We found this amazing lego block display outside of a shop called DOM in Amsterdam and it immediately go out attention. Especially Burger's since he is such a toy fanatic. Inside the all black store were designer & kitsch housewares, accessories & knick-knacks.
Burger picked up the bright orange umbrella (Dutch cheering color!) at Centraal Station when we arrived as the weather was way gloomy. It adds a bit of whimsy & pop color to his otherwise dark outfit. I gave him the chess piece chain (I have a matching one in white) which I found at A-Land in Seoul and extended the original black chain by adding a few inches of gold chain to it.
If you ever find yourself in Amsterdam and want a quality magazine & bookshop,
Athenaeum Nieuwscentrum is the place to go. They have a huge selection of fashion publications, design books & not-so-touristy postcards and its a great spot for browsing & people watching.
