    I passed by one just behind Waterloo area on the way towards SLS. It looked to be just beside an old church, and had LOTS of figurines of the usual characters even in large sizes like what you would find in churches.

    I think you're referring to Queen Street, next to Church of Saints Peter and Paul? Not been inside the shop myself, but yup, from the window displays, they do look like they have quite a selection.

    Yeah! That sounds like the one! If you look up at the 2nd floor window fronting the street, you can see lots of tall statues jammed against the glass as if they were looking out over the street!

    yes... all catholic churches have their own gift shop, but not all carry the same stuff. i think the one next to Saints Peter and Paul church is one of the biggest around.

    Sorry, I can't really help there, but you can contact the editors of "the Catholic News", they usually are very resourceful and able to point you in the right direction.

    you could also try:

    Katong Catholic Book Centre
    182 East Coast Road
    (near Holy Family Church)

    Most Catholic churches have a gift shop as well.

    Figurines of saints are harder to find than statues of Jesus and Mary, except for the popular ones like St Anthony of Padua.

    How about the churches themselves? Holy Cross or St Marys will be a few options. I only came across Christian shops for a start in most of the shopping malls.
