The street market never fails to impress. You’ll see lots of colour, embroidery, embellishments, accessories, earrings, and much more. Sprawled across the street, you’ll see bags and clothes with Kutch embroidery. Some stores will even have beautiful hand-embroidered bed covers, stoles and more.
You’ll also find lots and lots of junk jewellery, from German silver to Afghani styles—you’ll find a wide variety of earrings, rings, bangles, chokers, and more. The rings are a total steal, with the bands starting at INR 50 and the bigger, more intricate ones at around INR 150.
I ended up buying a handmade tote that had beautiful embroidery and mirror-work on it. And, when I found out that it took Pushpa didi, the owner of the shop where I bought it from, an entire week to finish it, I didn’t have the heart to bargain. But most sellers will be open to slashing the prices a bit if you try. I’m pretty sure I’ll be going back, not only for how pretty everything was, but also for how warm and endearing the vendors can be.
