New local products pop up shop in Arnhem
Sometimes you come across a shop that you didn’t notice before. “Exit through the Gift Shop”, a new local products pop up shop in Arnhem is one of them, and a good example of why I started this website in the first place!
Arnhem has a couple large tourist attractions like Burgers Zoo and the Openair Museum (those are GREAT!), and people come here to shop at Primark or any other big label store. They don’t tent to look further, and stroll anywhere else than the main shopping street. I want to show tourists and expats that there is more to Arnhem than these places. You just need someone to tell you about these hidden gems. And that someone is me ;). For example this “hidden gem”:
“Exit through the Gift Shop” can be found at Gele Rijdersplein 6 and will stay there until February 1st so you’d better not wait too long to pay them a visit.
What does “Exit through the Gift Shop” stand for?
The gift shop collaborates with creative minds, designers, starters, idealists that create hand made products. These handy-crafts, fair trade, Arnhem Designed, 2nd hand, eko & vintage articles make for great gifts. Since the season of gift-buying had begun I suggest you pop in for a look. Gifts cost from 1 euro up to 250 euro.
What does “Exit through the Gift Shop” sell?
All kinds of things! From Graffiti-art to origami lights, from chocolate tot designer jewelry. Knits, postcards or candles: There is a story behind every article.

Next to all the local produced gifts, you can also buy high quality Japanese pottery and hand made candy by “Papabubble” from Amsterdam. This delicious candy does not only taste good, it also looks amazing. It even comes as a Christmas edition. Take a close look at the photo and you’ll see a little reindeer and Christmas tree!
