Boutique Buys

Saturday, January 16, 2016

Hong Kong is filled with independent boutiques and it's great to shop locally. Unfortunately, the rent in Hong Kong is extremely high, if a business can stay open for over a year it's considered a success here. This makes it more difficult for small business owners, but luckily Hong Kong has a great aray of boutiques and social media also makes it easier for independent owners to promote their items through facebook or Instagram.

I love browsing through the independent sellers and seeing what they have to offer. Boutiques gives you a different choice and sometimes you find something incredibly unique. I picked up these items a few weeks ago at a few places, the cat ring was from a plaza in Kwai Chung that is full of independent sellers. The inspirational postcard is hand written and drawn lovingly by a typography seller, with one of the best quotes. As if I need anymore necklaces? I couldn't help myself from buying this space rock, yet the picture doesn't do this necklace justice as it has subtle colours that show whenever the light hits it.

A few of my favourite independent shopping centres:
Trendy Zone - 潮流特區. Address: 580A Nathan Road, Mong Kok
Island Beverly Store-金百利廣場, Address: 1 Great George Street, Causeway Bay
Kwai Chung Plaza- 葵涌廣場, Address: 7-11 Kwai Foo Road, Kwai Chung, Kwai Fong
D2 Marketplace weekends, Address: 9 Cheung Yee Street, Lai Chi Kok
