Beautifully curated and stocked lace museum/shop. Located away from throngs of tourists in a quaint and idyllic part of Bruges. Every item is either antique or new handmade lace, collected throughout the district by the shop's owner. A true delight!

A little off the beaten track but well worth the few extra steps. Lovely variety and knowledgeable staff. A cute little shop. After visiting the museum across the street I understood why this beautiful lace is so pricy. Seeing ladies make the lace by hand...More

This tiny little shop in a pretty street displays beautiful antique lace. A great change from the many tourist shops around. The place to go if you are looking for authenticity, and conveniently placed next to the lace museum. The owner is very friendly.
