Vintage in Singapore: Baan Vintage

My favourite corner of the Baan Vintage store

This is probably the first vintage store that I visited since my return to Singapore. Β 

Bits and bobs everywhere! πŸ™‚
I was more interested in the vintage case than the Ken dolls

The store is filled with vintage knick-knacks and bric-a-brac that provide the illusion of being transported back in time.Β I like shops like this – shops with items that are presented in an organised chaos which requires patience and an eye for detail. It’s a challenge, really. Moreover, I like getting lost in the beauty of vintage.Β 

However, many of the garments and accessories I saw that day were actually modern pieces. Some of them were slightly less mainstream and some of them were rather kitsch. However, those were not the things I was looking for. There were a few racks of true vintage dresses, but they were also not the kind that I was looking for and they were not in the price range that I was willing to pay.Β 


Some of the clothing items available in the shop

Yes, I already own a couple of Japanese vintage dresses and I am not planning on getting more because the designs that I have seen so far are more or less similar. More importantly, I only paid 10AUD for those dresses I bought in Sydney. And now you want me to pay at least S$100!?

But that’s just me. Hey, I earn peanuts. If you have the means, I’d say go for it!Β 

Lots of vintage trinkets

Regardless, this store is worth a visit. But go for the trinkets, not for the dresses.Β
