Looking for souvenirs? Rare art? Beach dresses? Anything that screams Goa? Well, after many a shopping sprees, we've curated a list of stores that keep calling us back. Read on to find out our favourite fashion, home decor & other stores in North Goa. 

Rangeela

Gunpowder's equally popular neighbour Rangeela is as much of a visual treat as it a treasure hunt. It stocks up on apparel, decor, furniture, jewellery, bags and other knick-knacks. The way everything's found a spot in this Goan villa evokes a sense of awe and wonder. While you'll find a few curated brands here (think Baro, Chola The Label and more), a lot of finds are those that the owners have sourced from manufacturers across India and Indonesia. You're likely to find a lot of things between the INR 500 and INR 4,000. 

Timings: Everyday, 10 AM to 9.30 PM

Paper Boat Collective

Paperboat collective in Sangolda is easily one of Goa’s must-visit design stores. It houses a series of quirky textiles, jewellery, furniture, unique ceramics, as well as home decor, children’s clothing and toys and a wide array of lifestyle products and art pieces. One guiding principle that runs through all of the collection at Paperboat is the quality of the products as well as the faith in the individual behind the label. Each piece at the store brings with it its unique design aesthetics, and is curated by the owner-founder Bhagyashree Patwardhan from various India-based designers and smaller lesser-known studios doing stellar work.

No Nasties

A clothing store that boasts being 100% organic, 100% fair trade, No Nasties sells luxurious cotton garments for men, women as well as children. Guided by simplistic and sustainable design principles, the store stocks what is called ‘vegan clothing’.  Brainchild of combined skillsets of Apurv and Shweta, everything from packaging to the tags to the actual product is made from organic cotton with no genetically modified (GMO) seeds, no carcinogenic pesticides, no toxic dyes and no unfair business practices. Naturally, the price tag is slightly higher than your average stores, but keep in mind that with every purchase you’re contributing to strengthening the conscious fashion movement. 

Timings: Wednesday to Monday, 11 AM to 7 PM

Artjuna

A lifestyle store that’s housed in the same compound as the cafe, Artjuna is a boho shopper’s delight. What began as a workshop space for the owners — Moshe and Anastasia — where they could exhibit and sell their own leather works while also getting live feedback from customers has now transformed into this inviting Mediterranean cafe and boutique that sells boho-chic jewellery to clothing to various home decor items. We highly recommend their scarves!

Timings: Everyday, 7 AM to 10.30 PM

The Flame Store

Located inside a beautiful Goan house that serves as the quarters for the store in Candolim, The Flame Store is best known for its quirky, chic collection of clothes, jewellery, homeware — among these, their kaftans in particular are a crowd favourite. Most of their pieces are handcrafted and exquisitely designed. Organic and heritage fabrics come together to create beautiful breathable clothing that are both classy and timeless as well as perfectly suited for your #vacationgoals. You'll be happy to know that they also have a branch at Thalassa in Siolim. 

Timings: Saturdays, 10 AM to 9 PM; Other days 10 AM to 10 PM

Karma Collection

A home decor store that's one-of-its-kind, Karma Collection (located in Siolim), has it all — from furniture to cloth notepads, to wind chimes, statues, wall clocks, bags, etc. The store is over a decade old and puts emphasis on the quality and individuality of their products, so much so that you may not find replicas of many of them. Their collection of artefacts and wooden furniture, and their collection of tribal clothing and hand-embroidered bags are pretty popular. 

Timings: Mondays, 11 AM to 10 PM; Other days 11 AM to 8 PM

O.M.O.

Heard of On My Own? Yep, the cool peeps call it OMO. They've set up shop in Goa, making their way from the bustling streets of Bandra in Bombay. Brace yourself for some organic clothing, artsy handicrafts from NGOs, super quirky jewellery, and ceramic goodies that are basically drool-worthy. Oh, and the best part? This gem is tucked away in Fontainhas–a bit of a secret spot, but trust me, it's adorably snug. Looking to amp up your lifestyle game or spruce up your crib? OMO has your back! Psst, for those hunger pangs, you've gotta check out Mo's Cafe (previously known as Teal Cafe) right around the corner. Food and shopping galore, what more could you ask for, right?
