About the MarketIf you are addicted to antiques and are avid collectors, the De Looier Antiques Market is a great place to spend a few hours. The antiques market is a covered market and one of the most interesting in town. The market began 37 years ago, when antique collectors weren't able to find a decent place to display their unique collections. Many of the merchants are Israeli who arrived in Amsterdam and haven't been able to leave since.
The market has stalls where you can find books, dolls, toys, rings, paintings, jewelry, writing utensils, and a wide variety of items from the 17th, 18th, and 19th century... The market is open 6 days a week, and contains more than 10,000 items on display from 55 different merchants. The market is spread over 1,750 square meters. The merchants make sure to change over items and bring new things.
