In the States, one can purchase a small, hand-held luggage scale to check the weight of your packed luggage (so the luggage doesn't weight too much at airline check-in time). These scales can often be found in luggage stores (in the States). --You simply hook one part of the hand-held luggage scale onto the handle of your packed luggage--and lift--scale and luggage---the scale indicates the weight of the luggage. These scales cost less than $10 (9 Euros). QUESTION: Where, in Amsterdam, can I purchase one of these scale??? My wife and I do not want to be surprised by over limit luggage at the airport----a luggage scale would be a BIG help. Please help, I need to know of a specific place (name of store, address, and phone number would be great). Simply suggesting that I go to luggage store, hardware store, or department store is not helpful. I tried over 20 such stores in Venice, Rome, and Amsterdam---with no luck. We are due to fly out from Amsterdam in a few days, so I need help rather quickly. Any specfic help would be most appreciated. -----Jaes.
