Don't just shop for furniture at HotLotz – bid for it. The auction house carries a carefully curated array of contemporary, vintage and antique furniture, and collectibles – no mass-produced shelves in sight – sourced directly from Europe and Asia or consigned by local collectors. Every Saturday morning, these items get auctioned off piece by piece under auctioneer Christopher Lanigan-O’Keeffe’s gavel. You don’t have to be a bidder to attend; just head down to watch the (occasional) bidding wars over coffee and snacks from HotLotz Canteen, a connecting hawker centre stall-turned-café. Lots up for auction range from a novelty French-made ice bucket ($80) to a set of Indonesian-designed elm armchairs ($650) or a set of ten Japanese Kutani porcelain plates ($460).
