Interesting Singapore: Lurat St.
I was roaming around the Jalan Besar area and I noticed there was a lot of people walking around on this street. On my ways home from work, I see this place, but whenever I do, people have already packed up so I never actually witnessed the hustle-bustle. Today, I did! My curiosity won over me and I changed my route so I could check out what the fuss was about!
In one sentence: It's people selling their old stuff. So, it's one HUGE garage sale. Hahaha. This is a side of Singapore I haven't seen or witnessed. It was actually really cool because people were selling old cameras, vinyl/record players, vintage telephones, etc. There was even this old sewing machine that would look really cool as a prop in a tailor shop! People were selling VHS tapes (hahaha!), cassette tapes, old Ray Bans, etc. I didn't buy anything... but it was fun seeing all the stuff people were selling. A part of me wishes I bought one of those Ray Bans. haha.
If ever you need props for a vintage shop, this street is the place to go. There were so many cool things and if I had a GOOD reason to buy them, I would go ahead and spend money.
