What I loved best is that it’s all handmade on the spot! I couldn’t resist getting a paper watch (or […]

Brought this back from Berlin for the husband and it seems to be a big hit with everyone. I got this at Promobo Design shop at Hackesche Höfe – a gift shop haven with emerging European designers. What I loved about their concept is they set aside shelves for local and emerging European designers to display […]

So many friends that have come through Macao to visit and surprisingly enjoyed my Junk store exploration adventure. Many asked where I got my vintage treasures in this post where I took my former flatmate and one of my closest friends based between LA and Shanghai (not short of vintage gems) on a mad shopping spree… […]

I first got acquainted with Vasconcelo’s work in Venice at the Venezia Biennale Arsenale in 2005 when I first moved to Italy.
