The four-storey massive warehouse is filled with basically anything that you can, and cannot imagine. From ceramics found in the Eastern Europe to retro furniture, art, bikes, curios, mannequins, life size Star Wars figurines, the possibility is endless. Mr. Tong and his team travel to Europe every three months to source for antiques to add to their existing collections. Meaning there’s always something new on every visit.
