Always wanted to find those perfect vintage cowboy boots? Do not look further because this is the place to be. On the hip and trendy Nederkouter there is a thrift shop called Vintage factory. It is a compact store where every inch is covered with treasures. Ghent is late to the trend of vintage stores, so the arrival of Vintage factory has not come too soon. You might already have heard of them, since they have several locations in the Netherlands but are unique in Belgium.
In the shop you can find a variety of clothing, but they focus on cowboy boots, All-Stars and all sorts of funky shirts (think Hawaiian). If you get tired from browsing through the clothes racks and trying on clothes, you can relax in the lounge and drink a cup of coffee.
When I go there, I always check the counter as well — they have lovely earrings and other jewelry that is hard not to want to buy.
Bonus: there is always some kind of deal going on to save a few euros.
