The buzz: This retro-themed, multi-label fashion and lifestyle store is inspired by the communal markets of 1960s Singapore—and who doesn’t love all things vintage?
The vibe: The sprawling, open-concept 7800 sq ft space is a blast from the past—it’s designed to resemble a row of traditional shophouses, and is festooned with an array of (legit) vintage furniture, such as old box TVs, rusty tin signs and weathered shelves. It’s quite kitschy, really, but it’s also a whole lot of nostalgic fun.
The goods: There’s a pushcart stocked with tidbits (20 cents upwards) from our childhood days, such as White Rabbit milk candy and brightly colored Fancy Gem biscuits. You’ll also find a range of knick knacks like vintage timepieces, old tin boxes and model toy cars, all at pleasantly low prices ($1 upwards—we’re not kidding). It’s not all dusty stuff, though—there are also fashion labels like GALA and trt offering contemporary apparel.
Why you’ll be back: Items are refreshed monthly, so keep checking back for new trinkets to decorate your home with. Plus, plans are in the works for an old-school pastries counter—who wouldn’t come back for that?
