In the centre of Amsterdam you'll find Waterlooplein, a square named after the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. Every day people come here to shop at the famous flea market. Waterlooplein first became a marketplace after the city government decided that Jewish merchants who operated in the neighborhood had to move their stalls into the square. By 1893, the daily market thrived.
Just about every day, since Robbie Waterloo was five years of age, he could be found at Waterlooplein. His father and grandfather held stalls at the market. Now Robbie himself is a well-known stall holder, dealing in new and second-hand items at Waterlooplein. Robbie loves the people who come to the square, and loves that every day at Waterlooplein brings an element of surprise.
