Temploux

In 1978, the fancy fair of the village celebrated its birthday. For this event, an inhabitant of Temploux proposed the organization of a secondhand trade. The comity found this idea a little bit ludicrous but some secondhand dealers settled down on the place of the village.

In 1979, the association " ARDENNE ET MEUSE " chose Temploux in order to organize his " A DAY OF HANDICRAFS ", great success for artisans and for ten or so secondhand goods dealers.

From year to year, these secondhand goods dealers arrived more and more numerous. Since 1985, the Press has noted that Temploux has become the most important secondhand trade in Belgium.

The present form (circuit of 6 km able to welcome more than 1.500 exhibitors) has existed since 1987. Temploux stays indisputably the greatest secondhand trade of the country ; some experts even say the greatest in Europe.
