Located along Beach Road, it's a one-way street where there are quite a number of 'fad' types shops. It's Singapore's most eclectic shopping scene and it's narrow, but not narrow-minded. A few years ago, Haji Lane was a narrow strip of outdated shophouses. Now those same shophouses have been turned into small boutiques stocked with offbeat labels that you won’t find in Singapore malls.
I like the location, not crowded at all and you can really take your time to shop and snap all day long !
Saland Shop - This home-idea shop is being done up in monochrome: home furnishings in black and white with a minimalist feel. It's a good place to remake your apartment with help from someone less prone to colorful mistakes.
Put a gauzy drape over an old chair and slide your grotty shoes out of sight. PLUCK resembles an ideal homes magazine, with knockout furnishings and fashion gems you won't find anywhere else. Even better, there's an ice cream parlor on site. And in particular, i like the wordings craved on its glass panel: There are only 52 Saturday nights a year. Celebrate food & family everyday. So true !
The Blog Shop - This consignment shop rents space to fashion designers to showcase their most dazzling creations. A canary yellow mini-skirt? An unexpected houndstooth hankie? To paraphrase Forrest Gump, the Blog Shop is a lot like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.
Skyroom 花草树木: I like this shop very much !!! I bought several blouses from this unique shop. They have another outlet at The Central.
The owners of Rockstar: called simply Soon Lee, which means "Plain Sailing", this boutique shop maintains the homely charm that has created regulars out of passing patrons. If you are in the market for smart and casual women's wear that won't break the bank. They also have another outlet at Orchard Cineleisure.
Straits Records - You won’t find Lady Gaga in this tiny record shop. The owners decide who has soul and shelf space according to their own impeccabe tastes. That means no pop nonsense. What you’ll find is alternative, hip-hop, hardcore and reggae, alongside local and regional indie bands not easily found elsewhere. Oh yes, they also buy & sell books. You can find quite a good range of books in this shop.
A freelance Singapore-based travel photographer / photojournalist. I seek the extraordinary, but finds beauty in the everyday. Life is interesting, capture it.
