Refreshing an old topic
In Brussels for few years now, and only a newbie crafter, but I can share a couple of store finds
Chien Vert - fabrics
Rue du Chien Vert 2
They have three shops in 2 localisations (next to each other).
1, is for fabrcis for home deco, they do some projects etc.
2, is for general fabrics. Big choice, nice staff to help.
3, the most amazing for me, is the puce de chien vert - leftovers. From teh little scraps laid down in the baskets, to big leftovers, you can buy fabrics half price. Choice is huge, so in most cases you'll find what you need. This shop is like everyday Christmas
Ava - party, diy deco, paper
The same street as Chien Vert, just further along the canal. They sell... a lot. Great if you want to make your own party - they have big choice of disposable dishes and cutlery and all the deco you can think of. All the supplies to create your own invitations, but also wooden structures for decoupage, all the supplies for decorating (stickers, glues, inks, stamps, paints, name it). If you're into that stuff, you just gotta go and see for yourself, it's amazing.
What I could not find in here is... mod podge. Anyone knows where I can look? I will ask at Ava (I don't remember if I did, actually), but Brico was a fail. I finally got a special paint for photo transfer (this is what I needed mod podge for), but I prefer the original product - since it's so much more versatile.. and cheaper.
