Ten-Second Takeaway

We stumbled across Art Station, a shop in Four Bungalows Chowk, and with its glitters, paints, brushes and everything crafty on sale, it’s every stationery-lover’s personal heaven.

All That Glitters

Easy to miss, Art Station stands right at the corner of Four Bungalows Chowk in Andheri West. However, once we entered the store we were transported to a wonderland of colourful papers, pens, paints and stickers. On the right side, the wall is decorated with pop-art posters and has stacks paint from Camlin, Windsor and Newton, Liquitex and Pebeo, as well as other brands.

The back wall is the paper wall – which we immediately splurged on. We found gorgeous, glossy and funky printed sheets, as well as a whole section just for gift-wrapping paper. The small sheets were for INR 10, and the bigger ones for INR 15 {yes, that cheap}. From white, starry and transparent sheets to Aztec and floral designs, we picked up a great variety.

They also have adult colouring books, paints brushes {in all shapes and sizes}, charcoal pencils, and soft pastels, with a section purely dedicated to acrylics. The front of the shop has stickers, beads and canvas rolls, alongside a tiny revolving stand displaying cute diaries. They also have an eclectic collection of tracing paper from Queen Victoria to the world map.

What We Love

The decor, the variety, and of course, the affordable prices. We bought four different prints {including polka dots, butterflies and hearts}, colourful ribbons and 3D heart stickers with a wooden texture.

#LBBTip: They also have DIY kits for cards and bags priced at INR 150.
