  My little Jennifer at her christening
by Caroliendegrote

My parents are Belgian. I was born in Ireland and life in Dublin.
Last week we have made a family visit to Brussels. I wanted my husband and children to know where they come from.
My mum was surprised to see the store she bought a christening gown for me is still existing.
It's incredible. They are probably the last real Belgian lace producers. Other store only sell cheap copies from China.
I even used the christening gown my mother bought for my children.

Really a place to visit !!! and the ladies are soo kind and helpfull

What to buy: lace : tablecloth, handkerchiefs, doilies, christening gowns, wedding veils, antiques,......
