Collection For Friends / 私藏不藏私.

Collection For Friends (私藏不藏私) is a little cafe hidden in the alleys of  the area of Zhonghe (中和) in Taipei and a treasure trove of zakka knick-knacks, vintage cameras and handmade goodness. It was an impromptu visit (back in February when we weren’t so busy!) and I used nearly an entire roll of film at this place – there are just too many things you’d want to capture – and was kicking myself for not bringing a camera with higher speed film. I have to say, though, I’m quite happy with the pastel tones, it suits the mood of the cafe quite nicely.

  1. Katie!!! I miss you. (In other words: I haven’t commented for awhile and probably should.) You visit so many little eateries; it is always interesting to see each one. And are those scissors shaped like the Eiffel Tower? Hahaha. I like them.

    1. Dawn!! :) I’m not such a good comment-leaver myself so no judgement is passed! There are so many wonderful diners and cafes, I wish I could go on trips around the world just to take pictures of them all. And yes, those are little Eiffel Tower scissors! :)

  2. I’m visiting Taipei later this month and this cafe looks really awesome!! Could you provide information on the address of this place please? :) I’ve googled around and nothing’s really showed up. Recommendations to any other interesting places are fine too! Just discovered your blog and you’ve some nice pictures! :)
