What’s in store

It looks like a cafe from the out­side, with ta­bles and chairs lin­ing the side­walk, and flow­ers used as decor, which add a whim­si­cal and mag­i­cal touch to the space’s in­ti­mate vibe – but that’s not all Shop Won­der­land is. Be­sides en­joy­ing baked good­ies from cafes such as Car­pen­ter and Cook and Patis­serie G on the first floor, you can also shop for home ac­ces­sories on the sec­ond floor. Wares stocked by the 1,500sqf shop in­clude Vo­luspa’s French Bour­bon Vanille Corta can­dle, vin­tage lamps and a Louise Wilkin­son tea cup set (sourced by Bertha & Biggs). The store also sup­ports lo­cal ar­ti­sans, pro­vid­ing them a plat­form to show­case and sell their prod­ucts. These in­clude Davy Young’s Leaves with Mem­o­ries se­ries of plates and batik cat toys by The Soft Touch.

The team at Shop Won­der­land con­ducts flo­ral-craft classes, too (to sign up, just drop by the store or send an e-mail to en­[email protected] won­der­ The flo­ral and decor arm, The New Ro­man­tics, caters to wed­dings, lux­ury brand events, cor­po­rate din­ners, store vis­ual dis­plays, and bou­quets for oc­ca­sions. The store brings in some­thing new and changes its decor ev­ery month, so there’s al­ways some­thing to look for­ward to.

Who’s be­hind it

Founder Melissa Wang es­tab­lished Won­der­land for De­tailed Plan­ners (WFDP) in 2010, hir­ing out Tif­fany chairs for events and wed­dings. In 2012, she es­tab­lished Shop Won­der­land, sell­ing soft fur­nish­ings. The store’s over­all con­cept and de­sign has been greatly in­flu­enced by her trav­els around the world, in­clud­ing her time spent man­ag­ing the Bri­tish brand Jo Malone. Shop Won­der­land has re­lo­cated to 37 Haji Lane (from 53 Haji Lane) for more space, fa­cil­i­tat­ing the in­tro­duc­tion of its cafe con­cept.
