This was one of Amsterdam’s original thrift stores and has been a huge eco-friendly success story, adhering to principles of sustainability that see almost nothing thrown away. Everything sold here is secondhand—tatty old jeans are up-cycled into shorts, gauzy evening frocks given a new lease on life, and fresh items of clothing are cleverly created out of old. Two more stores are found at Berenstraat 1 in the Nine Streets, and at Nieuwe Speigelstraat 61.
