Ten Second Takeaway

My Native Store is an online shopping portal for regional food and handicrafts, sourced from across the country.

A surprising treat

When we first heard about My Native Store we weren’t sure what to expect. The information, ‘buy your regional products here’, seemed scarce and limited. So we were pleasantly surprised once we checked out their website.

You can shop for spices, handicrafts, ethnic wear, snacks, pickles and other essentials {a small section}. The major areas sourced from are Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Rajasthan and the north-east.

Not every state section has every item available. For example, Rajasthan and the north-east only have handicrafts, while the Kerala section only offers food items {the pickles, spices and snacks}.

A variety of goods

While browsing through their platform without a goal in mind, we found a delightful little Camel Design Salt and Pepper Dispenser and a colourful Designer Wooden Elephant Stool from Rajasthan. We could easily see both items in our home, and neither would put too much of a dent in our pocket.

In the Kerala section we found great deals on spice and pickle combos {six packs of spice packets came in at under INR 200}, a fine, but small, collection of silk and cotton saris in the Tamil Nadu ethnic wear section, and an adorable set of bamboo cups {under INR 1,000} from the north-east handicrafts page.

 Flavours of home, online

If you’re not from Delhi and are missing a piece, or flavour, of home, then you should take some time out to browse My Native Store online and see if there is anything for you. Even if you’ve been born and brought up here and are looking to add some colour to your room, wardrobe or recipes, then give their website a quick visit. You too might be pleasantly surprised.

Price: Prices vary, you can shop online here.
