Eve looking at art at the Fishmarket - Brugge

Eve looking at art at the Fishmarket

De vismarkt (The Fish market): Not explicit reserved for fish selling! Art ,Souvenir and Food Shops Review

At the Fishmarket you can will find not only fish.
Fish is sold every day except Sunday and official holidays, from 8 am till 1 pm.

There is however a corner reserved for the selling of some art (litho etc.)
If you want to buy a nice souvenir to hang on your wall, then try this one.
The person who is selling them, is the artist himself and he is very much willing to explain you the technics he uses and why you better buy his then cheap but fake ones at shops.
Quality comes with price...

What to buy: Fish in the morning,
Art whole day!

Address: Fishmarket

Directions: at 2 minutes from the Burg (City Hall)

Theme: Art

statue at Het Zilverpand - Brugge

Het Zilverpand: a quiet oasis in the centre Art ,Souvenir and Food Shops Review

Giving out at the Steenstraat you will find Het Zilverpand.
It is a house block reorganised as a shopping centre with during Summertime terrasses in the innercourt.
It shuts you off from the noise of the traffic outside.
You will find lovely little shops there!

What to buy: I found here all kinds of shops, but their was one with nice wedding dresses and another one with very cute kids clothing.
Also you will find here lace shops, as you can find all over Bruges.

What to pay: Most of these shops are rather expensive.

rose got her choccies!!! - Brugge

A chocolat shop at the Stoofstraat: choccies!!! Chocolate Stores Review

One of the things you ought to do is try out the fresh handmake chocolats that are sold in many shops all over Bruges.
I usually stop at this little shop in the Stoofstraat because of the funny story the owner told me. Once she happened to get so many Japanese visitors coming in, that it was almost scary and she wondered why all of a sudden her shop was getting whole loads of them. She had often people of Japan coming in, but not that many! So after a few weeks she asked one of them and they told her that her shop was mentionned in their travelguide as one of the best in Bruges!
Now she keeps a photocopy of the page in that guide and has sticked it to her window... so it was not a notice of a missing japanese tourist as I first thought LOL
Funny thing is that out of respect and gratitude she has added all her signs and notifications in Japanese as well!

What to buy: Fresh made chocolats, but here I usually buy the Truffels...
soft fillings with champaign or amarreto tastes... mmmmmmmmmmm just delicious!!!
and if you are nice you might even get a little piece of chocolate to try out, without paying.

What to pay: oh... quality has its price `-)
but you can't eat too much of it so with a few/day you get far! and they are worth it!
