We recently visited the furniture market in Amar Colony, which is the place to check out if you’ve got space in your house for colonial style furniture, distressed chalk paint furniture, and statement mirror frames. Better yet, if you’re looking for things more on the unique side, something you know you won’t find a copy of in your friend’s house, something that has a story {cue Phoebe from the Pottery Barn Friends episode!}, look no further.

The only thing is you need a little bit of patience and an observant eye. Possess neither of those qualities? We can help. Here are some really cool things we found here that we can’t wait to add to our own homes

Rocking Ganesha Showpiece


If you love yourself some quirk, this is the perfect way to add some to your home, without bearing mom’s disapproving look.

Price: INR 1,000 {approx.}



This charkha is about 70-80 years old! There was another slightly more expensive variant in the market too with a slightly more elaborate design.

Price: INR 6,000

Four Poster Bed With Carved Frame


Built and carved in Calcutta about a 100 years ago, this beautiful four-poster bed is at the top of our wishlist.

Price: INR 20,000

Vintage Gramophone


We were told that this vintage gramophone is in working condition. While we can’t defend the claim, this would happily find a place in our living room.

Price: INR 3,000

Vintage Brass Telephone


Hello. Is it a vintage brass phone you’re looking for?

Price: INR 2,500

Train Station Clocks


Vintage-looking but not truly vintage, these clocks will add an old-school look to your home.

Price: INR 800 – 1,750

Coloured Glass Lamps


Place one of these lamps in a colour of your choice to give your living room a regal feel.

Price: INR 2,000

Cup & Saucer Set


These will make your evening tea drinking sessions Instagram-worthy for sure!

Price: On request

Old-School Money Box


A popular item among kids back in the day, you place a coin in the joker’s hand and pull a lever at the back, which hurls the coin into the joker’s mouth and into its stomach. So cool!

Price: INR 4,000

Miniature Boat


We love the small size and intricate detailing of this boat.

Price: INR 1,000

Lock & Key


They have a few variants of these hard-to-open locks. More hard-to-open than regular locks? Yep, because they open with a set of four keys. FOUR.

Price: INR 450-550

Dead Man Ash Tray


This is one dark ashtray.

Price: INR 1,200

Marine Telescope


We don’t know how you can possibly make use of this {aside from maybe spying on your neighbours?}, but this makes for one cool collector’s item.

Price: INR 2,200

Old Monk Bottle Holder


For the next time you are throwing a royal-themed house-party!
