An antiques emporium run by nine masters of the trade.
For the past 15 years, nine antique dealers have shared real estate in this 250m2 former factory, turning the space into a premier outlet for all things vintage and second hand: antique cast-iron shop signs, refurbished wardrobes, wall-mounted shelving (pre-dating Ikea), dish sets, home ornaments and other knick-knacks.
Belle Lurette is no amateur operation either – the dealers are all specialised, each managing a different branch of the business (there’s even a professional painting restorer on the team). The shop is swamped on weekends, but even during the week you can expect a near constant bustle of shoppers and fresh deliveries, as well as the din of saws and belt sanders from the workshop.
Prices vary considerably: a bedside lamp (circa 1970) is priced at €45, while a silver-plated spherical lamp from the same era will run you €460. But since Belle Lurette is the real deal, all prices and delivery fees are negotiable.
