One stop shop for all things pretty!

My new favourite place to get my accessories fix. They sell a large array of necklaces, rings, headbands etc for any and every occassion. The accessories sell are all cheap and good, some at 3 for 10 which i think is really value for money judging that other shops sell one accessory at 10 bucks or more.

I have bought some pretty long ago and they are still in good condition up till now. So that shows the quality and condition of their goods. The belts are all very fashionable too. They have many branches around singapore, in bugis and 2 outlets just in far east plaza alone.

Trendy and cheap accessories.

Definitely a place for you to check on if you're a trend hopper! They stock in the latest accessories such as the metal collar necklaces or the peter pan collars. They also have alot of bundle packages like 3 for $5 or 3 for $10. My fav of all has to be their sunglasses and spectacle frames where they are selling it 2 for $12 - no harm getting a few pairs, especially if you're as careless as me, always losing them!

They sell really cheap bags as well, never bought them before, and the quality of some seems to be rather decent.

Of course, since the prices of their items are pretty low, the items don't last. I have a couple of their 'silver/gold' that has faded into a weird mushy color - not very attractive, but it's still hanging in my closet. I'm just waiting for a day where dirty and faded gold/silver accessories are in trend :3

I love the interesting shades there!

Talisman really sells a wide variety of accessories like belts to caps to shades to hair accessories to bags. I really love exploring the shades at Talisman as they really have interesting funny ones! Their shades are also very affordable at around $10 and I have been using mine from there for more than 1 half years!

I bought a fake leather bag from there too. I really love the fact that they have so many different kinds of bags for you to choose from and I bought mine at $18. The quality is not really good but it can last more than half a year and for a person who likes to change bags frequently, it is value for money!

Affordable accessories and bags but lacking in quality

Talisman's offers quite affordable accessories and bags - bags usually cost from $10 onwards, and accessories can cost from $1 or $2 onwards so it really is a decent place to shop if you're looking for cheap accessories and bags.

Their designs are usually copied from high-end fashion brands, although nowadays everyone copies everyone so you can see the same type of design in a myriad of stores. If you don't mind buying knock-off or imitation goods, then Talisman's will surely satisfy you.

The bad part is that their quality is inconsistent; the strap on my friend's bag came undone only a few months after she bought the bag, whereas the necklace I bought is still quite intact albeit a little rusty.

Good place to shop for accessories

Usually, one item will cost $10, buying 2 will be cheaper at $15, so it's good that the shop gives discounts for more purchases. Furthermore, the 2 items don't have to be the same, they can be one bangle and one wallet for example.

I bought 2 bangles, 2 wallets and a bag for just $43! They have a wide range of items to choose from and the quality is reasonable, given the price. The belts however were slightly tarnished and some white belts was already off-colour so I decided to give it a miss even though they looked like a really good buy. Nevertheless, definitely a good place to shop at with good service from the staff as well!

Affordable range of fun accessories

They may be a little gawdy and tacky on first sight, but if you dig hard enough, there are actually some pieces and accessories that will suit you extremely well. This is due to their extreme variety of headbands, belts, hats, wigs and other jewellery. There are always promotions to buy more at a cheaper price, like a bundle of 3 for $5 for cheaper bracelets, or buy 2 get 1 free for necklaces.

Talisman's is the kind of place that will attract students and youths because of their price. I find myself being more open to buying things in their store and actually end up spending more than I expected in the store because I keep thinking that it's inexpensive. The quality of the accessories isn't the best of course, but it definitely lasts long enough for whatever trend. Definitely worth it.

cheap and interesting

Talisman's sells really cheap accessories such as necklaces, earrings, belts, bags, funky spectacles, headgears etc. I used to buy their belts as they are casual, not too dressy but still makes a statement with my clothes. The belts are sold at $5 for 1 or 3 for $10 which is very affordable! If you are looking for classy and uniquely designed belts, Talisman's is not the place for you. Since the belts are so cheap, I was expecting them to spoil in 3 months time. However, I have been using them on a regular basis for over a year and they are still in good condition!

Talisman's also sells interesting eye wears and head gears which are perfect for parties or as accessories on "act cute days".

Overall, a very interesting shop to visit.

Really cheap

I really love patronising Talisman because the items there are just so cheap! Items are sold in a bundle - 3 for $5, 3 for $10, and so on. We can buy single items as well, but its wiser to buy in a bundle since you can save up on a lot! They always bring in new accessories that are in the trend, so I assure you that you will never get bored visiting the shop.

I just went to the branch in Plaza Singapura a few days ago and bought 5 hairbands and a necklace, all just for a total of $15! Definitely worth it. I love the bags and wallets they sell as well; they're all "my type" and there're just so much to choose from! But I have to admit that the quality may be a bit lacking, my wallet didn't last for a long time. But you pay for what you get. I'm that kind who changes my wallet every few months anyway, so it doesn't matter.

Cheap.

I tend to wander in Talisman's when I'm bored and in town. That said, I hardly buy anything from the shop. Having browsed through the accessories at Talisman's so many times, I have to admit, the shop indeed stocks up on an extremely varied accessories selection, selling at some of the lowest prices in Singapore. However, Talisman's accessories turn me off greatly. Why? One word - tacky.

The necklaces at Talisman's are made of cheap metal that seem like they rust very easily. Also, some of the motifs are extremely tasteless. Really, I don't quite think anyone would be interested in buying 3D mini monkeys hanging from a bronze metal chain.

The bracelets and rings are pretty common. Likewise, the rings are made of equally cheap metal, and I have an aching suspicion that they might rust with the slightest presence of palm sweat.

Talisman's also sells wallets and purses. And although the design seems alright, but the quality of these wallets are downright horrible. I have a friend who purchased a wallet from Talisman's and after only a week of use, the button for the coin compartment was hanging out by the seams and one of the zips had spoiled. Ridiculous quality!

The hats seem fine. Though they're pretty common as well, and I can probably find similar ones all around Bugis Street.

Not a very big fan of Talisman's, but it's amusing to walk in and watch preteen girls getting excited by the sheer number of cheap accessories.

Meh

I'm definitely giving this store a miss the next time I walk by. From the outside, it looks like a great store because it seems like the rows and rows are stocked with lovely accessories. But when you walk inside, you realize that everything is completely mainstream and there is an almost painful lack of creativity and originality.

It's affordable yes, but I'm sure you'd want something special to wear out wouldn't you? Well if you answered yes then I suggest trying a different place.
