Tired of the touristy lace and chocolate shops? Try some real antique at Greet Verbeke, an old house at the beginning of the historical Sint-Jacobsstraat, filled with curiosities and romantic finds from bygone eras.
Whether it be a collection of vintage butterflies, an old cabinet, the bust of some mysterious mustachy individual, or enormous bottles of Chanel N°5: everything stirs your imagination here. The store mixes its antique offer with contemporary art and this cocktail proves to be a tasty one. Shoutout to the enormous bronze dog greeting visitors at the entrance: one day it will be mine (I keep putting it on my birthday wishlist), but for now it stands there, acting as a very good doorman slash dog.
Sint-Jakobsstraat 53, 8000 Brugge
