This quaint little vintage shop in Dimapur, Nagaland has our hearts with its cute AF vintage and upcycled clothes, and artsy collectibles.
Carol Humtsoe is a small town girl from Nagaland, who is the first Naga girl to have been signed by Elite Model Management. She started her modeling career when she was just 16 and worked herself up to where she is now- walking for Wills Lifestyle, Lakme Fashion Week and even appearing in commercials by Wong Kar Wai, Yamaha, Airtel, and others. She came up with 'Carol's Shop and Tea Room' by putting together two of her most favorite things- vintage and upcycled clothes, and keepsakes from her travels. We say it is a must visit if you are in Dimapur, Nagaland - it's a small, minimally decorated store room amidst the paddy fields.
Even if you aren't visiting, do not worry, she also sells extensively on Instagram. If you're wondering what to buy, the things you can find on sale in Carol's Shop and Tea Room are many and varied- altered and upcycled clothes, vintage dresses, jewelry, herbal teas, incense, singing bowls, lamps, oils, tea coasters, some furniture Carol got made, and some other collectibles and souvenirs that have been picked up by Carol herself from her travels. There's also a small dedicated space with bamboo walls for about 4-5 people to sit. Want to order? Head over to her Instagram
