Headquartered in Far East Plaza. Impassioned to provide our customers with a wide variety of quality products at an affordable price.
Talisman's are keen to bring in all the latest product out there since 2005. Which allow the customers to have a variety of accessories products to choose from.
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.
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 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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
