Too Many Vintage

too many vintageThere aren’t many vintage shops on this blog, I know. That’s because I’m not the most eager thrift shopper in town. But the selection at the newly opened Too Many Vintage could convert me: oversized woollen coats, large cardigans and leather skirts … yes!

You’ll find the shop on Rue des Chartreux, on the spot where Origami used to be. You can’t miss it, it’s the shop with the big yellow neon lights. Too Many Vintage is run by Audrey, a vintage lover from France who discovered Brussels during events such as the Vintage Market. The name of the shop is a wink at the Belgian electronic music band Too Many DJs and the fact that Brussels already has quite a few vintage shops.

But I feel there’s something different about this latest addition. Audrey bases her selection on what’s happening in fashion at the moment, and seeks high and low for similar pieces from a couple of decades ago. That’s probably why stepping into Too Many Vintage doesn’t feel like a trip down memory lane, more like walking into a contemporary boutique.

I love the selection of winter coats, from classic long ones with a fur coat, to large oversized ones, leather perfectos and entire (fake) fur ones. They’re very reasonably priced, starting at 60 going up to 200. The big cardigans are a hit too, from plain coloured ones to multi-colour models, with or without appliqué patterns. Same goes for the flannel checked shirts (for men as well), as the suede jackets and leather skirts.

There’s a selection of bags, shoes, scarves, gloves and other accessories as well.

While you’re there, pop in to Brocéliande for great vintage furniture and home interior inspiration, or go for great pizza at Divino.

33-35 Rue des Chartreux, open from Tuesday until Saturday, from 11.00-18.00 ( 19.00 on Friday and Saturday)
