When in my part of our world it's raining (again), a nice place to visit and to see funny, strange or exotic decorations or furniture, is "Troc" which means "exchange" but it's rather a slang word.
When you have to empty an household for various reasons, because you move, or somebody died, you can put all things in this store to have it sold and of course they take a little commission.
Near Brussels is one of the "Troc" stores.
The entrance was full of mirrors of all kind and styles
a blue skeleton welcomed me. Unfortunately I forgot to look at the price. Maybe one of you wants to have it for your entry.
paintings, paintings, paintings, some good, some ridiculous, some funny and sometimes a real bargain.
This counts also for furniture tablewear or decorations
For everybody's taste there is something
Vases, masks, buddhas
an old radiator, a cooker and a vacuum cleaner
The frog made me laugh
lamps and also modern furniture
and if you need, an antique craddle is also available.
You can spend hours in there, sometimes I find a little thing to buy, but I have also bought some very nice furniture in the past, a real bargain.
