The store recently grew in size, adding a basement full of gifts, books, furniture and boy’s stuff. A must in Brussels.
Gorgeous northern light

The store (Em72), featuring jewelry, accessories, books as well as clothing by brands carries Forte Forte and Inamorato, two labels that I really like.
If you are looking hip, colorful clothes, Claude Hontoir is the right spot for you, especially for 6-10 years old children. Amazing choice.
This store has been around for a long time – it’s an institution in Belgium.

I have a weakness for Little Circus. Lovely, charming, full of surprises and very creative displays.
Other spots not to be missed : Caramel, Mercredi, Kat en Muis, We were small (children’s stores); Maison particuliere and the Wiels Museum (art).
And a great restaurant : Vismet. Sint-Katelijneplein 23 Place Sainte-Catherine, 1000 Brussels

Now, let’s Salome talk about her business and about things she cares for…
