About Us

Ship Of Time is an oasis tucked away in the hustle and bustle of city life, a home away from home, a third space to gather a sense of self. ⁠At Ship Of Time, everyday feels like Sunday. It is a space carved out to showcase beautiful goods, obscure designers and their compelling back stories. Each one of them, standing tall on their own. ⁠  

We invite you to drift away inside our hidden enclave. Abandon yourself, and breeze through a selection of timeless, slow-made and thoughtful goods.⁠

 Officially opened on 21 Oct 2019, Ship of Time Lifestyle Store is right next to our first brick and mortar, Essential Extra Gift Store, at the heart of The Central Business District at Shenton Way, Singapore.

Opened in May 2018, our first brick and mortar, Essential Extra thrived as a gifting convenience store. A tiny select shop tucked away in busy Shenton Way Central Business District showcasing goods from obscure designers, unfolding their backstories. We aim to inspire working people in a stressful, sterile concrete jungle, with just the right amount of gifting options and ideas.

Over the years, we were approached by indie apparel designers and makers of soft goods requesting to stock with us. Ship Of Time was set up for this reason. Essential Extra is about speed and convenience, while Ship Of Time slows things down a few notches. Pauses. Savoring life.

Both shops are our experiments and iterations. Good design remains the underlying current. Except, the former is about speed, the latter about slow living. In all, there are about 50 different brands spanning both shops.

Nothing is set in stone. And we treat both shops with the same mindset - authentic, modular, inspirational - shifting as the retail climate shifts, spearheading a different kind of retail experience.

No one needs more. We need just the right amount. Bite-sized. Streamlined. Curated.
