When you’re looking for places to buy CNY decorations there are a lot of shops to choose from. A recent survey with the customers of CNYGoodies.SG has reflected that many people actually think that Chinatown is the only place to fulfil your CNY decoration needs!
Singapore is packed with wonderful boutique stalls, high-end stores and online stores all selling bright and exciting trinkets for your home or office. The best part about this is that they are not from Chinatown and some of these shops actually offer free delivery! This is a huge plus point as we believe we speak for many when we say we hate getting stuck in stuffy crowds.
So, where are the best places to buy CNY decorations in Singapore? Who provides delivery?
To help you out, we have narrowed down the selection to these eight wonderful stores!

The online store offers a large range of contemporary furniture and decorations at a reasonable price without sacrificing on quality. For Chinese New Year, Masons brings out a beautiful collection of items which includes plenty of modern lanterns plus hanging decorations and realistic-looking replica cherry blossoms.

The Singapore-based company — founded on April Fools’ Day 2013 — has a knack for coming up with original twists on décor that look great yet are still of very high quality.

There’s a huge collection on offer covering every room of the house. All their products can be seen on their online shop but there’s also an experience store at The Cathay. Hipvan also provides delivery when you shop on their website.

Much like the rest of their products, their CNY pieces are contemporary and will make a great addition to most homes or offices. The items can be ordered online or from one of their two brick-and-mortar stores based in Singapore.
