Hullo! I'm Ruth and I'm the Happyshopkeeper. Thanks for dropping by.
IN LOVE WITHI've always loved paper goods. As a kid, I just knew I absolutely adored the cutesy letter sets my friends and I feverishly negotiated for and exchanged every week.
Even now I have loads of notebooks, notepads, colour envelopes, sticky notesets, postcards and cards, ... along with other quirky knick-knacks like assorted and orphaned ribbons, buttons, strings and whatnots. I especially love the nostalgic black and white postcards of places I haven't been. And yes, if I like you a lot, I may just use these prized collections to write to you!
THE BRIGHT IDEAI spend too much time online -- surfing, facebooking, shopping and whatnot... and I couldn't find any shopsite based in Singapore that carried all these pretty stuff from overseas and more. That's how The Little Happyshop came to be. I do hope Happyshop will help end your quest for the sweetest practical everyday item on your desk or in your bag, or for the special gifts for your special someones!
"THAT THING YOU DO"Well... I was an analyst before collecting interesting students in a teaching career. When it was time to declutter my life for my true loves, I closed The Previous Chapters to focus on my family and the mission of happy things. I try to make a little time to do a mishmash of other favourite things. Like cooking. Getting lost in the crowd. Savouring a latte. Forgetting the time in a bookstore. And reading all sorts of magazines. Normal stuff, really.
DO WRITE!It's always great to put a face to a name. I'd love to hear from you. Write me?
