Shopping Singapore II
I got tired to scrolling through the 84 comments every time I came to this thread, so I’m consolidating everyone’s recommendations here. Thanks thanks thanks to everybody for their nice links and please keep them coming so that we can have the best collection of local shopping sites right here!
Update:I’ve decided to close this thread because it has become cluttered with a bunch of not-so-nice sites which are not recommended by anyone other than the owners or their friends. The original intention was for people to share nice links that they’ve come across, not for it to be abused as a form of free advertisement.

Hey I happen to like surf ard and got to your site.. and was wondering do you guys have a online site that actually sells shoes onli..
I am a shoe freak basically..
Love wat you are doing here aniway….
Guys,i love you.
Stumbled onto this blog and hell,
this is the best thing since I discovered yahoo! auctions!
try www.ickycat.com for funky UFO pants - great for for hip-hop classes or nights of bling.
Hi! I got here from Dsng’s page and I couldn’t resist the urge to add to your list of shops. My friend just set up a shop selling earrings at Rachel and Judith. I’m not sure if it’s the kind of thing you guys will like, but some of her designs are lovely and the prices are very reasonable (~ $9 to $11). I love what you have here, by the way. I have learnt a lot about typography by reading your entries. =]
hi, not surprised tt so many ppl actually love online shopping…coz they r simply great!
view this website for nice shoes and bags…
keep posting. :-)
hey karen, thanks for taking the initiative to set up this local shopping website. it’s great! rest assured that i’ve bookmarked this page on my browser!
anyhoo, here’s 2 of my recommendations:
all things pretty
www.eastsentials.com (currently down)
Check out this newly launched website at http://www.beadythots.com for comtemporary and vintage styles handmade beads jewelleries.
This is a one-stop shopping for men. Ladies, you can shop for gifts for your man. Highlights- You can find lovely flip flops from havaianas at this website.
I have to recommend going to InQbox Far East Plaza & look at the handmade kebaya from a brand name chantiq skaly. It’s beautiful!
the website address is chantiqskaly.com
I was directed to this site from google.
Wow! Very good links you have there!
Personally I also have an online shopping site on BEADS Jewelleries, where I design and supply to various shops in USA, Australia and some in local hotels.
Chain Of Beads
Am sure to visit more here :)
Ooohh love this website…Anyway check out my friends website Ola-Lola !!!
can anyone guide me to a site that sells high fashion eg Tod’s or LV?
I bought a few pair of earrings from a website that I saw here - www.ameliasgems.com I like the earrings and the owner is very nice and helpful too. In fact, my company D&D coming up soon and I thought of buying another pair from her..hee..hee…this time something elegant maybe…but I wonder how come her website not updated yet since I last saw it though…hmmmm..think I’m gonna call her and ask..
Hi, i posted a comment yesterday but somehow my comment didn’t appear so I thought I’ll try again. I had bought a few earrings and one bracelet from Amelia’s Gems (i found the site here, right on top). I’m very happy with my purchases and the earrings and bracelets comes with gift boxes!! I don’t have to figure out where to hang the earrings..hee..hee..and I’m thinking of purchasing another pair for my upcoming D&D! :-) vain huh?
I think this is a wonderful thihng that you started. Do keep it up and i will keep a look out for interesting websites.
Tired of beaded accessories? Check out our site, nice local handcrafted jewelries using stained glass and metal. You’ll love it!!
One thing I’ve noticed about local shopping sites is that the owners tend to sell things that they import rather than things that they make themselves. Is this true?
