i am obsessed with old things, and these days i have been a little crazy about old chairs.

and this barber's chair is so wonderful i absolutely need one (for what i don't know!).

all photos from this wonderful online antique store.

Me me me! I love all things vintage as well. I wonder if we can still find the old barber's chair somewhere in S'pore. I thought I saw it in use, or was that in M'sia? :p

turn the barber chair into a massage chair ;)

or a "baby" chair with the plank across the arm-rests; just like the old days!

cookie cutter: yes singapore also have, i saw before somewhere but can't remember where!

o8ight: eh i've always thought that the baby chair idea is so cool! just one plank across the arm rest. it's actually quite scary for whoever who has to sit on the plank! haha

It might be near Bugis, the temples area.
Vaguely remember there's still this uncle operating the vanishing trade of backalley barber service.
