Antwerp is known worldwide for its designer and fashion shops. A shop that’s worth mentioning is Lokal, a little store at Oever. Oever – a cozy square to stroll and to sit in peace – is located in the city center, so it’s easy to find and to discover. You can find Lokal at the corner of the square, where the lovely Kloosterstraat begins. When the weather is great on sunday, I usually talk a walk through Antwerp and because the shops in the Kloosterstraat-area are open on Sunday, Lokal is a shop we visit regularly. My wife is a big fan!
First impressions are: small shop, unobtrusive and easily to walk by. Second impressions? A wonderful shop full of surprises. Lokal stands for handmade designs, unique pieces which are all locally produced. The collection includes all kinds of treasures, like clothing, jewellery, leather bags, cards and much more.
Are you looking for an accessory for your new outfit in that bag in your hand? Or for an exclusive present for a birthday or another special occasion? Then Lokal is the place to be for you. You will not regret it, only maybe your wallet might. You won’t be able to leave without buying something, just so you know!
