Experience a personal shopping tour in a treasure trove
Nov 2021 • Family
Warm personal welcome! Found exactly what I was looking for plus learned so much more about the antique product and it’s history. The staffmember, Elaine, is exceptional: she gave me a tour of the premises, took photos of me (often businesses say photos are forbidden) and spent time explaining the variety of goods on offer, from tea tasting to Peranakan ceramics. I will definitely return to East Inspirations in Future.

Teapot for my mother!
Nov 2021
I came across this shop after joining a tea appreciation session and I LOVED IT! I highly recommend it if you are looking for a very unique, traditional and beautiful gift for anyone plus the service is amazing too! It was very nice to meet the whole family at the shop when I was looking for a traditional tea pot for my mother. They have amazing items at the shop and also a tea room for tea appreciation sessions which you can join as well! Thank you very much for all your help.

Online purchase and amazing service !!!
Oct 2021 • Solo
I live in New Zealand and needed a special gift for my sister in Singapore. East Inspirations had so many beautiful items to choose from online.
Mr Cheong was so amazingly helpful. He gift wrapped, and organised a card. He emailed me at every step of the way and even when I made an error with my sisters address he personally took care of that as well. He retrieved the gift, called my sister and got it delivered to the correct address.
He went out of his way to help.
Thank you so much, when you buy online sight unseen it always feels a little strange, Mr Cheong took my worry away from me and did the best job ever!! My sister loves her present 🎁

Favorite shop!
Oct 2020
This is one of my favorite places in Singapore!!! I always find something interesting- items for making tea, beautiful blue and white Chinese porcelain "pillows" or a lovely and unique lamp. The shop owner is a tea master and you can arrange to tea tasting. the sales help is the wonderful Elaine- she is so full of fantastic stories about the items in the shop. Every time I go I discover something fantastic!

A Fabulous Find - Interesting Inventory from Hospitable Hosts
Jul 2020
I wandered in one day, looking for a special piece and came across a gorgeous ceramic stool. Those with general designs are easy to find but I was looking for something unique - it was as if this was waiting for me!

In a pleasant and professional way, the piece was explained to me so I brought home not only a new item of furniture but a real story. Thank you!!!

What a shame that I only chance upon this hidden gem recently! Being a Singaporean I’m charmed by not only the items from this lovely shop, also because how Elaine n Uncle Cheong has brought every piece to life by sharing its background n history! A rare place to uncover hidden gems and and discovery of life experience ❤️

An antique gallery and a Chinese teahouse.
Jun 2020
East Inspiration is a treasure hut full of surprises. I bought a beautiful piece of antique cabinet and discovered so many others unique collectible items as well. Mr.Cheong- shop owner and Sales Associate-Elaine are very helpful and knowledgeable. If you like, you may also join them for a tea session and discover yourself the beauty of Asian cultures and experience the warmest hospitality from Singapore!
