Shopping Photos

I am sharing some fun photos from my August Baltic cruise today. It's all about shopping!
In Amsterdam
Inside the cafe of De Bijenkorf
 This certainly has taken the food court/cafeteria to the next level.
 Love the clean and modern vibe!
 This store sign in Amsterdam's reads:
" your husband called, you can buy whatever you like!". Neon was/is all the rage!
 My favorite cheese is Gouda! Most beautiful cheese display that I had ever seen..
 Love that cute shopping tote at the cheese shop
"Interesting" store name in Amsterdam
 and sale sign in Copenhagen... we had to laugh at this one!
 at St. Petersburg's cruise terminal

 On the cruise ship--Russian Bazaar
I ended up buying a set of nesting Matryoshka dolls on the cruise ship ( no Vodka though).
Vodka ( that's $29.99 US), anyone!? 
This conclude my entire Baltic cruise posts! Hope you are having a great weekend!

I really enjoyed this post, V! Such fun photos! My fave has to be the one with the sign that reads "your husband called. . . !" Wish someone would tell ME that! (hee, hee)

I'm wondering what is in the 2theloo shop... are they actually selling toilets? LOL! $29.99 vodka? Bargain! And in such a cute bottle. I wonder if it tastes good? Which matryoshka set did you buy? I bought my daughter a set a couple of years ago, and I still adore it (I think she still does too).

It's almost like traveling with you and your family...your photos are fabulous, V! I especially like David with the cheese bag, what a smile.
I started my set of Matryoshkas in 1973 and I still love adding to my collection. I LOVE that "hubby permission" store sign, it's brilliant!

This looks like a gorgeous and super modern place to shop! Your pictures are gorgeous! I especially love the 50% off sign. I'm guessing it doesn't mean the same thing in Amsterdam that it does here in North America :)

Greta said...

Oh my goodness--what a wonderful trip! Think I could really enjoy Amsterdam! I want that pink neon blouse! So fun to "travel" via your pictures, Virginia.

Thank you so much for sharing these beautiful and interesting photos of your trip with your family. What wonderful memories all of you will have of this time together.
Love your sense of humor. I would want to bring home something special from each country. My favorite is that cute cheese tote. Were they selling those also ?

Living vicariously through you, my friend! Those dolls remind me of the ones my Russian grandma gave me as a little girl! Just breath-taking!

Oh rats, I was so getting used to traveling with you! Well, you are just going to have to do this again soon, and then tell us all about it! Love the slut sign, too funny. I swear I've seen the big, white, circle light from the food court before. The cheese bag is hilarious! Landscapes are pretty and all, but I love how you include the details in your photos, those are often the best memories. Thanks so much for sharing!!