Yep! The trend now is that the owners shopped overseas for things which they think cannot be found in Singapore. Many bags and accessories can be found in countries like Thailand, Indonesia and so on. The things there are cheap and it’s even cheaper if you buy in bulk. It’s easy to start a shopping site with only a small capital. It’s a lucrative business and many local shopping sites are springing out just like that. It’s different from the last time where people sell things which they made. People who sell handmade things are more of as a hobby to them and the sense of satisfaction they get when they see people on the streets wearing or carrying the things they made.
i totally agree wif Beverly… the feeling of having someone recognizing and liking ur product enough to wan to buy it is realli realli satisfying… which is why I price my earrings at very reasonable prices, unlike many online shops I noe which prices common simple earrings at over $10…
Anw I’m one of those dat like to online window shop… cos never actually buy anything frm shops themselves… other than auctions if u’d consider dat a shop too. Juz wondering if many pple actually buy those bags, apparels and accessories online… since as Beverly said, many of these can actually be bought at a very low price at places lyk Thailand…
love your blog. could you compile a list of great online vintage fashion shops from Singapore?
even if thailand or indonesia is near, the cost of travelling there and accomodation is also not that cheap. vendors also need to buy and price their products sufficently to cover the cost of travel etc.
Yes, the cost of travelling to other countries are not that cheap. I agree with Sally that the vendors do have to price their products sufficiently to cover their costs. I know this as I have sold imported handmade beaded sandals before. People do buy bags, accessories and apparels online. As for how many, I do not know. The disadvantage of shopping online is that you cannot try or touch and feel the products before deciding on buying. The advantage is you can shop at the convenience with just a click and also, you can get things which you cannot get in Singapore. Some of the vendors I know of has actually priced their imported products quite reasonably or even a bit lower than the price overseas. (referring to US & UK). It benefits shoppers as they do not have to travel all the way to get the things they want. It saves on the travelling costs. I myself do buy things online too. So far, I have bought myself a top, a brooch, 2 bags and a necklace for a friend. It all actually depends on individual. Different people have different views. For me, if I really like the things that I see online and find that the prices are reasonable enough, I would buy it.
Yar I agree wif the not being able to touch for feel or try on the clothes u see online… and for me I’ve decided against buying clothings online already because the few times I bought tops online I’m usually disappointed wif wad is sent to me… maybe photos are really deceiving? Haha…
Anw I’d just updated a new batch of earrings on my shop, finally finished exams… *phew*
Pls visit to take a look…I’m waiting for my fren to design a nicer website for mi… so gotta make do with this in the meantime…
I think it’s not a matter of whether or not they are common simple earrings. I think it’s the quality of the materials used. I have ever seen two shops selling the same design of earrings. But the 1st shop uses Swarovski crystals and when I asked the other shop, they used either plastic cyrstals or glass crystals; hence, they charge lower prices. I think prices cannot be judged just by looking at the design BUT by the materials used. By the way, I’ve just bought myself a few pairs of earrings (online, of course!! *LOL*) and paid about $11 on average for each pair. I’m happy and satisfied cos I know it’s the quality and authenticity of the earrings that count :-)
Well, the materials used do matter to a certain extent but I believe that workmanship is also very important. If one pair of earrings uses a few swarovski crystals and just hang them together in a line, compared to another pair of earrings which uses normal glass crystals but have them hung together in a complicated design with alot of twisting of wires, but cos of the material used, the first pair sells much higher than the 2nd, which would u buy? I tink I’ll get the 2nd one, afterall… how difficult is it stringing swarovski crystals together in a line? And the thing is, there are many of such plain earrings out there but uses good crystals… so, actually, it’s realli up to the individual themselves…
Hmm… dats quite true too, abt Zenoa’s pt abt the quality of the beads used. As for my shop, I do not use Swarovski crystals but glass crystals, which might explain why I could price my earrings at this price. That is cos when it cums to crystals I like to make earrings that have alot of them, instead of juz a few, which actually cant make up how nice a design la… and if I use Swarovski crystals for that, the cost price will be rather high and the price will be way higher… I’d like to tink of it more of selling my design and workmanship. Well at least I’m upfront abt it and dun overcharge. I know of frens who got cheated many times online, by sellers who claim on their website that they use Swarovski crystals, and when they paid up the exorbitant price, the earrings they received uses nothing like Swarovski crystals. That’s rather unethical I tink…
YES it’s true alot ppl buy from Thailand. Even if they make the necklaces and earrings themselves, the materials used are always beads. In order to make your design stands out from other ppl’s design, I would say it’s pretty mind cracking. That’s why I moved away from beads and started using stained glass and other materials.
