I really like to shop. As in... I really, really like to shop. At one point in my life - aka buying my second Ikea PAX system, I had to be smart about it. And the good thing is that Antwerp gives me the right playground for it.
Second hand stores are a perfect way to find amazing pieces and still feel good about yourself in that vintage frock even when facing your banker.
If you have the time, why not try Think Twice and their deal weeks when the price of every item decreases every day from 10 to 1 euro? Yes, the last day, you can buy a-ny-thing for 1€.
You don't feel like spending time looking for the needle in the haystack? With an amazing and affordable selection of designs, going from major names like Dries Van Noten, to ultra hype designers like Devon Halfnight Leflufy, and even collection pieces from students at the Antwerp Academy, my ultimate favorite vintage shop in the city is definitely Rosier 41.
In the mood for spending that Christmas money? 2 stores - best selection in town - Houben and Louis.
The first one hosts brands like Céline, J-W Anderson, The Row, Loewe, and even the latest Belgian wonder Tuinch.
Wanna discover hip brands like MISBHV, Devon Halfnight Leflufy (him again!), AMI, or buy that Vêtements oversized bomber jacket you're dreaming about? Louis is your destination. (Psss... they go up to 70% on every item during sales.)
Enjoy your shopping!
