Brussels’ second-hand and vintage
Gabriele Vintage is one of the best vintage shops in Brussels. Some even say it’s the “mother” of all vintage shops in town. Here you can find glamorous pieces from the roaring 20ies, cool clothes from the 50ies and hip stuff from the 80ies. The choice of accessories is endless. You’ll definitely find what you need for your dress. For sure also men will find here their perfect vintage dress!
Het Ivoren Aapje Book Shop
Het Ivoren Aapje is a book shop like in the movies. As soon as you open the door and step inside you’re in another world. And it wouldn’t be a surprise if you could buy magic books here. It’s as romantic as a book shop can be. Every single book here is hand-picked and if you love books you will spend hours inside here! Owner Frederik Deflo can tell you a story about every single book in here. The name of the store btw is from a famous Belgian novel.
Every first Sunday of the month you can find one of the best vintage markets in Brussels in Halles Saint-Gery. Besides vintage clothes and hand-made accessories you can stroll around exhibitions and enjoy good coffee and cupcakes. If you’re not in time in town you can also go to the vintage market at Place du Jeu de Balle. This market happens daily.
