Rev up the credit cards, mama! Singapore’s longest-running (and one of Sassy Mama’s favourite) fairs is back for Boutiques: The Week-End Edition on 25 and 26 April. Popping up at the F1 Pit Building, this bi-annual shopping extravaganza features over 120 of the Lion City’s best independent brands.
We’re positively chomping at the bit for this unmissable event, and being the planners that we are, we’ve done some of the legwork for you and selected our Top 10 stalls you should make a beeline for. With the Summer hols right around the corner, we’ve picked the perfect pieces to keep you, the kiddies and your home looking cool in the sweltering heat!

Feroza Designs’ Anya Dohar
We don’t need to remind you, mama, that Singapore is hot, hot, hot! As our AC bills ever mount, it can be difficult finding the right kind of bedding that is both comfy and light-weight. Enter Feroza Designs’ dohars. These Indian summer blankets are made up of three layers of soft cotton muslin, making them soft, snuggly and (importantly) breathable. All designs are block-printed by hand, and we’re particularly obsessed with this girly pink Anya print, perfect for slumbering little princesses.

Plus, did we mention each towel has an inside pocket for phones or keys and Bo-Ya Creation provide a personalised embroidery service, so there’s no chance of anyone claiming your towel as their own!
