This place is found on one of the streets out of the Grand Place. This store is dedicated entirely to Tintin. It has everything: all the comics, all kinds of plastic dolls, plush Tintin, Snowy, and Captain Haddock. They even have clothes, the logo is Tintin's face. It's especially for young children, but there are some larger shirts or sweatshirts. What surprised me is that the store was super full, especially with Chinese people, buying like all.
In the center of Bruges, in a wooden building that appears to be the oldest in the city, lies a surprisingly modern shop area with drinks and good music, which is great. It's called 2 be. The last thing you imagine is to find that in that environment, with embroidery and chocolate shops for tourists. Delicatessens of all kinds, food and drink really well presented and placed in spaces with an original modern lighting.
Do not eat too much candy: it's not good for your teeth. But it is impossible to avoid buying at least one bag of candy at the store Zucchero, especially when you're seeing the whole process in front of you. From the moment you enter the store you will already be salivating. Its smell and color catch your senses and submit you to their will. Lately I've taken to comparing everything with the stories, but Brugge is no comparison to them because its homes, streets, bridges and canals appear to be part of a decorated movie set. This all makes sense. This store could be the candy house in Hansel and Gretel. On video, Hansel gives us an original perspective on the history of sweets and their relationship with the witches.
It sells decorations, especially Christmas decorations, in the heart of Bruges. The store is so called because it is also known by the same as the building it is in. At the top of the facade, which dates from 1672, is a pelican, hence the name. The shop is very cozy with lots of trees and Christmas decorations, many made of glass and fairly priced. It has two floors, the street level and a lovely basement and brick arches. It's worth going not just to see the decorations but also to see the basement itself.
This is one of the most original shops in all of Bruges, where it's Christmas every day of the year. Käthe Wohlfahrt is a German franchise of stores that sell Christmas ornaments. They have stores in different countries, and in Bruges there are two: one in Walplein and another inBreidelstraat (the road linking the two squares of the city's tourist area: Burg and Markt). The store is cute, and is chock-full of Christmas figurines, from cribs to endless ornaments to hang on the Christmas tree. But more shocking still is to find Christmas decorations in the middle of the summer!
The bookseller in the Fafouille used bookshop has white hair and wears glasses for close reading. He wears brown corduroy pants and well-worn leather straps. A pocket jacket with a black ink stain. Perhaps you are plagiarizing a poem without realizing (it happens to those ve read a lot). Maybe you are caught up with a sudoku puzzle or struggling to define "A puppy in distress III". Children? Nature? Collections? Humour? Drama? That will leave you with your problem and get lost among shelves that smell old. Snooping to find a bike with a dodgy wheel while there are countless bikes out back. The light was shone on me and I was totally spellbound.
One of the most popular thrift stores in Antwerp, in a big room with tons of clothing from the seventies and eighties. Although it's also possible to find clothes from the fifties and sixties. From Episode, it opened in Antwerp before London, Paris and Amsterdam, I like almost everything except their prices. The place and its air of industrial premises, the background music, handsome dependents, the suits had taken our parents if they were Belgian. Now: 30 euros for a skirt worn? 25 for a dress? Broken? Vintage is only meaningful when the value is better than that of H & M. At least for me.
On the way to Watertoren, located on the dock in the south of the city, you should take the opportunity to go through Kloosterstraat Street which is full of antique shops and second hand items for sale. Some specialize in toys and other things for children, others in exotic objects and 70s memorabilia. In short, it's a nice street on the way to Watertoren to do some shopping.
This shop, in the centre of Tournai, is full of furniture, trinkets and antiques of all kinds. An amazing bric a brac collection that seems to never end ... stairs, corners, narrow corridors that seem to lead to secret rooms ... definitely worth visiting!
If you want a souvenir from Tournai, this is the place to go! The small shop has shelves full of diverse beers, including baskets of bottles of Belgian beers. There's a variety of other drinks, too, and each beer has its own particular glass.
