Crate and Barrel’s pop-up
All through February
Home decor and furniture brand Crate and Barrel has launched a new pop-up space at Peranakan Place (it’s located right beside the Orchard Gateway @ Emerald outlet). You’ll find all the finishing touches to your home bar right here. Think bar carts, bar tools and supplies and cool accessories to woo guests at your next cocktail party. There’s also a local section where you can purchase locally-inspired gift ideas and souvenirs and card games. But here’s what caught our eye: hop over to the pop-up on Fridays and snag home accessories for just – wait for it – $2. Yes, you heard that right. We also hear that exclusive collabs and workshops will be conducted at the space.
