I painted my wall and furniture a gorgeous Prussian Blue.. And couldn’t wait to start bringing it all together, but within quite a tight budget.
I happened to come across the Banjara markets in Gurgaon… I usually am the kind to do a lot of research – it’s an obsessive level of Youtube-ing and checking Instagram – so I was fully ready for the kind of stuff that I was going to find there and the amount one needs to bargain.
My budget was tight, and this was more like a recce trip for me – so while I didn’t shop a lot – I really had my eyes open – eyeing whatever could go where ever in my home in the future.
While there are Banjara markets spread across Gurgaon, from what I have heard – I went to the one in Sector 56, Gurgaon – near IILM Gurgaon. It was a long trail of different dukaans, though with mostly the same items.
You will find a massive variety of carved wooden frames, in all sizes & rustic, antique lanterns and hanging / floor lamps – the best part being – that they paint it to your liking right then and there. I wanted a white big dome lamp for my living room – and got that for just Rs.600/- , while she quoted Rs.2000/- , so do bargain, and do it well!! Maybe also go through a few videos of the same on Youtube.
Ok, I do not know how to emphasize more on how I just love love loveeee ceramics! Bowls, plates, huge coffee mugs, planters, anything and everything! I love the patterns, the textures and the colors – and how there is just so much scope for mixing and matching – there is something or the other for everyone! You are going to find a ceramic heaven here – again, very reasonable (I got plant pots for Rs.50-70/- each, plates for Rs.50-90/- each – and that’s when I am quite terrible at bargaining) – just make sure you check each piece thoroughly – since some are chipped off from the corners or back. You may not find a set of 6 plates – all in absolutely the same shade, so what I would suggest is, don’t be rigid and play around a little – mix and match colors and sizes to make a funky set of your own!
On our way back, we also stopped by at the Ghitorni furniture market – this place has everything you need for your home – dining tables, beds, side tables, crockery tables, balcony/garden furniture, wrought iron furniture and swings, frames etc.
