The Purrfect Flea Market For Cat-Lovers (Part 2) – Tan Lili

Love cats and browsing flea markets? Enjoy the best of both worlds at Purrzaar, a feline-themed flea market that’s held in conjunction with the month-long Cats of the World Photo Exhibition this August!

Held over three Saturdays (August 3, 10 and 17), this year’s Purrzaar boasts 18 vendors – the highest number of vendors they’ve had since its launch in 2011! Own a kitty? Fancy Feast will be giving away door gifts, which each consists of their cat food products (while stocks last).

As the official media partner of Cats of the World Photo Exhibition and Purrzaar, Material World will be featuring different vendors every week and giving you a sneak peek at what they will be selling. This week, check out MunchyNeko and Our Mama Store.


“Cats are special because they rule the Internet!”

Launched in March 2013, MunchyNeko is the brainchild of four cat owners who were brought together by their love for good food (Munchy) and their Muchkin pet cats (Neko – “cat” in Japanese).

These kitties could get away with any crime.

Featuring adorable photos of their beloved cats on postcards, tote bags, mugs, greeting cards, and more, MunchyNeko hopes to share those whimsical and endearing moments with fellow feline lovers. Check out more photos of the four superstars on Facebook and Instagram.

“Cats are like women; they do as they please!”

Started by two ladies who were born on the same day, month and year, Our Mama Store stocks unique, interesting items lovingly curated by them from around the world. At this year’s Purrzaar, apart from selling lifestyle items that are currently available at their online shop, they will also be selling handmade cat sock dolls, like the ones below.
