There is only one major flea market in the Netherlands and unlike in winter, they’re not always open every weekend during summer.
It’s called the Ij-hallen.
It’s called Ij-hallen because the market’s found along the Ij river, in the northern part of Amsterdam. The area was formerly the NDSM shipyard.
It’s a sign! Easter Island is calling me (:
We were on the lookout for an historic map to put on the wall of my partner’s office.
I’m tempted to say ‘who would buy this crap?’, but I suppose if they didn’t try to sell it, they’d never know.
Unfortunately, we didn’t find the map we were looking for. After a little over an hour, it was time to call it quits, but not before rewarding ourselves with some hazelnut gelato.
Maybe next time (:
