Pune’s street shopping game may not be grade A, but look hard enough and you’ll spot some cool things worth adding to your wardrobe. We meandered around Koregaon Park and found some things worth buying in lane one and two.
Shoes, Bags, Jewellery: Street Shop In Koregaon Park’s Lane 1 & 2
In red, pink, blue, black, yellow and orange, you can choose from a range of different patterns. Some have floral prints on the straps, while others have geometric motifs. For INR 150 onward, you can score pretty kolhapuris that’ll look great with a pair of jeans and a tee or on ethnic wear.
Is your Instagram feed flooded with celebrities and influencers wearing juttis. If the brands they wear are way out of your budget, shop from the street. With pretty embroideries and edges full of ghunghroos, for INR 250, these juttis are a steal!
Pretty jhumkas, colourful handspun earrings, acrylic ones and more, you can buy all for only INR 50. Of course, use your bargaining skills if you’re buying more than one. This stall also has studs for those who don’t like anything dangling off their ears. But we’re in love with the large collection of jhumkas here.
Rings & Anklets
Dress your hands and feet with cute rings and anklets. Rings, big and small either studded with fake pearls and stones start at INR 50. You can also get anklets with beads and charms starting at INR 100.
Bags & Purses
Decked with sequences, patchwork and embroidery, the bags and wallets you find are like the ones you’ll find in handicraft emporiums. They have elephant prints, bright coloured embroidery work and start at INR 150. We loved the printed jholas here.
