This quaint, ivy-covered shop in the peaceful St. Anna neighbourhood, around the corner from the Lace Museum and the idiosyncratic Jerusalem Chapel, is where a family of craftswomen offer some of the most authentic lace available in Bruges. Unlike a lot of tourist shops that fill their window displays with lace products, the antique pieces sold at the trusted ’t Apostelientje are one hundred percent handmade. There’s antique doilies and garments, as well as contemporary pieces laboured over by two sisters and their mother. Their enchanting dreamcatchers are enough to inspire getting some lace-making supplies of your own (also available in the shop) and give this delicate craft a try.
