Singapore Shopping: Vintage Gems at Second Charm



Last week I finally made it out to visit Second Charm Vintage in person! I have been drooling over their site and meaning to visit for ages, and in the end it was even better than I imagined! Located in two large showrooms in a dusty industrial high rise building on Kallang Avenue, the shop is filled with lovely and well priced mid century mod pieces. They carry a equal blend of gorgeous vintage furniture, for which owner Sharifah scours Singapore and Malaysia, and new pieces crafted especially for Second Charm. The best part is it was pretty much impossible to tell the new from the old pieces. The vintage ones have been gently restored, cleaned up and refreshed without looking too shiny or new, and the new pieces are made to feel as if they have a natural age and patina. I love originals, but have to say  the option to customize size and finish makes the reproduction pieces a really fabulous option {like say a classic teak bed frame which will perfectly fit an American King mattress!} I was so inspired by their inventory, I certainly say it was worth the trip off the beaten path. 

Here are a few of my favorite finds: 












Can you guess which ones are vintage and which are repro? 

Happy Shopping!
