I was very pleased to find this - I would call an art shop in Chinatown in Singapore. The owner has a great taste and handpicks the items he/she sells there. I have bought quite a few things and am very happy to have them in my house as a memory.

Thought this would be like the other souvenir shops but I was proven wrong as the staff patiently introduced the various curated handmade wares. There were even little note cards and videos explaining how different items are made, such as the lacquer ware that's hand-painted by the proprietress herself. Great place to find a unique memento.

This souvenir shop seemed so different as I walked through the shop. The owner, Zhen (pictured below) is very friendly and takes great pride in explaining that every piece here is painted by local artists. She added, "her items stand out as it has good design" . Indeed I've just returned from Koh Samui where every souvenir shops sell similar bowls made from coconut shell but mass-produced by machines. Picking up one of these bowls on display, I could tell it's one of a kind, indeed handpainted by her. After a brief chat, Zhen remarked she loved beautiful things. Certainly this comes through in the many items on display in her unique shop. They are indeed beautiful objects on display and make great souvenirs from Singapore.
I'm glad to have found this place, and would be glad to show off this place to my visiting friends from abroad.

Shop has a good range of high quality souvenirs at reasonable prices. The lady who worked there was helpful, without being pushy. She remembered that I'd already been there looking and came back to buy ( when I realised nearly all the other shops were inferior and sold exactly the same things). Bought lacquered tray, lacquered coconut bowl, painted wooden eggs. And they take cards.

If you can t get easily a discount go further down temple street and turn right , same products and different choices. Once you make your choice just buy, you won t get more discount than that from what we tried on both shops.

We have bought many things here in the past and just last weekend we bought some more. We also always take our friends here when they come and visit us. Prices are fixed and the materials are of very high quality as you can see. Many of the items are hand-painted and they have some really nice things on offer. If you go there a couple of times a year, you'll notice that parts of the items on display change from time to time. I would surely recommend this to everyone. And it's conveniently located in Chinatown.

Just stopped in here while visiting Chinatown. Ladies who worked there were very helpful but not pushy helping me pick out something. They stated many of the items were hand painted. Most items appear to be priced between 10 and 200USD. Small shop so they probably don't have something for everyone but worth a look if you are looking for something beyond the street vendor souvenirs. For both myself and the French citizens who were making a purchase before me they took the time to pack items in bubble wrap to prevent damage in transit.
