We must admit it has taken us four years to finally get out of our comfort zone and branch out to the road less traveled. So with a comfortable pair of walking shoes, off we went to 68 Seng Poh Lane, in Tiong Bahru. Immediately as you drive/walk to the heart of Tiong Bahru (where the Tiong Bahru Market is located), you feel a sense of excitement as you’re exposed to the hustle and bustle of the shops and food stalls. For once, Singapore actually feels like Asia, unlike the usual cosmopolitan that you can find elsewhere around the world.
A friend of ours strongly urged us to check out ‘Flea and Trees’, owned by a Singaporean couple with an awesome taste! So when we found it, we couldn’t contain our excitement to start browsing and snapping up photos of the goodies inside. This place is amazing! We felt like kids in a candy store with all the gorgeous colors of the wide array of jewelry, dresses, glasses, vintage Louboutins, and the list goes on. We have arrived in a vintage heaven! (Mind you most of their jewelry are new, but you do find interesting original vintage knick knacks there). Just about everything you see in the store is for sale, except for the cute Garfield look-alike lazy cat that curled up comfortably on a beautiful blue chair (see picture below).
So enough typing, here are some of the ridiculously gorgeous things we saw in ‘Flea and Trees’. note: even if you’re not an accessories person, we guarantee you will walk out with something, as the prices are very reasonable!
