Well, this week the Nessascityblog household has been afflicted by the Great Antwerp Belly Flu of 2019 which seems to be doing the rounds (gentle hugs to you too if your home has been similarly affected). I have not felt much like blogging, so this brief post is the best I can do this week, I’m afraid.
Take a stroll down to Cuperus Coffee Bar on Paardenmarkt for this closet sale, from midday -5pm and grab a bargain – Cuperus is also a really nice coffee bar.
It’s the monthly Strip en Boeken Plein at de Coninckplein for lovers of secondhand books and print.
There’s another closet sale at Lazy Jacks on Kattendijkdok, from midday -5pm
Are you, or do you know, a young person who has taken part in the Climate Marches recently? If so, he/ she can get a 20% discount on any purchases from any of Antwerp’s eight second hand stores. To get the discount -show a selfie of yourself on the march. It’s available until the 8th March.
Last week I published a special post by Bart Meeus of Fine Wine Junkies -an local start-up, sure to be of interest to readers who enjoy unusual wines, not available from the supermarket.
Legends of Liondance continues until Sunday 17th (it has been extended!) at Permeke library, as part of the Chinese New Year festivities. This is a colourful display of the lions used in Chinese Lion Dances, and is free.
Next month is Youth Book Month -encourage your young reader by checking out the agenda: there will be lots going on at Bib Permeke.
