The New 52 Degrees and their Ramadan Exhibition

By | July 17, 2012

Last week I received a Ramadan gift and an invitation to attend 52 Degree’s Ramadan exhibition for home accessories and dara’as (post). What I didn’t expect though is that the new 52 Degrees section would be open and that I’d get a sneak peek of something no one had seen before 😉

Lets start with never seen thing. 52 Degrees manager Hamad Al-Ali took us behind the scenes to show us their new Ramadan commercial. Its not finalized yet so I cannot say anything about it but I can say that its funny 😉 Thank you 7md for the sneak peek!

The first thing I do whenever I am in 52 Degrees is check out my book. There it is right by the cashier! I have to say it really stands out between the other books <3

Now to the  Ramadan exhibition. The first thing I looked at was their selection of side tables, new and old, traditional and funky. I have the two below by Dania Al-Jassim proudly displayed in my apartment.

 I loved this suzani print one below.

This modern Islamic one is very beautiful! I want to design an entire room from scratch just so it would fit in!

Metallic and sleek.

What about this round one? Not really my style but quite pretty!

How about this retro looking white cube with colored guns print on top? Lovely!

Or this modern Islamic acrylic and metal one? Mamma mia!

The dara’as sections were the busiest and I couldn’t snap a thing without it being pulled from my hands or being shoved aside. You’d think women had already prepared their dara’as by now!

Anyways those two caught my attention and were traffic free.

 Moving on to the home accessories, they had quite a selection!

Also I found a new card game by the name of Kuwait Deal on display. I think its similar to monopoly deal but with a Kuwaiti touch.

Check out 52 Degrees new extention which is finally open!

A long walkway with Zain’s branch, Alwatan Radio, and different stores on each side. Very nice!

Some shops are already open on the side like Reham Baluchi, Deer & Dear, and a furniture shop.

The furniture store.

At the end of the new section there is the iWish Dream factory, aka Kuwait’s first reality TV filming place debuting in October. Can’t wait to see it on TV :)

Last but not least the location of Trolley, Kuwait’s very quirky convenient store where local businesses can showcase their food creations and sell them in a supermarket like setting. I’m intrigued to be honest.

It was a very busy night yesterday at 52 Degrees. If you still looking for Ramadan items I  highly recommend you pass by and snatch whatever you can find, plus my book of course :)

52 Degrees is located in Al-Tilal Mall, Shuwaikh. For more information you can contact 52 Degrees on their website (link) facebook page (link) or follow them on Twitter (@52Degreeskw) or instagram (@52Degreeskw).