I find local market too small and hard to make a living selling online, so I started selling on ebay and that has fetched me better sales. My user id on ebay is bumbum124, check out my works! :)
Has anyone bought any clothes online before? I would like to hear views on that cos i saw some really interesting clothes on bordello princess.
Visit www.jewatch.com for one-of-a-kind piece of Jewelries and Vintage New Old Stock Watch
Hi, just accidentally dropped by. Found alot of info on online shopping. I usually shopped from Auction, now I have more choices to choose from. Thanks!
I’ve bought from Bordello Princess before. It was a poncho, in good condition, but what was not clear enough from the website picture was that the thread used for one of the colours had run out, and a substitute was used to finish off the poncho, which resulted in two similar but distinct shades. The other thing was that the colour was not as seen on my monitor - it looked deeper than the real thing. Neither of these I blame on the vendors of that site, as it is something you definitely have to check out for yourself. Ask for more photos before buying, and, seeing they ARE local, go look at the product for yourself if you really love it.
I love vintage, and have been buying for years when I lived away. The bad part of vintage is that it is unique, often used, and not standard sizing or colour. There are no substitutes. So check carefully before you buy. Also check dimensions carefully - does the length, etc suit your height and size, assuming the waist and other essentials fit.
One last thing. I do feel the prices at bordello princess, and a number of the local vintage sites rather high for the item, as compared to equivalent to other overseas vintage sites. Sure, there is a cost for bring it over here. But you could consider doing the shipping yourself.
I’ve tried some US-based sites:- Good reliable ones I’ve used are www.vintage-instyle.com (Michelle updates her bag styles a lot, and her descriptions and pictures are an education in themselves). Her site is not fancy looking, but uploads so well that it should be a a lesson to those who have loads of fancy graphics with no decent stock to show for it.
Also www.poshvintage.com. This is a very hip 70s influenced vintage site with a nice section on reworked vintage. Beautiful pictures.
For lower cost vintage, try www.vintageblues.com. For the latter a bag got damaged in delivery, and they were very good about giving me credit for it for future purchases.
The plus of local sites is that you seldom have to have postage, or much, if you do. Bordello delivered to my door for free, and the item was well wrapped, no smells (very very important!). I’d buy from them again if I saw anything I liked, but they don’t update their web stuff as often as I’d like. So do your checking on pricing and shipping as well. If you love it..of course…!!
Anyway, nothing was as expensive as a bag I had bought at Potion, which was wayyyy overpriced for a no name bag. But I was talked into it so my policy was to enjoy it :)
Hey, thanks for sharing your experiences with us!
I bought necklaces from Ola-Lola and Green Petals and I was rather satisfied with their service. I even bought bags online before.
One thing I like abt online shopping is that most of the owners actually provide extra customer service since they need support from consumers like us. Unlike when you are walk-in customer, sometimes the salesperson don’t really bother abt u.
If there is one thing abt the salesperson in Sg is tt they are either have this can’t-be-bother attitude or too pushy. PS. This is just a general point of view.
i thought i might, since my term’s almost over, use my paprikan address for this comment!
just aired today, they’re the new sweetum to sweep the nation!
see details: they’re set for
FarEasts’ Timberlux & Zouk Fleamarket booths
Hey, isn’t that Diana from Paprika?
I just realised 3/4 of the links here are for girls. Heh.
Hey, I have been reading your blog and its really good for shopping list! Must say its really useful.
BTW, have contacts for free new products for all the big brands for cosmetics and skin care except Shiseido. Are you interested?
Of course I’m interested. I love trying out new products. Heard that Prescriptives is pulling out of Singapore end of this year. Gotta go get my stash.
