9 straatjes and rozengracht

there is a lot of fun on the little 9 streets bordered by rozengracht at the north: lines of vintage stores, dusty bookstores in dutch english french maybe a little russian, galleries, and handsome design from the mid century (and late century). if i were living there, i could go to the Noordermarkt and get some sweet secondhand verner panton or arne jacobsen for a few euros. ahh.

(yes, roger noticed in the top photo it is pages out of Exactitudes by Ari Versluis and Ellie Uyttenbroek of Rotterdam that are posted onto the circular window! this is at the wonderful Athenaeum bookstore where i could get copies of purple fashion, frame, and self service.)
