    This is the perfect shop to buy gifts for family and friends, as it has everything! The lady in the shop was so warm and welcoming without being in any way pushy. We loved walking through this aladdin's cave, seeing all the different objects - and I'm someone who doesn't normally enjoy shopping! We would definitely recommend this gem of a shop as must see.

    Great shop full of everything from kitsch to genuine antiques. Goh and his family are friendly and informative, relaxed and helpful. I enjoyed looking at hundreds of gorgeous things and will go back again to see more. Loved it, a wonderful shop one of the best in Singapore for antiques.

    Very nice shop, clearly the prints and maps are of high quality with museum mounting. I recommend this shop for anyone who is visiting the Tanglin Shopping Center.

    Loved our recent visit to A Vintage Tale- some great pieces- left with the most sumptuous silk dress originally from the US, a mustard silk dress and a miu miu with a striking kaleidoscope design. Will definitely return on next trip to Singapore.

    It was enjoyable to shop and to meet Nick from Singapore Trading Post who demonstrate passion in sharing local culture, tradition and history of Singapore through their merchandise goods, furnitures, ornaments to jewelries.
    This store is a gem for discerning lifestyle seekers who are looking for a stylish yet unique gifts and premiums of Singapore origins.

    Always have the most amazing experience at the store. Shawn never fails to patiently explain and assure me in whatever problems I have with my clock, while David teaches and educates me about the clocks and their mechanisms.

    They are experts in what they do and I truly believe they are the best in Singapore be it purchasing a unique piece of history for your home or restoring your antique clock to its full glory.

    Charity thrift shop that is well lighted, clean and air-conditioned. Items start from $1, good selection of clothings (women, men and kids), knickknacks and well stocked kitchen and homewares. They carry branded items, vintage and cute stuff too. Always a treasure hunt.

    I have sent my boys to the shop when they needed to pick jackets for their grad nights. 100% success rate! Ask the volunteers on duty and they will help you pick items that suit you too.

    They have their IG and FB page that highlight latest interesting items but always best to visit in person. I have picked out cute stuff that are not showcased on their socials. My regular haunt for sure.

    Good to know that shop is mostly helmed by volunteers and proceeds goes towards helping the disadvantaged.

    At the recommendation of a friend based in Singapore, we took a trip to Journey East (since we were also headed to the historic, now gentrified, district of Tiong Bahru). The people behind this store take regular trips throughout Java to source for vintage teak wood pieces that date between 1910 and 1960. Walking through this store was like taking a trip down memory lane in Asia!

    The Past Perfect Collection is a gem of an antique store in Singapore's Tan Boon Liat Building. Their wide range of beautifully restored colonial furniture is a feast for the eyes. We also like their fine selection of stylish accessories, including Good Earth tableware and decorative silver items that are great to own or buy as gifts. The entire collection is beautifully displayed in a well-designed and cosy showroom. The friendly owners, Pieter and Marie van Houten, are knowledgeable and dedicated antique lovers. They can tell you a lot about the origin of the piece or pieces you're interested in. They go to great length to meet your needs, and stand ready to ship your item(s) to wherever in the world you may need them.

    Went with a friend from Singapore, not knowing what to expect. This is a treasure trove for antique enthusiasts. Spent 4 hours going through this place and saw some amazing stuff. Will visit again, lot to see.
