style petticoats, ball gowns and sparkly bustiers. Expensive, but worth a look just for the pure pleasure. 

Une friperie plus haute gamme, plutôt une boutique qu'une friperie en fait - tous est bien présenté et il y a des pièces vraiment uniques. En plus, il y a même une étage au sous-sol pour le déguisement où tu peux trouver des jupes du style du Moulin Rouge, des robes de soirées magnifiques et des bustiers qui brilles. Cher mais il vaut le coup de regarder, juste pour le plaisir.
