WEEKLY WINNERS - A British Store in Brussels


More participants here at Sarcastic Mom Weekly winners

A friend had told me that outside Brussels is a quiet big English store. The name of the place was Everberg and of course I had no idea where it was. I asked my Mrs. GPS and off we went. She directed me to the countryside !



When I arrived I really found myself in front of a Manor ! I had never seen such a store in my whole life. It really didn't look like a shop at all !



The two floor store



the name is correct !



Have you ever driven through a door like that to go shopping ?



The entrance



A telephone booth as decoration in the garden



and a friendly "Welcome" sign



even a "Manor" dog was there.



on the other side of the street was this big farm



and the geese couple greated me loudly



Poor guy, spring has not yet begun and he has already horns growing !

I bought delicious scones and sauce for Chili con Carne and some other things I don't get in a normal Belgian supermarket.

What do they sell in there English stuff? I would have never thought it was a store. Looks more like a Ranch House or something. It's pretty. Great photos :)

These are interesting. You should consider joining in Unknown Mami's Sundays in My City meme, too! :) I'm always interested in shots from around the world...

I love any English stores, Im sure they would sell something I MUST HAVE. Hope that big dog is friendly.

I wondered if they had the wonderful English mint sauce that goes so well with lamb. I went to Harrods in London one time and bought some there! Oh, it was fabulous!

what a lovely place to visit. I'm sure the scones were delicious and I do hope you got a cup of tea as well.

I really like other countries stores. In Toulon we have an irish store where you can find things you'd never find here. This manor is beautiful. The right atmosphere for a nice shopping. I posted today on my blog! Spring is in the air and this afternoon we have to vote again.

What a great spot! I've never been to a store like that before, either. I love it!

What a fabulous place! But... but... but... NO photos from INSIDE!? Gattina... you're slipping! Or... maybe that's for another post! Maybe? It is a beautiful place! I would have enjoyed shopping there, for sure!

That is a really lovely shopping area. I love the shot of the farm.

Looks lovely Gattina! I still miss Marks and Spencers. :-(

That looks like a wonderful store I wouldn't mind to explore! Yes, I've seen something similar in Scotland, but never any where else. It's just soooo niiice!

That is quite the store. Love the phone booth in the garden.
