Old Shop

I came across this old school shop on the edge of Little India in Singapore. Beautiful old dark stained wood with glass and ceramic containers and the old money pail with bell attached. Strange how sparse it was, compared to the visual noise of modern day neighborhood shops like this. There also seemed to be an eclectic choice of items - beautiful as they were to look at, for example the three box trays on the side counter that had tree fungus, lily buds and red dates. Why was the flour in an open ceramic container? It looked like a set from a play.
