Go treasure hunting

Now is the perfect time to go hunting for treasures. Car boot and garage sales, markets and trocs, you name it. You can make bargains everywhere. Our neighbours Belgium and France offer many nice “brocantes” and antiques markets where you can find nice pieces at better prices than in Luxembourg.

I particularly  like to search for small vintage pieces of furniture, antique silver and ivory cutlery, crystal – and I have a passion for old french wine bottles and ceramics. My tip to you is to find out what you like, what you need and what you’re willing to pay, then go hunting for that special piece. Not only will you end up with a unique and reasonable object, you will also help the environment by recycling…
