Quirk of the Month: kikki.K Stickers

This Swedish home and office stationary store was founded by entrepreneur Kristina “Kikki” Karlsson almost a decade ago, but I first laid my eyes on a kikki.K store in Singapore just last month. Where have you been all my life?

Price tag: SG$5.90/ AU$4.95/ NZ$5.90

Since 2001, kikki.K stores have been set up all over Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Auckland, and Singapore, giving customers a fashionable collection of stationery products and creative gifts.

With only a few minutes to spend in the store that day (I was on a tight tourist schedule, wink, wink), I had to quickly purchase an item of my liking. Oh, I could have stayed in kikki.K for hours, just browsing through the cutest things! But I did narrow down my choice to one good find—Life’s Little Stickers, two sheets of thumbnail-sized appointment stickers that you could use for calendars and organizers.

Here’s to wishing that kikki.K expands her market to the Philippines.
