Anyone who knows me a little knows I have a penchant for vintage…. I truly enjoy hunting for original, unique must-haves…Preferably in a boutique stacked with racks… Compare it with Ali Baba’s Cave. It takes a lot of patience and luck but nothing is more rewarding than the finding of a unique item.
Here are my favourites in Brussels. Top vintage stores in the city centre with a great value for money.
1/ Gabriele Vintage, situated in the Dansaert district, offers a selection of the finest clothing and accessories from the 1920’s until the 80’s. Are you looking for a ‘one of a kind’ evening dress or a nice little hat? Then this is the place to be. There is also a men’s section. Did you know L-a-d-y G-a-g-a (Yep, the one and only) came here shopping?
2/ Neighbour store, Isabelle Bajart keeps up with the latest fashion trends. For this purpose she only selects vintage clothing and accessories that meet the newest trends. Good to know: one can really bag a bargain here in the traditional January and July sales!
3/ Ramon & Valy offers a selection of top-of-the-line outfits and accessories of (mainly) the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.
4/ Situated outside the main city centre on the posh Avenue Louise in a grand mansion, Les Enfants d’Edouard. Les Enfants d’Edouard is the pioneer of the Brussels vintage scene. They have 2 stores one for women and one for men.