Yeah man, better order the stuff before they are all out. The Prescriptives at Tangs will be there till June. The rest of the outlets will be closed this May if I am not wrong. Need to get my custom blend powder! Oh man… gonna look for another equivalent brand.
Just wanna mention the online shopping sites which I have bought things from- Bag of Love, Urban Nymph, Surreal Style, Rachel & Judith and Life Story Designs.
Kudos to the owners of Bag of Love & Urban Nymph for their great customer service which I feel are very important and essential for their customers to want to go back and shop more. So far, all the things I bought online are all in good condition and I am very happy with the products.
If you and your friends are interested in testing new cosmetics products before it gets launch, I have just the thing for you.
I am helping my friend who owns a French cosmetic testing company call Syres. The website is www.syres.fr. Go check it out if you are interested. You get to test all the big brands except shiseido, products which they intend to launch in a year’s time. And we will only give you products suitable for your skin.
If you are interested, just email me at email@example.com and I will feed you with more details.
Let me know once you have replied by posting another comment here. Thanks!
You may be interested in checking out www.cosmeticscop.com, where they review hundreds of cosmetic products. I was terribly interested in seeing the expensive compared against the drugstore brands to see if there was any difference. Up to you to decide if the reviews are accurate or reliable but considering how much we spend on the stuff…worth a look!
I popped into Orchard Emerald today and there was a great little handbag sale by Inspira - very low priced fun bags, all their own designs. Third floor. They have a sale on this week for beaded bags. I bought two!! I am hoping ther will design a bit more upmarket models since I like their designs a lot.
As a matter of fact, I’m using some products from Paula’s Choice. Someone brings it in to Singapore.
I’m using the One Step Face Cleanser and Final Touch Toner, both for Normal to Dry Skin. And the 1% Beta Hydroxy Acid Gel.
I like the cleanser and toner enough, but the 1% BHA Gel doesn’t seem to do much for me. There is a slight improvement, but I think I should try out the 2% BHA products.
Hi, anyone can suggest where I can find gorgeous clutch bags? Saw some realli lovely ones Conversation Pieces
Hi! Stumbled upon this blog accidently.
Really very informative! Thanks for the info.
I am interested to make my own beaded accessories. However, I do not have any leads to source for the materials. Can anyone assist me?
Is/are there any local distributors/wholesalers for the materials such as crystal beads, glass beads, findings, etc?
Would appreciate your kind input. Thanks so much.
There are four shops in People’s Park Centre, including Golden Dragon, which sells beads.
There’s one at the basement of Heeren, a very big shop called Beads. And then one in Holland Village called Beads @ Work.
Thanks Karen for the useful information.
If I’m looking at buying in larger quantity, are there any local wholesaler where I can get the materials cheaper? Anyone knows?
Found a very interesting Singapore jewelry site I was happy to come across while searching for a unique gift for my loved one. The TLC Collection is hand-crafted with genuine semi-precious stones. Worth a look for guys wanting to find that perfect gift - then again, I’m sure women would adore it too! ;)
Hey Karen, thanks for the great list of sites!
Had a good time browsing through them and eventually bought a few items from Luxe Ideas - leather clutch (soo yummy…compliments every time i use it!), letterpressed notecards and Moleskine notebook. I’d definitely recommend them.
Look forward to hearing about more new sites from everyone!
Gosh.. this is a wonderful site! I so love it. And some of the links are just superb. Kudos to you! c”,)
Anyway, there is this site which sells clothes & bags which are so affordable yet gorgeous. Found the site thru Yahoo Auctions.
Hi! This is a TERRIFIC site!!…with so many links to online shopping sites, the possibilities are endless!.. LOL
Just bought some stuff from this website called Amelia’s Gems and luurrvved…it. She also showed me new jewellery stuff that she made which she hasn’t updated on her website yet…lovely man!

