Het Grote Avontuur

Het Grote Avontuur Amsterdam

Het Grote Avontuur ( the Great Adventure) is a beautiful interior design and style shop that has been selling stationary and paper goods since 1994! This beautiful and cosy little shop has a lot to showcase, mainly vintage paperstuff, like old schoolposters, botanical prints, great books and their very own series of retro postcards.

Beside stationnary, Het Grote Avontuur offers vintage and bric brac furniture and unique items from all over the world (like those lovely miniature replicas of cars and vans from the 1970s) or from designers close to Amsterdam. A must see venue if you are buzzing around in Haarlemmstraat.

We loved: the genuineness and variety of décors and furniture on display, the botanical prints & retro schoolposters in Dutch, the surprisingly affordable prices and the warm and inviting nature of the shop’s owner.

Purchase: A few “retro” postcards and some miscelaneous stationnary (we were tempted to purchase an old schoolposter/botanical print, but our suitcase was already fully packed…)
