About Sandeboetiek

Collecting militaria has been my hobby and passion since I first got a steel helmet from my grandfather when I was 10 years old. After that my one and only mission was to collect a fully dressed WWII German, British and American soldier… and so it began.

After collecting for many years I gathered many contacts in the militaria world and I started selling items as well to fund the hobby. In 2019 I started Sandeboetiek, based on the word ‘Santeboetiek’ which by the Flemish-Ghent’s dialect means ‘a bunch of old antique rubbish’. Some outsiders might see our hobby like this, but of course we know better.

Sandeboetiek is an antique shop that specializes in original World War One & Two militaria. This is a website for serious collectors, historians or museum curators only and not for people with extreme right ideology.
