To go antiquing in Brussels is to bask in civility and ease. Stay hard by the Gothic, gilded Grand Place - a square called on of the most beautiful in the world by no less than Victor Hugo. Walk half a mile to the Place du Grand Sablon, the premier address for fine antiques, it is also the site of a small weekly antiques market (all day Saturday, half a day on Sunday) that sets up in jaunty red and green-striped canvas stalls. A much larger market, especially on weekends, takes place in the Place du Jeu de Balle, but to find something worth carrying home requires wading through mountains of not-even-vintage housewares. Allot most of your time to the shops radiating out from the Place du Grand Sablon.
