Amsterdam shopping

We did a lot of looking, not much spending, but we did actually part with our money in the two stores above.

The pretty gift shop pictured top, had a fine selection of gifts and cards.

The fabrics in Capsicum were a delight. Crewel work, ikat, block printed linens, embroidered sari silks; patchwork throws; all carefully chosen. I saw a brightly coloured necklace each bead made of sewn fabric which I had to have. I was almost as pleased with how it was then wrapped and put in a newspaper handmade gift bag.
