"It's not just another shop... Not just 4 walls that could easily be replaced by a webshop. It was a warm embrace that couldn't be left out of your shopping day" . @lesfolies_clothing Leuven was more than 'just another shop'. It was a warm welcome, a lovely smile, a much needed talk, a helping hand and a hard goodbye. . It's sad to hear that such a wonderful shop will leave our city. I don't think I'll find another one like this soon... Let's hope the other shops of the chain will stay for a while longer! . #teamlesfolies#lesfoliesclothing#lesfoliesleuven#leuven#leuvencity#shoppingleuven#shoppingwithbestie#onemorebag#shopleuven#localshops#morethanashop#goodbyemyfriend

"Please stranger... Some spare money for my bookaddiction... Or some candles... Or perhaps some Aloe Vera products?" . Black Friday discounts are a dangerous thing... Especially if you're trying so hard NOT to buy things ๐Ÿ˜‚ So far I managed... . I would like to remind everyone that small businesses may not offer the big discounts that companies offer, but you get something so much better! The gratitude of someone who actually wants to make a living of their own little piece of heaven. They put so much effort in their little shop... How about a lovely talk and a friendly smile instead of a discount luring you towards something you don't actually need? . #ladyhenrysomerset#londonstatues#londonblogger#statuesintown#london_enthusiast#blackfriday#promotesmallbusinesses#handmadeisbetter#london4all#uktripadvisor#englandforall#englandmylove#travelblogger#bestunitedkingdom#secretlondon#aloevera#foreverlivingholsbeek#foreveringrid#handmadejewelsbyfede#thezencompany#scentsbysel#3bjewellery
