Chanced upon this cool little knick knack store at Bras Basah Complex. What a cool name huh? Cat Socrates. A philosophizing cat. The Chesire cat from Alice and Wonderland immediately comes to mind.
As photos were not allowed inside (it’s good when a sticker is placed on the door so we know) I can just show you the store front. I absolutely loved the mint green bicycle placed in front of the store. Pretty vintage style bicycles do make the best decorations – the last time I saw one was inside the indie Cafe Group Therapy.
B commented that the young owners must love cats as he too was drawn to the pretty cat inside the store. He is more of an animal person than I am as I never had pets growing up, aside from fish. He liked the items too and got a phone case. They sell stationary, phone cases and yeah all those little things you don’t really need but can’t resist.
Found more information about the store and owner here.

i m in love with this place.
It was such a nice discovery when we least expected it.
thanks for sharing 🙂
Ah.. I was at bras basah complex on Wednesday but missed this. I must explore it the next time I’m there!
Ya it was easy to miss. Really kinda tucked away and we just chanced upon it captivated by the pretty bike.
Can I bring my cat into the shop? http://bit.ly/RrbRz0
I’m not sure but I think owners who love cats probably won’t mind? You could ask them?
Friend mentioned this place in passing. Did u like the stuff there? Wanna go and check it out now.. hehe
Lots of interesting knick knacks like cases and cards and such. Quite unique.
Went because of your post and loved it! I really had to hold to on my wallet with two hands not to walk away with the entire inventory. Managed to leave with just a small sample :). It’s right next door to the library, so I’m afraid I’ll be stopping by more often!
I’m so glad the post helped you to spend money 😉 just kidding
