Just down the street from Anecdote, you'll find the multi-label store Collective Space Amsterdam, with an eclectic mix of everything from home accessories to clothes. The store seems pretty settled but from the sounds of things, they have many plans for the future and we will definitely be checking back in whenever we are in the neighbourhood.
Get to know Collective Space in this super quick "5 things":
ONE: "Feel free to step in!" Though the exterior of the store may look intimidating to some, the friendly staff in Collective Space Amsterdam hopes you will come in and have a look.
TWO: They have a beautiful patio at the back where they customers can get drinks and lounge about during the summer time.
THREE: Currently Collective Space is located in a 2 storey establishment with only the first level functioning as a store but they have plans to open the basement in the future and convert it into a luxurious space with many other things to shop and look at.
FOUR: Though customers and visitors of the store space have sang it's praises, they feel that it is just the beginning and so much more can be done to make the space even better!
FIVE: Fun fact - Their current store space used to be a squash court.
This is the back which leads to patio outside. The light was beautiful and if you don't walk all the way to the end of the store you would totally miss this which I did on our first visit.
