What a hidden gem! A thoroughly professional, yet endearingly personal experience at your quirky work/retail space. Comfortable and suitably fitting, for the vintage pieces you have carefully curated,... which you interestingly reflect. It is a pleasure and privilege to meet someone who is passionate in words and actions about what they do, especially in a livelihood as niche as yours. I wanted to ask in-depth about your customised process of making a cake-stand (of which there is hardly any detail on this site or the etsy page), but time was not permitting.

Extra thanks for helping me, when I did not expect it at the beginning of this first visit. You have been most gracious, and I will be engaging your services again :)

Delicious buttery scones & full flavored chicken pies ! Love this quiant little cafe right smack in chinatown next to outram MRT. But be prepared to work out a sweat before reaching the cafe … it's o...n the 4th floor… but burning some calories before you attack the snacks will do u good! :) Once u're there - check out that retro fridge it's very cute!

Thank you for the safe delivery on my Tuscan teapot. Delivered all the way to the UK in only a few days and arrived in excellent condition given it was so well wrapped. Thanks.

The British sense of quirkiness in design and style is evident in their novelty teapots. One of my favourites is Ye Daintee Ladyee, produced by Sadler pottery in the 1930s (or earlier!). The teapot shaped like a crinoline lady comes in different colours and variation, some with hand-painted faces and some without. Whenever I see one of these I marvel at how imaginative the maker was!

I wonder if late Victorian style was the earliest advent of Shabby Chic style as we know it today? These early 1900s antique china plates look so fresh and modern - who would have guessed they are a hundred years old?!

A Brown Betty is a round belly teapot with a brown glaze known as Rockingham glaze. In the Victorian era, when tea was at its peak of popularity, tea brewed in the Brown Betty was considered excellent. This was attributed to the design of the pot which allowed the tea leaves more freedom to swirl around as the water was poured into the pot, releasing more flavour with less bitterness.

A stunning orphaned Royal Albert Crown China teacup from the 1930s that deserves a new lease of life. Pairs so perfectly with this Salisbury saucer that they looked like they started life together.

We love this unglazed terracotta planter in the form of a woman's head bust, great for planting in the sizzling hot summer!
