Shopping Singapore

Online of course. A bunch of local shopping sites that I found:
The Dressing Loft
Dustbunny Vintage
Two nice-looking sites, Suzz and Mollycoddle via Christine.
theClovers via Momo.

here’s another one:

ok, my 1st entry here.. was browsing thru manic’s site and me being such a voyeur, just gotta click on any link that says “b l o g”.. but seems like this is the only blog in sg with no signs of gossips.. so i might as do a littile advertising here on this topic. ::ootb:: is something me & my sis do in our free time.. pls excuse the poor photography if u drop by..

good u put these links up coz i’m actually trying to look for more local indie web-based fashion/accessories sites..

ok.. ya.. btw, i’m 1 of the guys at immortal u met the other day.

Posted by: stef at May 11, 2004 08:27 AM

Posted by: emily at July 7, 2004 09:44 PM

does anyone know how to create the hyperlink to whatever we type? pls help! thanks!

Posted by: emily at July 7, 2004 09:53 PM

Hi, you can use html code in your comments, but most of the time, I will just add it in when I see the comments. :)

Posted by: Karen at July 8, 2004 11:10 AM

hi thanks, but i’m quite a IT idiot myself. don’t think i can do html coding to my comments above :(

anyway, i am such a shopaholic..and i love internet shopping..hope that the local internet shopping scene can be more vibrant though. it satisfies my shopping craving when the shops are not opened at midnight (except for Mustafa!)

Besides, 2 other sites i found are if you like wines and stuff. as well as for bags.

Posted by: emily at July 8, 2004 10:01 PM

Some gorgeous stuff from Conversation Pieces

Posted by: Karen at July 9, 2004 05:38 PM

hi. apologize in advance for the OT. but need some feedback.
i’m starting an online shop and have a question for u seasoned online shoppers-
for a satisfying online shopping experience, are u adverse to sending payment online (by credit card in US dollars), or do u prefer order forms and payment by cheque or COD in local currency?


Posted by: PC at July 20, 2004 04:23 PM

Definitely COD or cheque in local currency. :)

Posted by: Karen at July 20, 2004 05:45 PM

missed the CNA show! are they showing it again? which sites were featured?

Posted by: emily at July 24, 2004 12:00 AM

Great thread.. This took me by surprise. I hope these great sites are not targetting local SG folks. Keep on posting!

Posted by: TYN at July 24, 2004 08:24 AM

PC, what are you thinking of selling online btw?

I managed to catch bits of the CNA show, but I didn’t see any sites that are not featured here.

Managed to catch bits of Tskye and ootb.

checkout this site for bags.

Posted by: theresa at January 27, 2005 06:00 PM

Hi Karen,

Are you a graphic designer? You are really awesome! I’ve seen the things you’ve made at Baked Ideas. You are good at so many things, from cooking to craftworks, writing and so on. How many mini websites do you have in all other than Baked Ideas and snog blog? By the way, could you share some tips on how to have my own blog? I’m new to it and know nuts about it. I’m a graphic designer in a small design consultancy. Your branding etc page is very helpful cos I am doing a branding guideline manual and the link comes in handy and just in time! Thanks! You really inspire me :) I came across quite a few cool design links too. Will contribute it later on in the respective categories. Hope to share more stuff with you in future.

Posted by: Beverly at January 27, 2005 06:28 PM

Oh thanks so much Charmaine for ur reco but is a pity most of the items r sold out. I am still hunting for a nice clutch haha …
