AC+632

AC +632 – This lovely shop in the midst of Greenbelt 5, is my Europe heaven in Manila.  Each time I am in Greenbelt, and just when I am in a rush to go somewhere, the shop window attracts my attention and evokes feelings of wonder that I can’t help but walk in. 

When I step inside the store, I feel like I’ve been transported to a different world and at a different time. I get lost in all the refinement that is around me, and then the adventure begins! 

In the store there is something for everyone - For the lady of the house who loves fine things, for the fashionable man of the house who loves adventure and also for the creative and playful child.  

Let me start my tale in these photos:

Once inside, you can't help but stare at the collective group of chandeliers


Home accents abound



Matching accessories for the bath and powder room





Bird pairs!  They can make for nice home decor and can dress up the dining table for celebrations at home.






They also have dinner sets




I love the fine embroidery on these table napkins



One can never have enough of tassles.  You can hang these on a lamp switch,on the knob of a dresser drawer for a touch of character or use as napkin rings.





Don't worry, the fox will not bite



Fragrance sachets for cabinets and drawers



Lovely home decor









Citronella insect coils



Gardening tools

Planning a picnic would be so much easier with this organized picnic basket. Just grab and go!

I love the planter! I rarely see planters like this!



Matching table covers and napkins



Sugar bowls



These aged mirrors have so much character

I love how these bowls look like half open ostrich eggs. But then again, maybe they are!


I also love their serving trays


They also have one of a kind jewelry



I love the texture of this nature inspired miniaudiere from Wynn Wynn Ong 













I love the dressing room. It looks like a mini theater.


These walking canes are perfect for the old world gentleman



The busts remind me of the one that Bruce Wayne has.


If you have a man cave behind a secret door this has to be the coolest way to open it.  
Bruce Wayne pulls back the head of his Shakespeare Bust in his study to reveal the switch for his bat-poles.
