What do you do when you have 90 minutes in Amsterdam and you want to visit a really nice store? You visit Restored, on the Haarlemmerdijk. In a gorgeous old Fish and Fruit warehouse you'll find a beautifully curated collection of design products: from backpacks to ceramics and preserved flowers.
What I love about the store is that Restored is not just a nice collection of goods, they also like sharing the inspiring stories behind the makers of the products they carry. The lady in the store asked me if I had heard of Herman Verhagen, an Amsterdam-based pottery maker that made a capsule collection for Restored of cups and storage jars. I loved the glazings!
Restored also carries lots of beautiful independant magazines like Gather, Desegno and my favorite The Plant:
It's a new day, a new life a new dawn… fooooor you!!
The Alocasia Cucullata plant also loves the shop window:
In the same street, the Haarlemmerdijk, you also find beautiful shops like Sukha, Store Without a Home, and Tenue de Nîmes (with super friendly staff!)… and after all the shopping, treat yourself to a delicious French mini pastry at Petit Gâteau.
