Visiting Deflt in The Nederlands is not complete without paying a visit to The Blue Tulip which is situated in a little street by the new church. It is open from 9.30 in the morning and Carolijn will give you a special Dutch welcome inside the shop. It may be slightly expensive but everything that is made in the shop is 100% Delft ware.

"De Blauwe Tulp" is a Delft Blue Pottery workshop and shop slightly off the main market square in Delft. They hand decorate their pottery in the shop itself, giving excellent opportunity to see how it is done. The artisians are very helpful and always willing to explain how this pottery is produced.
Besides their own designs, they will put custom designs or customised designs on the pottery. I had a set of pepper and salt pots produced with the names of a wedding couple. Within two days they were finished and they look stunning. Very pleased with them.

One of many lovely gift shops in Delft. This is one of a couple that is not filled with the plastic and/or mass produced junk marketed to the tourists. This is filled with good stuff. Worth a trip even if just to look around.

This is a nice little shop with some really nice Delft ware at reasonable prices. Located on the plaza just next to the huge church. We found many authentic Delft pieces unlike so many places that try to sell you the knockoffs. The staff seemed very friendly as well.

I'd read here that the shop was closed on Sundays so I was disappointed I wouldn't be able to shop here. However the owner happened to be walking to the shop as I was peeking in the windows and invited me in. It's a small shop but there are some lovely handpainted items created by his wife. Highly recommend.

I found this little place alongside the new church. The designs are so beautiful and I ended up buying a load of goodies for the family. There’s lots of designs and they’re all hand crafted in the shop itself. If you’re after hand-made Delft ceramics, this is the place to come to.

After shopping around many of the stores near the town square I came across this location. The prices maybe more but you can definitely see a difference in the quality of the pieces. The works are all done by hand and are unique and special. The shop owner is very kind and helpful. I can't wait to buy flowers to put in my new tulip vase.
