Kloosterstraat – Antiques & vintage paradise

Are you a product of modern day society or do you consider yourself old school? Did you have swag when it was still called personality? Then my fingers won’t be able to rush over this keyboard fast enough to type this review.

The Kloosterstraat will connect you to the history of everyday people like you and me. This street has lovely antique, and vintage design stores dispersed all over. It is a small district that comes alive on Sunday, provided that the weather is dandy.

This amiable avenue harbours several venues where you can enjoy a beverage and an excellent meal. You even get to witness some locals wandering through this charming decor. People who say that money can not buy you happiness, obviously do not know where to shop!

My favourite Sunday ritual starts off on the flea market at Sint Jans Vliet located in front of the Sint Annatunnel. I am a sucker for old postcards. Thus, my scavenging hunt begins at this square and continues as I saunter towards the end of the Kloosterstraat. When I have not found any enchanting antique postcards, I usually continue my treasure hunt at a very different emporium named Your; here I can wander around and buy things that are anything but obsolete.

Compared with a lovely beach on the Maldives, this spot might be less exhilarating. Then again, you are coming to Antwerp. That being said, enjoy our local expertise and do not forget that this exciting life is free.
