Shopping on a low budget calls for markets where you can head for some guilt-free street shopping. When it comes to daily wear, we’ve already mentioned Sarojini and Lajpat, but these stores at Rajouri Garden are also worth checking out. Gandhi Nagar (which is also Asia’s largest textile market) is where you can find fabrics as well as ready-made clothes for INR 20 (It’s really that cheap). If you’re on the hunt for inexpensive fabrics that you can turn into gorgeous dresses, these cheap cloth markets will be of great service. From cotton and silk to net and georgette, you’ll find them all here. Noida has these Sarojini-like stores in Atta market where you can find dresses and tops for as low as INR 180.
Liberty Village in Saket is a cool flea market where you can buy trendy clothes, shoes, bags, stationery and essence oils gathered from nine designers/vendors. There is also a thrift shop in Lajpat Nagar which sells clothes, home decor items, shoes, jewellery and artifacts which are all either factory seconds or donations (and the money you spend here will go for charity).
Men, SN has these stalls and shops where you can score fantastic, cheap clothes! You can also check out these stores in Katra Neel where you can score cheap quality fabrics and get them stitched too!
If shoe-shopping is your primary agenda, you’ll find some gorgeous pairs at these nine markets. There are also a few shops in Paharganj where you can buy cheap leather bags, shoes and second hand books. If you’re a jewellery junkie, Janpath as well as this Tibetan market nearby is worth a visit. The latter also sells myriad handicraft and decor items.
