With the help of Faye Whittaker and Wheng White... I got directions and found the beautiful cross stitch shop that I went absolutely nuts over.
It's called FRAMES UNIQUE. Owned and run by Elana Chua.
I know I'm not the only one who has been searching hong kong for stash... so.... I thought I'd document my hunt for you.
Here are the directions:
Take the MTR to Prince Edward station (even if the address says Mongkok, go to Prince Edward--- lessens your walking) (trust me-- if you're in HK, you'll be walking. A LOT. Shortcuts are your best friend).
Take B2 exit and when you come out... walk to the corner in front (around 7 steps) then turn left. You'll see this green squat square building. Cross the street to the back of it.
|This is the Nullah Road Refuse Post... otherwise known as the green squat building.|
|This is the sign you're looking for. WHen you see this, look right. You'll see a fish pet store. Ignore it. Instead, look for the silver barred door.|
|This is the right floor. See the number 2 on the wall? Enter the door and turn left.|
|Elana and I.|
|One of Elana's cats really wanted to come home with me-- jumped in my bag and stayed there while I browsed her store.|
|This fellow would keep jumping up on the shelf and stay with me as I browsed through the various kits and patterns . I'd keep reaching out to pet him--- so cute and friendly.|
|This cat has different colored eyes..... it's the cat on her door!!! Isn't that sooo cool?|
Go and visit Elana in her store. She's super duper nice and helpful.
Hope my directions are clear enough. Let me know if you need clarifications.
