See you!! 🙂
I’ve only heard of this item and I’ve been told you can’t find it Singapore anymore, although it was common in the past. So we were thrilled to see it in a country not far from us! What do you think this is for? Answer at the end of the post 🙂
Here are the items just in:
Cabbage chopstick holder
Huge pine cones
Now here’s the answer 🙂
These clay bowls with a moat were used to keep ants away from food stored in the kitchen cupboard. This cupboard was the “refrigerator” in those days. The moat of course, would be filled with water. Clever huh?
And yes we have a set of four for sale!
Did you get it right?
Here’s a cool way to measure out spirits for your parties (to make your alcohol last longer, of course, haha) Get these vintage brass measuring pegs and be the coolest bartender (or is it mixologist?) around! One gill = quarter of a pint.
Sneak your own alcohol in with these brand new stainless steel hip flasks. There’s even one on a key chain!
We know you love our French vintage postcards – turn them into greeting cards with our card frames! Your recipient can display the cards AND change the display whenever they want! Just take the postcard out of the slot – clever eh? 🙂
We have a limited number of vintage French Christmas-themed cards and card frames – get them now!
When I was in primary school, I had to choose one of two instruments to learn – the recorder or the pianica. Well, I’m glad (and my parents too I bet) that it wasn’t the cello or the tuba. Because I’m hopeless at any musical instrument! If you too, have fond memories of playing these two curriculum-mandated instruments (from Yamaha too!), take a walk down memory lane and check them out in the shop now.
We also have harmonicas, but no we weren’t required to learn these 🙂
From industrial-use glass bottles to vintage flour sacks, there is something for everyone!
How about turning these old glass bottles into lamp bases?
Cosmetic case with brass details
Kids colouring mat
Swank vintage lighter (new in box)
Vintage amber coffee cups (set of six)
Vintage National toaster with toy toaster
Real ship porthole
Use this vintage flour sack to make cushions!
Reproduction HMV signboard
We felt this unique item deserves a post of its own. After all, how often do you come across a bigger than life-sized plaster head of Gollum from Lord of the Rings and the soon to be screened The Hobbit?
The craftsmanship on this is truly awesome – check the bulging eyes, sinister grin, bad teeth and stringy hair!
For sale but not displayed in the shop (we don’t want to scare the kids!)
There’s a new act in town and they’re performing at By My Old School.
Introducing the Amazing Pegzini Family! They’re touted as the five most daring pegs ever seen. Gravity defying and laundry drying!
We got these on our trip and thought they were simply awesome! (not for sale, display only)
