10 X the best tips for this weekend in Amsterdam
❶ Some promotion for my own weekend tip! This weekend I will be at the IJ-hallen on Saturday September 7 and I will sell a lot (but really a lot) of clothing, shoes, bags and more for ladies (no baby clothes). We will soon be moving to our temporary home, so it was important to start getting rid of stuf and organising all our stuff. The proceeds go to my money box for the world trip. Which I will certainly tell more about later! See you on Saturday at the IJ-hallen in Noord? They open the doors at 9 AM, so come on time for the best finds! Address: T.T. Neveritaweg 15 (PS: I have a corner booth, but booth numbers are unknown).
❷ The Czaar Peterstraat is becoming more and more fun with all the new entrepreneurs who recently opened their doors there. Reason enough to go to the annual Czaar Peter Festival on Sunday September 8. With stalls, food trucks, live music and more entertainment. Read all about it in the Facebook event >>
❸ Always fun! This Sunday, the Sunday Market will be back at Rokin at the Oude Turfmarkt alongside the water from 12pm. With good food, drinks and of course stalls with crafts and more! Check out the Facebook event >>
