Whether you're shopping for birthday gifts, Christmas gifts, or for yourself, a good place to pick up some unique items is at Curbside Crafters. This curated lifestyle marketplace in Kampong Glam occupies two levels of a shophouse on North Bridge Road. In this bright and airy space, you'll find booths set up by local creatives and F&B businesses selling handcrafted wares alongside takeaway foods.
Launch weekend on December 4 and 5 saw brands like Paper Palette Studio, noontide & night, Ozel, Manja Mao, The Designing Pat and d.atlas studio selling pretty apparel, beaded maskchains and necklaces, batik wear, whimsical cat-themed crafted items, resin jewellery, adorable stickers, notebooks and much more. To accompany the shopping, F&B brands like Bootleg Brew & Bakes and Chai Queen SG were also onsite serving up delicious cuppas and baked goods.
Curbside Crafters was designed as a flexible space for aspiring creatives and entrepreneurs to share their works more widely, so you can expect to see a good mix of longstanding booths and new pop-ups. There's also a studio in the shophouse attic meant for creative workshops – so that's something else to look forward to.
