antiek amsterdam style

strolling around amsterdam across the canal i spotted just what i had been looking for "antiek" ...and antique store. my week here was spend scouring for this word but this little, or should i say large shop, inside and out, made my heart skip a beat!
the building that now houses this beautiful antique shop was once home to a bakery that made honey cakes - the outside and inside of the building still bare the markers of its previous life - the bee skep on the top of the pillar and the tiny bees and blossoms all in relief on the outside of the building were just spectacular... below are some interior shots

a glimpse into the restoration workshop and the business card of this wondrous place.. visit if you get a chance you wont be disappointed!!
