As mentioned before on this blog, Belgians seem to have a thing for vintage. There are clothing stores, furniture shops, websites and flea markets selling all sorts of treasures waiting to be discovered. The most recent addition to the Brussels second-hand scene is the vintage fair.
Created about a year ago, Brussels Vintage Market takes place every first Sunday of the month at K-nal (near Tour & Taxis). The idea is to bring together vintage and second-hand vendors in one location for an enjoyable afternoon with music, food and drinks. Items for sale include clothing, shoes, bags, accessories, etc.
The Brussels Vintage Market offers a cool and cozy atmosphere and good prices for relaxed shopping on a Sunday afternoon. There are also cupcakes on sale to sweeten the deal! If you’ve got some interesting used items that you want to sell, contact Morgan Laloux at firstname.lastname@example.org. The next Vintage Market is on Sunday, 6 May.
1 Avenue du Port. 1000 Brussels
Open: First Sunday, 12-7pm
If you can’t wait until May, another new kid on the block, The Hub Sunday Store, will have its first vintage sale this Sunday, 15 April. The Hub Brussels, which provides sustainable working spaces and networking events, has gotten together with Swishing, a clothing exchange concept, to launch the Sunday Store. The monthly market will feature vintage and hand-made clothes, accessories, vinyl records and furniture. Check out their Facebook page for a preview of what will be for sale. Food and drinks also on offer.
