Funshoppen is the self-made Dutch word for ‘recreational shopping’ or retail therapy which, according to the national statistics office, is an increasingly popular pastime. Some 20% of women’s leisure days and 10% of men’s days out are spent trailing round the shops for enjoyment.

"Kijken, kijken niet kopen", it's a Dutch expression that means, "Look-look no buy".

Window shopping is a fun and inexpensive pastime enjoyed by people all over the world. The process involves walking through a shopping district or mall with the express purpose of looking at the window displays for each retail store in the area. People may choose to window shop as a way to pass the time, get ideas for displays that can be used at home, or to collect some inspiration for future gift giving.
