Hauz Rani is a hidden gem for all things ceramic, be it crockery, flower pots or decorative knick-knacks—we’re giving you the low-down. Big plates, small plates, soup bowls and spoons, serving bowls—you’ll find them all in varying sizes and beautiful designs. If you’re looking for everyday crockery that looks more expensive than it actually is, you’re in the right place. We know somebody who bought eight large plates, eight small plates, eight bowls (two large, two medium, two small, and two tiny ones), eight serving bowls and eight cups for INR 5,500—an absolute steal.
You'll also be able to spot lots of home decor like showpieces, wall clocks, and mirrors that start at INR 50 (for small table pieces). However, this isn't an organised market, just a row of shops. A lot, in fact, hinges on whether you can bring your A-game when bargaining. Each store carries more or less the same thing, and don't forget to make sure that you check each piece before you buy for any defects—you don't want to end up home with faulty pieces.
Prices: Knick-knacks starting at INR 20 to 50; Mugs starting at INR 60; Platters starting at INR 300; Terracotta wall decor starting at INR 250; Vases starting at INR 200
