The Purrfect Flea Market For Cat-Lovers (Part 3) – 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 StuffSusieMade and Momshoo.


Cats tend to be aloof but if you take the time to know them, they’ll do their best to love you back!

Owner Susanna’s love of crochet began when she was only 10 years old – and her passion hasn’t wavered since. This year, besides the ever-popular Kitty Cupcakes (talk about guilt-free indulgence!), she will also be bringing in a whole bunch of other knitted cat-themed items, including little catnip-filled fishes for your feline friends.




Cats are the most manja creatures around; you just have to squat down, and they would come rub themselves against you.

Started in 2009 by Shu Ning and her mum, Momshoo features hand-stitched/hand-knitted whimsical creations. At Purrzaar, you can expect to see a plenty of lovingly made items from the mother-daughter duo, including cat brooches, pouches, and fabric passport covers.
