If your home was a museum, what would you collect, archive and display? Some might choose to showcase their stamp collection; others might opt to exhibit their stuffed animals. Join three heritage collectors and researchers in a private sharing session centred on their love for collecting traditional food moulds, cooking utensils and blades.
Do you have your own collection of items? Share it with us and tag us on our socials @sgheritagefest - we love seeing new contributions!
