Latest Love - All Things Enamel






I'm starting to have a serious love affair with enamel utensils.. The past few weeks have seen us hunting for vintage kitchenware.  Unsurprisingly, it hasn't been easy finding vintage ware in Singapore.  The good news is that we have lots of enamel! And yes.. we've been raiding our little neighbourhood shops for these pretty finds.

  3. Hi Michelle, thanks!
    I usually get my enamel plates and bowls from those HDB town centre shops that sell all the daily household items, but they just come in colours of green and yellow. The plain white plates are a rare find at one of the shops at Serangoon Central, so I bought them immediately. The white enamel jug and pail are from ikea, they can be found at the gardening section.

    If you do get to travel to Malaysia, I just discovered this shop during my recent trip to Penang!
    The shop's called "Material", it's a little like Muji, but smaller and they sell items that are a have a more rustic design... They have quite a number of enamel ware. I bought the coffee pot (in my recent butter cookies post) from there as well as 2 white enamel measuring cups... very exciting! :P

    1. Hello Nayoung, I am so sorry for the late reply. Haven't been keeping up-to-date with my blog *guilty*
      There are 2 shops that I go to. One is rather near the fruit/vegetable store. And another one is upstairs. It's quite hard for me to describe it to you. Next time that I'm there, I'll take note of the block numbers!
