Wunderschöner Laden mit extravaganten Artikeln! Definitiv mein Lieblingsshop in Amsterdam. Leider sehr hochpreisig, Besuch daher nur mit vollem Geldbeutel planen! more »Beautiful store with extravagant articles! Definitely my Lieblingsshop in Amsterdam. Unfortunately very high-priced, plan to visit only with full wallets!
Bel negozio, una scoperta inaspettata passeggiando per Amsterdam, ho fatto un bell'acquisto seppur ad un prezzo abbastanza elevato more »Nice shop, an unexpected discovery walking through Amsterdam, I made a fine bargain albeit at a fairly high price
Really excellent gothic/romantic horror stuff in a nice space. Great selection of beetles and butterflies mounted very nicely for hanging. A bit pricey but some really fun and beautiful items.
Great shop to get any scientist excited, especially go check out the mechanised insects that artist Mike Libby has made!
