The Old Curiosity Shop, Brugge

 Whilst on a very mini break to Brugge, whilst wandering the city streets, we stumbled upon a shop called 'The Old Curiosity Shop'. From the outside, it looked like a little card shop, and as I was after some postcards as a souvenir, as well as loving the name especially bringing back the nostalgia of reading Charles Dickens and trips to Broadstairs as a child, we took a look inside.
 Inside, we found a vintage treasure/junk shop/classic stationers. I was completely in my element. If you love Snoopers Paradise in Brighton, this was a miniature, European version!
 I'm guessing the owner definitely loves Tintin!


Pieces were varying prices... we came out with a few vintage postcards, but if I didn't have a huge bag weighing me down, and more time, I'm sure I would've come back with the whole shop!

If you are a collector, vintage lover or just love a good snoop around thrift shops and are stopping by Brugge, definitely stop by The Old Curiosity shop!

  1. We love Tintin, especially Snowy who is the only one who has any sense! It's always lovely having a good rummage around a shop full of treasures.
