Vintage Clothes

Post by wannamove » Tue, 15 Nov 2011 4:23 am

It is going to be a "retro" holiday party at work this year. I need to find something in Singapore as my shipment will not get here in time for the party.

Google gets me a list of vintage clothing shops in Singapore but I was wondering if someone has actually shopped for these and has any recommendations for the same.

I don't think he still has his rawhide loincloth. Although, he may still have his old clothes from the Mayflower days. His Civil War clothes may be riddled with bullet holes, though.

Try her website? She is an expat in Singapore herself, and she is spending her free time making these vintage clothes.

I wonder if she is legally doing this in Singapore? Considering she gives her local address but lists her prices in £'s?

Probably wants to take advantage of the exchanges rates?!
