OPTIONS! AMSTERDAM!

Options! Amsterdam via Passion and Obsession blog
A week and a half ago I went to Amsterdam & have already told you about some of the vintage stores & flea markets I love to go. Now its time to show you a very special store, that I love to visit, every time I go to Amsterdam! I can’t remember when I discovered this beautiful shop, but I already promised to write more about it. At the end of this tour I will show you, what I brought home from Options!
Options! offers accommodations at their Hotel The Exchange & also has a nice cafe right next to the Department store. The store Options! is just a walk down the street from the main station & it is close to many famous attractions of Amsterdam like The Sex Museum and the Red Light District. The spot, where you can go on a guided boat tour is right across the street & it is also not far away from Chinatown.
Once in the store, you can choose from designer furniture, stationary, jewelry, clothes and ceramics… Being a huge fan of all kinds of bugs, I thought these bug towels were very funny!

The last time I’ve been to Options! I fell in love with this little turquoise table & now wanted to take a closer look at it. This time there were much more tables on display, in all sizes & colors. Well, can you decide what your favorite color is? I can’t choose between yellow & turquoise…

Next to the amazing tables, I was impressed by the beautifully chosen decoration at the counter. The nice lady behind it told me, that these threads are not for sale, they are just the rests of the garn, they used for the mattresses at the cafe next door. Isn’t this just the cutest idea? I fell in love with the copper garn & the lady was nice enough to cut off a tiny little bit of it: now it matches my black letters I got there. Here you can see, how the mattresses look – I think they are gorgeous! Also, the sitting area had the largest tulips I have seen in my life! Again, isn’t this pretty? Here you can get an idea how beautiful the cafe was…

Of course I brought some souvenirs back home: I love to wear necklaces, I got myself a cow & a lion… To me this lion symbolizes strength & the cow is a perfect present from Holland, as you seem to see cows all over the place when you go to Amsterdam… They are so easy to wear – as they are light as a feather – the perfect summer accessory! The same applies to black initial letters. Love! Love! Love! those & I get a lot of positive response. Neon has been all over the place for years now, still, I couldn’t help but falling in love with this business card holder!
