“I’m really big on furniture and go to Journey East for amazing, one-of-a-kind art deco and mid century pieces. Also, I love the work by Cain Lim of The Affiniti—it’s very dynamic. He’s definitely one to watch!”
2. Anita Sam
Director at Journey East
“One of the more interesting stores within our vicinity is Strangelets—as their name suggests, you can find loads of fun and quirky accessories for the home there."

Partner at Strangelets
“I think Tong Mern Sern (51 Craig Rd., 6734-0761, tmsantiques.com) is great! You’ve got to love a guy whose motto is, “We buy junk and sell antiques, some fools buy some fools sell”. Also, you could probably spend an entire month in the shops discovering stuff you’ve never seen before.”
4. Keng Ah Wong
Owner of Tong Mern Sern Antiques Arts & Crafts
“Changi Junk Store (125 Joo Chiat Rd., 
9635-9425) is a treasure trove of art deco and retro pieces, many of which were lovingly restored by owner Haji Basman himself.”
