Mr. GJ, The reason my wife is willing to go back to the Netherlands year after year is for the Shopping, true the architecture, art , great food, and friendly people are also a bonus. But the wife loves to shop, and as long as there are a fair number of pit stops for smoking and Belgian Brew, we are happy as can be in good Ole NL. Best shopping cities outside of Amsterdam that we have been to were Utrecht - nothing but acres of Shoe Stores, Hand Bag Stores, Jewelry Shops, Antique Shops and Used Record Stores, and the largest indoor mall in the NL and Delft - the obvious China and Awesome Lace shops, although we usually buy our Delft at Heinen on the corner of Leidsestraat and Prinsengracht (Pgracht440) or Spiegelgracht 13, they are not the cheapest, but definitely some of the nicest. Also Hogendoorn & Kaufman at Rokin 124, their stuff from Russia is really nice. If you mail me with the types of stuff she likes to shop for, my wife probably knows a few places to find them. Also if she likes choclate, take her to Puccini, you will get major points. Later, BB
