A shopper's guide to Dempsey Hill

When you first think of places to go furniture-hunting, Dempsey Hill might not necessarily come to mind, but the quaint clusters are a treasure trove of vintage and modern furniture and homeware for you to peruse. Despite the insides of the colonial buildings being individually transformed to fit the stores’ showroom and restaurant themes, the original architecture still remains, giving Dempsey Hill its old-world charm. Here’s a list of a few must-visit homeware and restaurants in the Dempsey Hill compound.
