Spuistraat, 1012 Amsterdam, Netherlands
Sundays Are For Art at SpuiIf you're out for a Sunday stroll, check out the small art fair off Spui square, near the American Book Center. At 25 stalls, professional artists showcase original works, selling directly to passersby while local musicians serenade the crowd on harp and guitar.
Rotating exhibitors belong to an organizing foundation that unites some 60 local artists. Most display prints, small paintings, sculptures, ceramics and jewelry. Adding to the joy of finding treasures to bring home, shoppers can engage with the artists and negotiate prices without paying a gallery commission, which can exceed 50% in Europe.
