Famous in Amsterdam in the Vijzelstreet is this Aurora shop which is here for ages as long as I can remember. Everything about lightning, electricity, communications and small appliances is here available. When I was young my father bought his electricity needs already here.
The oldest part of the shop is in this little house dating from the 18th centrury with a unique
"neck gable". Although the selling of light bulbs is forbidden by the European Commission since 2012 they still advertise to buy them here I see. The shop expanded in different buildings that are connected inside with each other.
