People in Malaysia love a good market. It is the normal way of shopping for most, and all the necessary supplies can be purchased there. However, vintage and antique markets are still a rare occurrence, which makes Arcadia KL an even more special find. It is easy to locate in Kuala Lumpur and remains a one-stop-shop for lovers of all things vintage, unique, and a little special.
Arcadia KL is a hidden gem in the city and this is one of the reasons that is it such a pleasure to stumble across it. The shopping malls in Kuala Lumpur are very focused on expensive, western designer brands and through the shopping malls, many of the same stores can be found. Arcadia KL is definitely one of a kind, and anyone searching for something eye-catching, authentic, and with a story behind it will find plenty to choose from in this store.
Though Arcadia KL specializes mainly in vintage furniture and other homeware, this store also stocks a whole load of paraphernalia, wide-ranging in type and seemingly unrelated, except for the fact that all the items are awesome! Limited edition art prints lean against vintage cabinets, which are topped with typewriters, toys, models, stationery, and many other random curios. Last but not least, Arcadia KL wouldn’t be what it is without the old arcade games and jukeboxes strategically decorating the store, which are also for sale of course.
Everything in Arcadia is priced up, though there is a certain amount of flexibility on the pricing. As with many vintage and antique stores, it is worth striking up a conversation with the store owners here as there’s always room for a bit of haggling. These guys love their products and enjoy a good chat with shoppers enthusiastic about their wares. There is always a possible deal to be made, especially for those tempted by more than one amazing item in here, which tends to be the majority of visitors!
