    De Kaft: Second hand CDs and books

    by lukky Written May 24, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    De Kaft has second hand books and CDs (and also some new ones I think). They also usually have fliers etc so if you want to see what's happening in town you could come there. The books are mostly in Dutch but there are some English ones as well.

    Limerick: English language bookshop

    by lukky Written May 24, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Near the main train station (St Pieters) in Gent there is an English language bookshop called Limerick. They also have (or at least used to have - it's been some time since I visited) a small café with several kinds of tea (great for me because after a couple of months in Belgium I was dying for some real Earl Grey!).

    Not sure how cheap/expensive the books are anymore but if you need some English books, it's worth a visit.

    The Difference: The Difference: Italian designclothes @ good price

    by Innovator Updated Apr 18, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This shop sells nice italian imported designer brands for male/female at a reasonable price, because they are not so famous as Armani or D&G yet.

    The brands were 525 & Spago Uomo Italia,....never heard of these, but nice clothes.

    I congratulated the shopkeeper with his nice shop and asked him if his shop was new. He said 'No, but people discover every day new things in life, and thats good for them'

    What to buy: Italian design - jeans & contemporary clothes - shirts, pants, skirts, leather jackets, some shoes,...

    What to pay: 50 EUR a shirt, and pants a bit more, but still good prices.

    Random and Quirky, that's Gent

    FALLEN ANGELS GALLERY, how cool!

    Yes, come here here for the splendid architecture and medieval charm. During the course of your walks across town though, you'll see boutiques and restaurants and gift shops unlike any in your hometown. See what they have to offer. Buy something. Or at the very least, take plenty of photos so you have something to show your friends upon your return from your holiday, other than those endless Gravensteen shots. ;-O

    So delicious!

    Ghent has some of the most marvelous chocolate shops in Europe. Not only are they delicious, but they look like pieces of art. I bought a box of chocolates home for my sister, and in the refrigerator they stayed good for two months. A must souvenir from Ghent. Wonderful Marzipan as well.

    What to buy: Fabulous Chocolate

    What to pay: it's worth it

    Groot Vleeshuis: East Flemish produces

    by tompt Updated Jan 11, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Groot Vleeshuis was built between 1407 and 1419 and was designed by Gillis De Suttere.
    Groot Vleeshuis means big Meathouse. A Meathouse was a covered marketplace where the selling of meat was centralised, this way the freshness and quality could be controlled. The selling of meat elsewhere was prohibited. At the south-east wing they added intestines-houses in 1542-1543. For hygienis reasons intestines had to be sold seperately in this houses. They were sold to the poor people.

    From the end of the19th century meat could be sold elsewhere, and the Groot Vleeshuis got a new role. It started as postoffice, served as a warehouse, an exhibitonroom and party room.
    Today it is used to promote east flemish produces.

    Open:
    tuesday-sunday: 10.00 -18.00
    closed on monday

    What to buy: East flemish produces would be:
    alcoholic beverages, mustard, chocolat, meatproducts.

    Vve Tierenteijn-Verlent: Mustard

    by tompt Written Jan 11, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Above the door is a sign: Mostaard fabriek. Inside it looks like time stood still. The building is a monument, inside and outside.
    Mustard is made her according to the same recipe as in 1790. Bring your own bowl and they put your mustard in it. Or you can buy one of the bowls on display.

    It was Vve (from the french veuve, widow) Tierenteijn-Verlent who started the firm in 1790.
    But they sell more than mustard. behind the nostalgic counters you will find spices and sauces, oliveoil and vinegar.
