Without any doubts Het Faire Oosten is the most gezellig concept store in Amsterdam Oost. The warehouse of 600m2 hosts a big store and workshop rooms. Magali Heuberger, the founder of the place, and her team put a lot of effort to make the space cosy and inviting. And here come the good news: the second HFO store opened its doors on Javastraat this October.
Het Faire Oosten is known for supporting local brands, and the choice here is fantastic. Curms, Yoni, Bamboo Groove, Smittens Knuffels, Nanini, Tolhuijs, Butcher’s tears, El Jefe Primo Salsa, Bliss, Skills or Skulls skateboards — you name it. The range of goods is quiet big: from furniture, home accessories, toys, food, books and gifts to clothing, jewelry, cosmetics and art. Get ready to leave with a little something even if you didn’t plan on doing any shopping.

When you enter Draagbaar, the first thing to grab your attention is not a nice piece of jewelry. Not even a fancy sweater from a local designer.

Laura and Kim, the friendly founders, will help you make a good choice.

Come here for the brands like Marlou Verheijden, NOMODE, studio JUX, VINTEC, Beitske Bouwhuis, Kirste Offringa, La Nonette, ESSA Design, Ella Nitters, Afgestoft, Leo Cahn, Define Vague, UTEK, PERKA design, Tante Lien, Erik Dijkstra and Cactus Billy.

Recently moved within Amsterdam Oost, Doordeweeks offers a great combination of shopping and styling. Discover the vintage and new designs, clothing and accessories from the independent local brands, furniture and art objects for your inspiration. Treat yourself with a professional make-up style: will you choose a ‘simply the best’, ‘I dare you’ or ‘Paparazzi ready’? Hair styling options and even a fast epilation and tattoo cover are also available. Absolutely brilliant idea for the girls only pre-party. NB: Doordeweeks has 2 stores: Ferdinand Bolstraat 147 (De Pijp Amsterdam) and Eerste van Swindenstraat 22 (Amsterdam Oost).

The Cool Collective is a temporary concept store with a great choice of fashion, lifestyle and vintage items. Do you remember this feeling when you leave the fancy concept store upset, cause you can’t afford that super expensive leather jacket? Forget it. The Cool Collective offers very attractive prices for brands like Maison Scotch, Supertrash, Amsterdam Monsak and many others. Besides that, it’s a great place to look for a nice gift. And they have a tipi in the house — if that’s not a great reason to drop by, what is?
