Mr. Blacksmith is at 80 Queen's Road East, (Greeson Road), Wanchai. Photos taken with app "cross process" (thanks yan!)

One of my favorite shops in Hong Kong is Mr. Blacksmith in Wanchai. What started as a Christmas gift mission quickly turned into a mental checklist of things i don't really need but want. The downstairs section is full of little knick-knacks such as pens, cards, board games and such, whilst upstairs stores a bunch of cool furniture (magritte-esque bowler hat lamps, floral paper deer wall busts, and neon signs galore). I like to think that if someone needs to buy a gift, heading to this shop won't give you a lot of leeway for mistakes. And of course I had a lot of fun just imagining decorating a future apartment with everything in there (i mean...that mirror....ugh).
So if any of you guys need to buy a gift or self-gift to spice up your apartment, check it out some time.
