The Antiques Centre Amsterdam is located in the centre of Amsterdam, at the Elandsgracht 109. The Elandsgracht is the gateway to the popular shopping area The Nine Streets.



The Antiques Centre Amsterdam exists for 36 years. In 1978 the old Peugot Car shop at the Elandsgracht was discontinued. The big, typical building was immediately designated to become the antique centre De Looier (the Tanner). This name referred to the many tanners who, at the end of the 17th century, were located in this part of the Jordaan to practise their craft and founded their guilds here.
Nowadays, we have a new name on the building: The Antiques Centre Amsterdam, to emphasize the national and international style of the Centre, which is visited daily by our regular customers and tourists from all over the world.
