La Vieille Bourse

Hidden In Plain Sight
The Vielle Bourse building, seated right in the bustling Grand Place, conceals one of my favorite parts of this city. In the courtyard you’ll find a quiet market of books, posters, and antique trinkets that is easy to browse for hours on end. I always make sure to take a detour through when I have an unhurried walk through the center of Lille.
I usually make a beeline for the boxes and boxes of cool vintage postcards – I love to read the backs and become part of strangers’ conversations! On a slow sunny day, you can often find a small crowd gathered to witness an intense match at one of the several chessboards. Every time I go, there is something new to browse – definitely worth a peek!
