Gift Guide Part 3

With the train distruptions recently, we’re glad to say that the shop is extremely accesssible by bus and car =) Well, it comes with being along¬†one of the¬†main expressways in Singapore, the Ayer Rajah Expressway (AYE), which leads all the way to the east of Singapore with hardly a traffic light in sight.

So if you’re giving the downtown areas a miss, shop vintage at our small but bustling (and bursting) store!

As we hurtle towards Christmas (yes it’s going to be that fast), consider these Christmas gift ideas.


A set of six amber glasses, new in the box!

Pretty amber glasses

A really old-school film camera which will actually work! Comes new in the box as well.

For those trendy folks, geek-chic spectacle frames made of good-quality acetate. As these are vintage pre-loved pieces, we took out the original lenses so everyone can wear them =)

Presidential style =)

I think my uncle wore these in the 70s.

Made in West Germany

Spice up your kitchen!

Perk up your kitchen with these retrolicious (and functional) items.

Colourful spice jars!

The gold lettering on the base reads 'spice'.

The glasses in these black and white cups are removable  Рthe design comes straight from the op art (optical art) trend of the 60s. We have 2 black and 2 white available (sold as a set of 4).

Just like a Panton print!

This cute little number has beads at the base for feet. The perfect size for a scoop of ice-cream ūüėõ Comes in original box, triangle brand. Limited pieces available.

Cup with legs!

Mint in box

We love colour and simply fell in love with this family of saucers – a big ‘mother’ bowl containing six smaller saucers, each a different glorious colour! (plus one green spoon). It might look like melamine but it’s not. The material feels more like bakelite which means it’s an early plastic, and pretty darn old! This was found mint in the package and has not been used.

Have a Drink!

Here at By My Old School, we like our drinking glasses mismatched. And why buy new ones when you’ve got vintage designs packed with personality?

They work perfectly well too! More designs in store.



Pair these retro glasses with one of these old-time hot-water flasks and food containers for a great-looking nostalgic corner.
