From trinkets to travel togs, the pop up shop Things We Love has long been on our list of shopping faves. With a stylish, curated collection of fashion, homewares, jewellery and more, it’s a streamlined must-shop for busy Singapore mamas. And now they’ll be launching their first-ever Kids Edition Pop Up next week (26-28 May) at the new family hotspot, Tanderra Club at Dempsey!
TWL has sourced a wide range of kids’ clothing, swimwear, toys and accessories for savvy mums and bubs (not to worry, mama: they’ll still have their usual trove of fabulous frocks and baubles for you as well!). We polled our own Sassy Mama staff to find out exactly which items they’ll be tracking down next week:
“With two kids under six who love swimming I always find myself carrying too many things in too many bags. The “Oversize Tote” from Aussie brand Project Ten is not only stylish, it’s also super lightweight and big enough for all our towels and beach toys and all the necessary (and unnecessary!) things we mums carry around! I’m also a huge fan of Mrs Darcy’s candles and pillows!”
-Managing Director Emilie
“I’m excited that the fab ladies behind Things we Love are bringing super-cool Aussie label Foundling to us mamas in Singapore. This easy-living brand is perfect for the laid-back lifestyle in the Little Red Dot and their range of breezy kaftans and Eastern-inspired loungewear work for our tropical (well, sweaty!) climate. Also worth keeping your beady eye out for is accessories label Tiff — their edgy clutches and artisanal-feeling jewellery will really funk up your look.”
-Founder and Creative Director Hester
“Maggie just started walking so suddenly this shoe-loving mama has discovered a whole new category of super-cute baby clothes to covet. I’ve got my eye on these adorable Lurex Fuschia Canvas Mary Janes from Walnut Melbourne; I love the slight hint of sparkle and the convenient Velcro closure. And is there anything more awww-worthy than child-size gumboots like their Gator range?”
–Sassy Mama Singapore Editor Kate
“We just came back from a visit to Grandma and Grandpa’s place by the ocean so my baby has a newfound obsession with the beach, along with any sports ball. My husband is a big fan of the Wahu surfing brand from Down Under. I know my little boy will love their beach-friendly rugby ball, along with the “Babes in the Shade” rashguard and board shorts for some UPF 50+ protection. All perfect accessories for a big beach day on Sentosa.”
-Partnerships Director Kristin
Besides Things We Love, two of our favourite local kids’ companies, Madie Moo and Just My Type, plus furniture emporium FairPrice Antique will also be on hand to make a stop extra worth your while.
Très chic party planners Little Pixie Box will have a wide range of kids’ activities for the morning sessions, while The Flower Girl will be running a kids’ flower workshop on Wednesday afternoon so the kiddos will be well and truly occupied while you get your shop on! Each session costs $40 per child and needs to be booked in advance, so take note, mamas!
What’s more, one lucky mama can even win a 3-month membership at Tanderra! Visit Things We Love’s Facebook page for more details and to enter!
