Candy Shop: Treats for the Train
Where did my souvenirs go? Oh, that’s right I ate them. Now if a store is going to specialize, this is the way to do it… garish lighting and hundreds of bins of sugar treats. If they run out of your favorite treat, there’s a second Candy Shop close by at Vlaanderenstraat 7.

Planet Parfum: Scents from out of this World
Ladies. Is there really a need for a store devoted solely to perfume? Apparently there is, because this shop was doing a solid business late on a weekday. If you don’t make it to Oostende, don’t fret. Planet Parfum is a chain with many outlets across Belgium, particularly in Brussels.
