Ever you ever visited one of really old kopitiams in Singapore, just to ‘soak up the atmosphere’?
There aren’t many left here but you can certainly try to ‘re-create’ that old nostalgic feeling at home with a koptiam table, chairs and accessories.
Just the cups alone are enough to create that wave of nostalgia. Check out our little kopitiam corner with the iconic cups and saucers adorned with green English-style blossoms. The saucer is (deliberately?) deep for the purpose of holding a quivering softly poached egg. More uncommon and harder to find are the white cups, rimmed with gold and with that unmistakeable gold symbol. I admit I don’t know what the gold emblem stands for. Can anyone tell me? What I do know is that I know it instantly as a kopitiam cup.
We have limited quantity of these 2 cup designs and are selling them as sets (cup+saucer+little spoon). All sets are new and never been used (the gold is still bright on the white cup).
The Big Picture
The blue Esso “LPG”canister is actually a vintage soya sauce container. It was a premium from the company.
The toaster is also ‘new’ as in new arrival =)
The top panel becomes a toast rack when taken out!
The toaster is standing on a vintage stool which has been restored with a new cane seat. Used in the kopitiam too perhaps? We have a few of these.

New designs of patterned glasses
Glasses with printed patterns
This would have been useful in a kopitiam. Vintage-style standing ashtray – flip the tray open to rest your ciggie and flip it closed to throw away the ash. Ingenious design! Also available in fuchsia.
