Place du Jeu de Balle Flea Market (Brussels)

Did you know that

The Place du Jeu de Balle, where Tintin strolls at the beginning of the  “Secret of the Unicorn”, was the starting point of many stories in the work of Hergé. The cartoonist found there many objects such as a suit or a bowler who gave him ideas for the adventures of his characters …

Besides, a Flea market dedicated to Hergé’s work is organized every year in Louvain la Neuve, close to the Hergé Museum. We expected the next edition of the Tintin flea market to take place again this year, but the Musée Hergé kindly contacted us to confirm that it won’t take place in 2015. Hopefully it will return in 2016!

And if you are a fan of Tintin and likes, you will be happy to know that merchants exclusively showcase items (books, articles, albums, originals, posters, figurines, toys, games, documents, etc.) relating to the work of Hergé.

    I was able to visit this market this past weekend on a trip with my family. I found quite a few treasures, I wish I had brought my rolling bag. I found some of the prices to be high, but not as high as Paris. There were lots of boxes to dig through which is one of my favorite ways to shop. There were some nicer tables as well. I made a stop by the Grand Sablon, the items there were beautiful and pricey. I did find a couple of beautiful books that were in my price range. Thanks for the heads up on this market.
    I will say my favorite market that I visited was in Waterloo, but if you are in Brussels these are definitely worth a visit.
