Sorry for the lack of updates here! We have been spending our time vintage hunting, weekends at estate sales, flea markets and thrifting to find stock for PicnicSunday Vintage. We’ve sent back to Singapore a fresh batch of vintage clothing, and in this batch, there’s a ton of vintage dresses, tops, blouses, skirts and even a couple of jumpsuits! We hope you love them as much as we do!
We add a new piece to the shop every couple of days, so to be alerted first on when it hits the shop, like us on facebook and follow us on instagram! Feel free to email email@example.com with any questions as well.
Just a few of our latest vintage dresses added to PicnicSunday Vintage:
Just had to share my favourite pieces from our latest new arrivals, I love dresses with unique and one of a kind prints, and that’s what I look for when I source vintage pieces for the shop! Head on over to www.picnicsunday.com now to take a look!
Another gem I uncovered while cleaning up were my 2 primary school sticker books! We used to trade stickers, save up for them, get jealous of girls who had the best and most stickers. Every sticker was a commodity, even free ones with cereal:
And the shiny, furry ones, where the SandyLion brand was the most coveted:
I wasn’t obsessed with trolls at all:
And to end it all off, cute kitty cats in the softest setting:
I had to do a quick pack up of my room in Singapore before flying back to Pittsburgh, and I managed to dig up some of my childhood collections and I just had to share them!
Did you own any of these when you were a kid? These are collections I’ll probably never bear to get rid of. What did you collect when you were a kid?

My sister’s good friend Shenn recently opened a new cafe and vintage furniture shop in Bukit Timah, called Carpenter and Cook. So my sister brought us there for a visit and it was a really really nice place! It was packed that weekend, as it was their 2nd week open and they had quite a bit of press about them so far.
Carpenter and Cook is not just a cafe, they also sell vintage furniture and do party planning! The place is decorated with vintage furniture that’s for sale, and the place is packed with lovely pieces and details all over:
We ordered a bunch of pastries from their display, and they were all very yummy! Dylan attacked the strawberry tart while we had the savoury Olive and Sundried Tomato Brioche:
The passionfruit tart was one of everyone’s favourite and we all rounded it off refreshing lemonades. Will definitely be heading back if we ever get the car!
After the mini meal, we decided to hope by Jiaqi’s Uncle’s shop Nylon Coffee Roasters to see it and have a cup of coffee. We’re not big coffee drinkers, but it tasted great, they have a great set up going on down in Everton Park, a really cosy place to have a coffee and have a chat with the owners.
It was a great day visiting 2 lovely new places to chill out and have a drink or some yummy pastries. Hope we can head back soon!

PicnicSunday has had some milestones lately, our 1st birthday, a wedding and a big move to USA (hopefully this means more great vintage) coming on up! We apologise for the absence and lack of updates but we’re back in full force now. And the best way to celebrate everything and kick start our revival with a great clearout sale! We gotta make way for more fab vintage pieces to put into the shop, so head on down to the shop for almost everything, heavily discounted!

It sounds quite obsessive that I’ve been to Group Therapy 3 times in the last month! An old friend brought me there, and I started suggesting this quaint cafe everytime I met different groups of people, and trying as much of the menu I can. The nice thing about this place is that it has a menu with its staples (poached eggs, pies, 4-layer carrot cake etc) but has some changes every week. I haven’t managed to snap a photo of everything my friends and I have tried there, but here is a quick snapshot of some of it:
One of their most mentioned dishes online is their Poached Eggs (with thick toast, smoked salmon, gruyere, hollandaise). It’s simply delish! One of the best hollandaise I’ve tried, and not to mention the thick toast which was soft and fluffy. All the components blended well together to form yummy bites, and we couldn’t stop eating. Make sure to break the yolks early if you want it runny. The only drawback was it was a little heavy and rich with the sauce, but can be taken back a bit by putting some of it to the side.
We also had the Salmon sandwich, it was alright, sufficient and good enough, but I loved the couscous side salad, and came back subsequent times wanting more of the side salad, as weird as that sounds!
To end off one of our lunches, we had their much talked about Belgian Waffle with all the fixings. Very yummy, and very generous with the fruit and ice cream, prepare to share as its too much to eat after a meal there.
I’ve tried a bunch of other stuff here too, and I have no complaints about any of them. I highly recommend Group Therapy, its a great place to hang out and spend hours without feeling the pressure to get moving, and great food and drinks (too bad I’m not a big coffee drinker so I can’t help much there). Just do note that it’s only open for dinner on Friday and Saturday, so do make a note to drop by for brunch or lunch if you are on leave!
