A collection of oddities at Papaya Vintage Shop

Odd Thomas. Dean Koontz. That’s exactly what Papaya Vintage Shop reminded me of. The shop could even be the film location of a dark, twisted, mysterious kind of movie. Intrigued yet? Papaya Vintage Shop is a 31-year old vintage shop at Lat Phrao, with a mix of things: from furniture, to clocks, ‘creepy’ dolls (cue: Annabelle) etc.

Bringing my sis’ family here made an interesting break from the daily mundane of Bangkok-tourist life. My brother-in-law who is into vintage things was drawn to few furniture pieces. He was told that their stuffs are a mix of local Thai and imported from Europe.

Travel opens up a whole new world, which is cliche but true. I am a strong advocate for independent and solo travel. I was born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia but now live in Bangkok, Thailand, resulted from a chance encounter in 2009 with my why-are-you-Thai bf. I am now split between two countries. One country for my bf, another for the family, for the occasional weekend together.