Hi all… I simply love this webby! Its so informative practically on everything a lady would be interested in…. And I love all the websites recommended by the many members here. :)
I am actually into a small business with a friend, dealing in female clothes and apparels. And we thought of looking for suppliers. Any idea if we can go into any websites whr we can get more fashionable stuffs for ladies? Those we been to, only accept orders of 1000pcs and above! Gosh…and we hope to get from asian countries…European countries are way too far and the shipping takes too long to reach us…
Would appreciate very much if anyone could contribute some knowledge on such informations to me… tks alot!
Jame, looks like the internet is not a good place to look for work clothes, unless you’re working virtually. But once you get here, you’ll find no shortage or real shops to buy work clothes from.
I found this website which has links to other e-shopping sites. Some has been mentioned in previous threads. What’s new would probably be links to sites where you can get stuff for ur home, ur men and kids. And Of coz.. gotta to thank the owner of this blog site. This is a really cool blog!!
hey! this place is just overloaded with info!
let me join in.. keke.. just bot a pair of earrings from the above site - handcrafted accessories. not bad at all! and nice packaging too! :p

While swirling about in front of the mirror one day in a self-tailored dress, it struck us that perhaps other girls would enjoy swirling around in our designs as well.
And so Swirl was born.
Our clothes are dreamt up by two girls who picked up dressmaking from scratch and inspired by vintage and timeless designs that we ourselves love.
We source for fabric here and overseas, and are always on the look out for rare vintage fabric to add that special touch. Quantities are kept small so as to keep our designs exclusive. You will never be caught wearing the same outfit as someone else.

just noticed that an online boutique’s name —> forestprints @ www.forestprints.com
was mis-spelt and mis-placed as a foreign designer.
she’s singaporean actually. but her designs are pretty popular and well-received in the U.S. and i think she has a new label name “littleoddforest”
Just read the Sunday Times and did a search on the google for Chain of beads and found this link. Just for those looking for the site, it is http://www.chainofbeads.com here.

Great web! I’ve visited all the viable websites. Did not know Singapore had such great online local shops. Great idea of yours to collate all such webs for us girls! Thanks! =)
I stumbled upon this local online jewelry site and realized that they have very nice stuff. Thought of sharing with you guys ; )
Handmade jewelry mostly earrings…feel free to take a look around :)
Wonder why i couldnt seems to login to these 2 sites? : (
Another site to share:

it’s got really nice jewellery! bought 4 from this website. LURVE IT!
Just set up this site to showcase some handmade jewellery. still in the process of upgradin it, but pls, feel free to take a look. thanx…
hey this website is juz absolutely fabulous! anywayz i juz like to noe is there anywhere in spore where i can tailor make clothes and dresses?
for evening/ cocktail dresses try fashion clinique at stamford court. if you wear business shirts, i suggest personality menshop at penninsular hotel’s shopping arcade - i’ve tailored some shirts there, they have great cutting and workmanship. They cost from $60 for japanese fabric and $80 and up for european fabric. Another place is maharaja men’s shop at the mandarin shopping arcade.
Obsessive shopaholic I am
Marc Jacobs, Zac Posen, Alice + Olivia in my closet I have
Brand new and pre-owned items abound
Come visit my Flickr photostream to see the bounty!
Kelly, you can also try Zann & Denn for dresses. I did my ROM dress with them. Suzanne is really nice.
I’ve also bought from Bordello Princess before and was happy with what I got. It was a gorgeous 70s floral dress, which I’ve since worn to death.
Tried looking for my own vintage stuff while I was abroad, but everything out there’s way too expensive for what I could find. And I still had to have them mended, altered and dry-cleaned. So honestly, I’d rather pay a bit more on a website like this one, to get everything done for me and shipped for free.
For those who love online shopping , please check out www.simplight.net, an Indonesian online shop own by a friend of mine. Great selection of clothes and accessories which are often featured in major women magazine. Great price too.
