Trims sourcing and researching in Hong Kong: My little trip!


It's been a while i know! However, whilst i have been away i was blessed with the chance to visit the wonderful city of Hong Kong again. I decided to fit in a little bit of trims sourcing whilst i was out there, and visited the wonderful Sham Shui Po district again. I only managed to find a handful of the shops i visited last time, the area is so large it would have taken me a couple of days to do them all properly!

As you can see from the photo below, every shop is crammed full of beads, buttons, ribbons, lace and motifs, it is a crafters paradise!

I also did a little shopping whilst i was in Hong Kong, there are so many shopping malls to choose from you really are spoilt for choice! Firstly i visited 'The One' shopping centre in Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, 100 Nathan Road. It is a hub of little boutiques with some absaloutly beautiful clothes and home interiors, with the top floor of shops consisting of nothing other than homewares and accessories, as you could probably guess i was in there a long time gathering inspiration. There were brands from Umbra to Miho, definitely worth a visit if you are ever in that area!

I also visited the fantastic DNA shopping complex at 61- 65 Chatham Road South, again in Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon. It is just full of little indipendant boutiques selling handmade homeware and clothes, there was even a miniture dolls house store! Have a look below at some of the photos i took here:
