The first shop I'll be featuring is .woodwould.. (that's their actual shop name, complete with the dots and all). Nested in Mandarin Gallery, it's not exactly out of the way as it's along the Orchard Road, but Mandarin Gallery is full of individual boutiques and usually rather empty (: Which is a good thing! Who would want to jostle among throngs of people to shop?

|The doors to fantasyland!|
Even the shop front of woodwould sets it apart from its neighbours. There's two little wood swing doors at the entrance, and you'd see a vintage looking shiny red bicycle at the front! The lighting is especially cool, it's made up of a lightbulb in a white birdcage, with straw cascading down the cage.

|Big postcard selection - full of quirky cards that are funny and original. |
Hallmark can burn in hell!
Topmost shelf are all vintage bedtime storybooks.
(which reminds me - I've yet to post out my Christmas cards! Damn I'm going to be late ): )
woodwould has 2 outlets:
- #03-03 The Cathay, 2 Handy Road
- #03-24 Mandarin Gallery
Prices range from a few dollars for a wood toy pencil or card, to around $16 and above for a notebook or a diary. Other products such as photo albums and intricately designed travel journals can go up to >$50.
Great for those people who have yet to complete their Christmas shopping!
