A friend of mine will be visiting Singapore later this month and is looking for shopping tips. Generally speaking, what kinds of things should she look out for that will be cheaper, better quality, or uniquely available in Singapore? (She lives in London, so "Cheaper and/or better than in London" is her benchmark) And more specifically, are there any particular shops you'd recommend?
I'm looking for shops in either Miami Beach or New York City where I could find interesting handmade jewelry. (A slightly random combination of cities, I know--it's just that I'll be in both places on an upcoming trip.) I'm looking for jewelry that is well made but not ultra expensive--which, in my mind, would probably put the price range somewhere between $20 and $100. Any tips for shops in either location?
Where would a good place in London be to shop for a chair for my computer desk? [More inside] [more inside]
