Get ready for a truly unique experience at the MINT Museum of Toys as we launch our second GUERRILLA event in collaboration with the prestigious online luxury boutique, My Grandfatherā€™s Things. Following the immense success of our first pop-up experiences event during the 2022 Christmas season, we are thrilled to present GUERRILLA Featuring: My Grandfatherā€™s Things, an extraordinary celebration of rare, vintage, luxury Chanel and Hermes handbags. 

Running from 30 June to 31 October 2023, this event promises an exquisite blend of shopping, exhibition, photo-taking, screenings, and delectable F&B concepts that will captivate luxury bag enthusiasts and collectors alike.

Why is a Toy Museum hosting a Pop-Up on Luxury Handbags?

You might wonder why a toy museum is venturing into the realm of exhibiting luxury Chanel and Hermes handbags. Well, here at the MINT Museum of Toys, we believe that itā€™s the small, everyday item ā€“ be it a Mickey Mouse toy or a well-loved handbag ā€“ that has the power to reflect larger changes in society. These material goods provide us with a lens through which we can discuss larger ideas around uniqueness, craftsmanship, and the allure of luxury fashion. 

This collaboration with My Grandfatherā€™s Things, in particular, is a tribute to the beauty and history of rare vintage luxury bags and our attempt to foster kinship between professional and beginner collectors in Singapore. We want to offer our visitors an unconventional shopping experience that marries the worlds of retail and curation, where you can explore, appreciate, and share knowledge on the history behind these secondhand treasures.

Unveiling the Elegance of Vintage Chanel and Hermes Bags

My Grandfatherā€™s Things has truly curated a spectacular collection that showcases the evolution of luxury fashion over the decades. 

During the grand opening from 30 June to 2 July 2023, visitors could see, learn about, and even opt to purchase around 60 vintage bags from Chanel and Hermes. Discontinued styles and colourways of iconic Chanel bags like the Diana and Kelly from the 1980s to the 2000s were on display, accompanied by the founder of My Grandfatherā€™s Things who was on hand to provide unique details and insights about the bags. Through bridging the gap between traditional exhibitions and retail events, the MINT Museum of Toys continues to reimagine what shopping could become if we valued knowledge, style, and community building in the process.

Though the retail aspect of the exhibition has ended, the pop-up isnā€™t over just yet! From now till 31 October 2023, pop-up visitors can look forward to seeing around 18 vintage Chanel Diana handbags. These bags were specifically produced between 1986 to 1996 and display all the hallmarks of Chanelā€™s high-value production quality. From leathers to hardware, soak up all the small details that encapsulate why the Diana has remained so popular for literal decades on end.

Whether you are a seasoned collector or totally new to the world of luxury handbags, this exhibition caters to all. Immerse yourself in a close-up experience, and discover the stories behind these timeless pieces.
