Three Handsome Briefcases

Well, if these vintage briefcases were men, there’s only one word to describe them – handsome. Sturdy and well put together, you just know you’ll be able to depend on them for a long time (not to mention that rough-around-the-edges charm we all love!) 🙂

Bags, bags, bags!

We’ve made full use of our new space and filled it with bags you love. Recently, we noticed our cosmetic/train cases have been used creatively as ang pow (red packet) holders at weddings. The red ones are the perfect auspicious colour for that! And I can just imagine red Double Happiness stickers on the white and green ones 🙂

Simply love old leather bags, especially this one, which looks like something a Victorian-era doctor might carry.

Dapper bags

We love buying vintage bags whenever we go travelling – not dainty women handbags, but well-made good quality leather pieces that will probably last another 50 years.

All for your benefit – at prices which make them great buys for their quality 🙂

Vintage cameras and cases

We bought these because we admired their design and craftsmanship, plus its place in history. We don’t really know alot about photography to be honest, so won’t you come on by and tell us more about them? The cameras come with a leather case.

This is what a portable foldable camera looked like in those days.

It was housed in a beautiful leather pouch like this

And unfolds into this! The Six-20 Kodak Junior.

We have just the leather cases too, which we think are really cool for modern-day accessories. Two designs available.

Swank vintage belt buckles (Great gift idea!)

 

Our latest addition to the swanky Swank family of accessories for men – the belt buckle. Made of solid brass and plated so that they will never rust (ever), these buckles are truly beautiful. They were designed for men but we reckon that women will love them too because of their slimmer widths.

The best thing is – you can personalise your own belt!

1. Choose the buckle (your own initial or name!) 2. Choose the colour and type of leather. 3. We’ll do the rest!

Your belt will be made of 100% genuine quality  leather and put together by local craftsmen. We have several options, including calf leather, for your selection.

Prices range from $50 to $90 (depending on quality of leather). Please give us 1-2 weeks to fulfil the order.

From now to the end of the year, we’re offering 10% off each belt, plus a special gift box so you can present it as a truly unique gift to a loved one.

Come down and take a look! These pictures will give you a better idea.

Your selection of buckles

Two types available – initials and names.

Alphabets available are A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, J, K, L ,M, N, T, R, P and W.

Names available are Bill, Bob, Charles, David, Dick, Ed, Frank, George, Harry, Henry, Jack, Jim, Joe, John, Paul, Ron, Tom and Walter.

Don’t forget our cufflinks! (gift wrapping available)
