The lady who was pretty much my chief wedding planner, Miss E, recently opened up a vintage home store and bakery cafe with a couple of her friends. The quaint little store named Carpenter & Cook located at Lorong Kilat is a visual feast for all who walk through the glass doors. Take a peek!
C&C serves up light snacks such as sandwiches and scones. With the BFF, we ordered the valrhona sea salt caramel tart. Well, to be exact, we had TWO of these super duper yummy tarts. And check out the pretty plates they’re served on! I also had a cup of camomile tea to go along. It was just perfect. Ahhhh….
Did I mention that most of the stuff you see at the store are for sale? That includes vintage furniture as well as the plates that you eat on.
There’s also a cupboard full of homemade goodies such as jam and marshmellows that you can purchase home. We bought a pack of chocolate marshmellows for a friend and she loved it!
The BFF also made a crotchet doily for Miss E as a store-opening present. I think it looks just perfect in the store, especially when paired with their vintage telephone that works (it is the store’s phone). I spent quite a bit of time playing with the number dial. Such a classic!
If you’re a fan of vintage furniture, homemade food or simply enjoy pretty things, you’d have to go check out Carpenter & Cook. Oh and they also provide dessert tables, styling services, vintage props and decor for weddings, parties, photoshoots and more.
