Customer Testimonial

As a vintage addict I was always missing the experience of finding true gems here in Singapore. Until A Vintage Tale opened the doors. What a feast! I just can’t enter this shop without falling in love with one or more pieces. There are always great finds, Azzurra is a true vintage queen and very honest she will tell you if a dress is maybe not the perfect one for you, she will make you feel confident in a dress that you maybe thought was not meant for you. I love that!

My favorite shop in Singapore and beyond! And also a perfect place to have an aperitivo with your girlfriends. I even don’t know any vintage shop in Europe where you can have such a fun shopping experience.

A holiday away from the hustle and bustle of Singapore. Located in a quaint and charismatic neighbourhood in Joo Chiat. Eclectic Room exudes soul, creativity, one way or another as strange as it sounds I feel like I am transported in another world.
A space that I feel inspired, safe and I can be me.
I find the most niche home decor, accessories and apparel bringing a piece of Eclectic Room with me.
