More than just a boutique store, it's a stage, a voice, and a dream-maker.
If you didn't already know, the name of our cafe "Boufe" is actually a combination of the words "Boutique" and "Cafe".
Boufe started off with OHVOLA, an established ladies apparel label online, with the aim to fuse both our love of fashion and food together.
9 months after our official launch, OHVOLA was offered a larger boutique space at PoMo and has since then moved out of Boufe.
That's when a new dream started.
The now vacant boutique space can serve as an avenue for other brands, just like OHVOLA, to have their own physical space to showcase their products, and to grow their brand awareness among the public.
Just like dancers, good products also require a stage before they can perform for the world to see.
And that's what Bou Store aims to be.
A stage, a voice, and a dream-maker.
Bou Store has a strong liking for homegrown brands because we believe in supporting local talents, exquisitely handmade items, and other unique products that spark our interest.
We hope to be a voice for these brands that we've sourced and loved, and promote them via our social media platforms, promotions and other collaborations with our cafe.
This is something we're really excited about, and hope that our customers will look forward to them too.
The FamousPopArt - $35 for 1, $60 for 2
Featuring all our favourite characters from superhero movies, celebrities from Hollywood, and even the widely loved Minions!
The Famous POPART has them with relatable quotes that just screams out to us.
It's really hard at work looking at them everyday and trying not to buy all of them home for ourselves.
One of our part-time staff currently owns 3 Captain America Popart pieces!
Now everyone can own a piece of art as a group of art enthusiasts at TheFamousPopArt brings back the pop art scene that has its origin back in the 1950s.

Geometric Glass - $26 - $36
To the trained eye, there is just so much potential in this unassuming glass piece.
It's an ideal decorative item for your room, it can be a cosy house for your air plants, you can DIY it to become a unique gift packaging, and it's simply the perfect prop for every single one of your photos.

Timeless accessories of highest quality produced from elements sourced from regions all over the globe, come take a look and try them on for yourselves at Bou Store!

ZtyleCo - $34.90 - $69.90
One of my personal favourite brands for customized gifts has now taken personalisation to a whole new level with their Chace by ZtyleCo collection,
using high quality luxury materials, and at an extremely pocket friendly price!
Customized gifts always feels so much more meaningful, where each and every product holds meaning to its own.
All of ZtyleCo's collections are self-designed and manufactured, which makes it exclusive to their site with handstamping / hotstamping technique where no two items will be the same.

Visual Mass - $95 - $125
With an array of interesting eyewear design laid out in front of you, how does one resist not trying them on?
All of Visual Mass' glasses are specially manufactured in Korea and exclusively imported for Visual Mass.
I own a few pairs of Visual Mass glasses myself, and after all these years, they are still some of my favourite to-go pieces when it comes to matching with outfits.
When you purchase the $95 glasses at Bou Store, we will issue you a receipt which entitles you a FREE upgrade to Hi-Index lenses (worth $135) which are thinner and lighter at the Visual Mass showroom!
Can someone say value-for-money?
Our resident model for Bou Store's Visual Mass glasses... a.k.a. one of our Boufe bosses!
Visual Mass was founded on the belief that design-conscious eyewear need not cost an arm and a leg.
Good-looking and good quality glasses can go hand in hand with a good price.
Visual Mass' aim is to revolutionise the eyewear industry by creating value for both our customers and the larger community.
Terrarium4u $85 - $145
My current obsession at Bou Store is this Romance terrarium on the left!
Reminds me so much of the scene in the movie Up, with Carl & Ellie,
where they would always go up a grassy hill and lie under a tree to look at the clouds.
The ultimate relationship goal!
Urbanization rapidly spreading across the world has seen the loss of agricultural sites and natural habitats.
Today, those open spaces are gone, covered by shopping centers, housing, or other urban land uses.
Overwhelmed by hectic city life and trapped in our concrete jungle, the nice folks at Terrarium4u began to explore ways to reconnect with nature and came across self-sustaining miniature garden in a bottle.
The prospect of a realistic glass vessel of nature that could thrive indoors and the endless decorating possibilities that came along with them.
Terrarium4u was founded to share an awareness for nature.
Their terrariums blend easily with any home or working environment.
They aim to create miniature landscape or scene that we can relate to – a reminder of something you love or yearn.
As quality is paramount to Terrarium4u, you will only find high quality materials in their products.
All mosses are tested and meticulously inspected prior to use in their terrariums.
Above all, each creation is unique and can be customised to the finest detail.
Terrarium4u invites you to join them in the journey to greenify your environment!
CrossLace - $8 - $18
Just upgraded my heels' lace to CrossLace's White Yeezy Lace with Gold Aglets, and I'm asking myself why didn't I find out about these earlier!
They make my kicks look absolutely fabulous, and I love the jingly sound they make when I strut around in my newly pimped heels.
Time to revolutionize your shoes with CrossLace.
Everyone can have a nice pair of kicks. The difference is all in the small details.
Just for the OHVOLA fans who've supported Boufe since we opened, Bou Store still has their bags and shoes available at our shelves!
