Yesterday was a nice autumn day and I went to Amsterdam just to stroll around. I think Amsterdam is one of the best shopping centers of the world, with all those funny little boutiques. You should go and see for yourself one day. When I was walking down one of the canals, suddenly my eye caught...
Look at that brown dot at 9 o'clock!
Let's take a closer look!
That button must be the largest I have ever seen!
Of course! We are at the 'knopenwinkel'!
Knoop=button and knopen=button and winkel means shop.
Everything sings button over here; the doorknobs and even that nice little sign 'open' is made out of buttons!
Even the windows have been buttonized! (Did I just invent a new word?)
But of course we have come to see this^
These button canvasses behind the counter are a great way of displaying buttons.
On the counters a trompe l'oeuil and some real buttons are making a fool of your eyes.
(just click on the photo to have a better view).
It might be hard to believe but I left the store with only two buttons. But they are perfect and I am very happy! Just visit this lovely store one day, you won't be sorry!
