There are not many Dutch Surplus Shops left. Especially when it comes to
technical materials, like radios and such. But apart from the few real shops
that still carry parts that interest us collectors, there are also a number of
hobbyist traders. No shop, you will have to call them in order to make an
appointment. Menno Putman lists them all, I only list some that I personally
know and enjoy doing business with.
Big establishment in the coastal town of IJmuiden, not too far from
Amsterdam. When entering, you will wonder whether you've found the right place,
as the front of the shop is dedicated to camping gear and clothing. However, in
the back is the technical department, where all sorts of goodies can be found.
The people are knowledgeable and friendly. They are also quite prepared to ship
internationally, though e-mail is sometimes somewhat slow with them. The web
site is quite good and kept up regularly.
They also do Medical Surplus...
The only real old fashioned surplus shop left in the Netherlands - also, no web site. However, a
visit is worth your while. Goods are stacked to the ceiling and overflowing into
the area where one tries to walk around. Not only military, a lot of other
electronics as well. Be sure to call before going, as the opening hours seem to
shift. Near to Rotterdam.
