Overjoyed Store

We were in the Bugis area yesterday and we decided to drop by at Overjoyed Store to buy some art supplies. I bought my Rhodia notebooks here the last time and I needed to get a sketchbook since I want to take up urban sketching with watercolor.

Head to the basement for the entrance to the shop

This art supply shop is about 10-15 minutes away from Bugis MRT and it is located at Golden Wall Centre, which is after the La Salle campus, if you’re walking from Bugis.

It’s a bit out of the way to get there but it is definitely worth it since they do sell some specialty products that can only be found in their shop.

Rhodia notebooks are great for practicing calligraphy

You can get calligraphy supplies here. I like how you’re welcome to ask questions and how friendly the staff are.

Public Garden Flea Market

We joined the flea market organized by Public Garden at the National Museum last February and we had a great time. The museum has always been one of our favorite places in Singapore and we go there often so we were excited when we got the invitation to participate as a seller at that venue.  Just as expected, the light was great and the AC was cool. This made selling on a weekend very pleasant.

As usual, Public Garden has a great selection of sellers and they always have vendors who sell food and drinks which is a godsend to the participating vendors. We didn’t manage to eat before going to the museum and so we sampled all the baked goodies.

We bought several cupcakes from Plain Vanilla and I really loved the red velvet cupcakes.

There were handmade notebooks from Kariton by 1372 Designs made by Ruby and Seb.

Kikei Mono sold these adorable little monsters. Would you believe these are made from socks?

By My Old School was selling vintage items. These old Russian badges caught my eye.

By My Old School

This gorgeous hat by Mandy Pan really stood out from the rest of her display. If I had a great garden party to attend in the next few months I would have snagged this.

Hey Kumo had these cool travel guides. They had great graphics on the covers and I would have loved to browse their items more if I had the time to.

As usual there were several jewelry sellers with unique goods like Strangely Yours and By Invite Only.

I love the bags that Irene from Carrot Pepper makes. The cute fabric and great form makes for a great statement.

Fair Flare sold party goods. I haven’t seen stuff like these sold here in Singapore. I’m definitely bookmarking their shop for future party styling.

Made Little sold these cute kids clothes and bibs. If we had a little ones we would have grabbed a few of these outfits.

As you can clearly see there are lots of cool vendors selling great items. We bought several items throughout the day and hopefully when you visit fairs and bazaars you are inspired to support these artists and small businesses.
