Paplou, the authentic store, started as a second-hand and vintage shop. But soon grew to a vintage and design store, merging new and old items into one authentic concept. In 2011 I joined my sister to help her manage the shop until it was transferred to the new owners. The shop is still in business in the center of Hasselt.

In 2009 I co-founded the art gallery Alley in the center of Hasselt. The goal was to give street art and young upcoming artists a chance to showcase their work. The gallery still exists today as a design studio for art and illustrations.
