The renown US antiques dealer Amy Perlin, who passed away 2 years ago, named Bie Baert ‘the secret source of Belgium’.

The introduction text on the website of Bie Baert is written by Amy Perlin, who was a dear friend of Bie.

To read on the website of Bie Baert :

“Entrez sans frapper is Bie Baert's motto when you walk through the front door of her charming house in Sint Job in 't Goor, 20 km from the center of Antwerp, where Bie lives and works.

“I want people to feel comfortable when they come to visit my house“ Bie says, it has to be a bit like coming home, where you can sit in easy chairs, surrounded by warm wooden objects, naturalia pieces and comfortable furniture. Where the coffee and tea are always ready and where the atmosphere is warm.” (text Website Bie Baert)

Isn’t this inviting?!
