Belle Lurette - Trolls et Puces

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
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.
