I'm not in to beads. But they use to be a place in Tanglin(Court), not the mall, but the Tudor style shops upstairs. Another was down in the Concourse, but understand that its under construction so it may not be there any more. Good luck!

Where I find my beads

Post by ubinsophie » Sat, 06 Dec 2008 12:45 am

Hi bluecharm,

I usually go to People's Park Centre in chinatown to get my beading supplies. There are shops like Mix N' Match, SinoBeads and Lai Guan to name a few. The place is full of beading supply shops. You can get there by exiting Chinatown MRT exit 'D'.

Opposite People's Park Centre there is Chinatown point, which also has a few shops.

There is a shop along South Bridge road called 'Ancient Craft' that is quite interesting.

There are 3 shops along Arab street that are worth looking at too. They are Kin Lee & Co, Digvijay Sequins and another shop that I like at unit 100 but can't remember the name of. I can go home and check it out for you if you want. (I'm at my mom's place now... :))

Sunshine plaza along Middle road and Bencoolen street (91 Bencoolen Street (S) 189652) has Beadhub, The Bead workshop and Egems. Though pricey, I like the findings at Beadhub because they are of a better quality. Egems has a wide range of gemstones.

I hope that this information is useful! If you need more information, just let me know. :P
