Time Out says

Nana & Bird began as a pop-up shop in Georgina Koh’s home in Tiong Bahru, branched out to an online boutique and recently landed itself on permanent grounds. Koh, together with classmate and co-owner Tan Chiewling, came up with the shop name based on nicknames they were given in junior college:

‘Nana is short for Georgina – friends got tired with my long English name – and bird is because Chiewling is extremely chirpy and loud,’ Koh says. Stepping up to the door, Nana & Bird gives off that rare hole-in-the-wall charm. Iron bars still protect the windows and the original tiled floor is intact. Beaded necklaces, feather earrings, tote bags and polka-dot blouses are all on display. The girls encourage people to sit down for a cuppa to discuss fashion. Their philosophy? ‘Sell what we love.’

Jewellery $50-$350; tote bags $25-$50; women’s clothing $50-$300
