i heard one of the saddest news in hong kong retail in the last few days. the iconic shanghai tang store on pedder street will be replaced by abercrombie & fitch.
as we know that consumer power is slowly declining in america and rising with such prowess in asia, it is no wonder that in the last few months; we have seen a lot american retailers hitting the shores of hong kong such as the impending opening of gap and american eagles.
i just cannot believe that after years of being there, we will be losing such an iconic store( at such a prime piece of retail real estate) – which is unique to hong kong’s identity. i have never bought much from shanghai tang personally but whenever i have to bring tourists or clients, that would be one of the places i’d bring them. it’s also the place to go when you have to buy someone a corporate gift for someone to remember hong kong by. i’ll definitely miss it sorely!!
talking about american eagles – i was just at the shop last weekend. seriously, i don’t understand what the fuss is about. while there are a lot of good basic wear, the price and quality tell two different stories. it is what it is, the quality is rather crap!
i could spend hours at city super’s log on shop. they have the cutest and most frivolous stationeries, it makes me want to be a kid again. when i was young, i had a stack of stickers and a jar of erasers. it was my most prized collection. i won’t let anyone touch it or see it ( see i liked collecting things ever since i was young)
since i can’t go back in time and be a kid again, i can however shop at log on because they have such great gift ideas for literally anyone of any age. the next time you need to give someone a special present, do check log on out. they have a brand new shop on the 2nd floor of isquare, tst.
these shoes aren’t made for walking – it is a converse pencil case. it comes in four different colors – blue, pink, red and black. when i was 15, i bought my first pair of converse, so this is a little nostalgic for me.
you should check out the eraser section – i almost died of happiness. they had like little erasers of food stuff, fruits, carbonated can drinks. japanese people are just so insane when it comes to making cute stuff.
recently i received a very cute gift from my friend. they are called stuck on you . stuck on you stickers are personalized labels that goes on everything and anything. i wished i had them when i was a kid. there was a point in time, i like putting my name on everything including the walls in our old house. check out their website. the basic vinyl name labels are HK$ 169 for a set of 50. they are waterproof, microwave free, dishwasher safe and uv resistant.
besides name labels, you can also do funky bag tags and dog tags. i need a funky bag tag because sometimes at the baggage claim conveyor belt, i have to flip a few black bags to make sure, i don’t take the wrong one! sophie needs a tag too. i can’t wait for my godson jake to go to school – i want to give him a personalized set of stickers, water bottle…:) you can get them delivered in 2-3 weeks time!!
