Hock Siong & Co

Singapore favorite karung guni store – Hock Siong & Co.

A continuation of our shopping around for retro/vintage/industrial furniture, this time round I want to recommend one of the best place to buy cheaper but yet good quality stuff.

According to its webpage, Hock Siong has changed from being a karung guni store to dealing with second hand furniture, operating equipment and antiquities from local hotels and residential households.

Situated within the industrial area behind Tai Seng MRT. the address is 153 Kampong Ampat, #01-03 Junjie Industrial Building, S(368326).

The place is separated into 3 sections. I will call it …
(1) General Section
(2) Kitchen Section
(3) Furniture Section

General section is basically where you can find anything and everything.

We exercised much self-control and just bought one item. But we will surely be back for more when we have shifted.

Ceramic pot for only $12.
