KITSCHY CHINA COMBS
I really love these handpainted wooden combs from Chang-zhou, China but Singaporeans don't seem to. I've had them in my blog shop for a long time and none sold (they are already withdrawn from my shop). The reason is there is no demand for chinese items since we are chinese. Also when people here think of china art, they are regarded as old-fashioned and dawdy. I find that very disappointing because I like the style. I like grandma stuff and oldschoolness. Chinese art is also nicely detailed. It has a nice hint of retro and stylised animals. Maybe I shall offer these on Etsy where international folks can appreciate it. My faves would be the tiger and horse! Let me know what you think.
