SHOP AT: Second Charm

"We want to make vintage more affordable,” says owner Sharifah, who has been in the business for nine years. She started in Kuala Lumpur (and still operates from there) selling small collectibles such as porcelain, silverware and brassware before branching out into vintage furniture.

The range of furniture they bring in is mostly 1950s to 1960s local vintage, but you might spot some contemporary, French or Art Deco finds, too. If you’re on the hunt for dining chairs, Second Charm has a good selection, such as bent wood ones from Czechoslovakia and metal chairs with formica seats. You can also bring in vintage furniture you've purchased elsewhere and they can help with restoration and upholstery work, too.

Their stock changes from week to week, check in regularly on what's in store!

Second Charm is at #05-165, Blk 21 Mapletree Industrial Building, Kallang Avenue, tel: 9628-9171/ 6294-2919. Open Tue - Sat 11am-6pm.
