Wandering around the 7 Streets area of Amsterdam on Leliegracht we came across Egg Mercantile a lovely design boutique run by Steven and Joshua - 2 Americans who have settled in this international city and opened the shop in 2006.
The stock is suitably eclectic and international including Heather Louise's exuberant and often downright weird one off dolls made from felt, wool, glass beads, vintage buttons and quartz fish charms.
This beautiful horned cup by Karin Erikkson is just part of Egg Mercantile's extensive stock of Karins work
Not sure who's these prints are by but they are quirky and original.
Large Fancy Avian Platters from ibride, can be used as 'framed pictures' on the wall or actually used as trays.
And ceramics from Lola Goldstein. The shop is packed with lovely items from loads of the best makers from Holland Europe and beyond.
The best thing is that if you don't find yourself in Amsterdam before Christmas (and I think you should) then they have a great website where you can order direct!
