This week, we help you find trendy flat slippers at affordable prices, winter clothes in summer and essential oils at pocket-friendly rates.

Hi, I’m Rajeshwari and Iive in South Delhi. I want to know where can I get essential oils at a reasonable cost. I have read a lot about the benefits of oils for various things.

If you want to purchase essential oils at a reasonable price, do visit Chandni Chowk. Shop number 467 on the Chandni Chowk Main Road sells essential oils of different types and flavours for Rs 200 onwards. You can get oils for bodyaches, special bath oils and scented oils here. Another place to check out is Jain Perfurmers and Arihant Perfumes in Janpath Market. Here, you are likely to get an interesting range of oils. To get there from South Delhi, get on the Violet Line of the Delhi Metro and head to the Rajiv Chowk Metro station. Janpath is at a walking distance from this station. To go to Chandni Chowk, you can change to the Yellow Line going towards Delhi University.

Hi, I need to go for an official trip to a foreign destination where the temperature is below zero degrees. Please help me find out places in the city where I can buy winter clothes in this weather, as I am having a tough time looking for them.

Hi Dharmesh. Winter clothes are readily available in the city, even in this weather. For some authentic Himachali woolen clothes, head to the Himachal Pradesh Emporium at Baba Kharak Singh Marg in Connaught Place. Here, you can buy shawls and suit pieces, which are available in different colours starting from the range of Rs 1,000 onwards. For menswear, walk to the first level of the Emporium to find some exclusive variety of woollen jackets and blazers, which are available at a price of Rs 1,500 onwards. You can also go to the Seelampur Main market, which is just adjacent to the Seelampur Metro station. The market offers a huge variety of winter wear like sweaters, stoles, suit pieces and much more. You can purchase a woolen jacket or a blazer for anything between Rs 500 to Rs 1,600. Since it is almost a wholesale market, don’t forget to bargain when there. Our suggestion is that you should take care of your valuables while you are there.

Hi, I have just moved to Delhi. Could you please tell me where I can find a nice pair of strappy flat shoes for pocket-friendly prices?

Hi Donna, strappy flat shoes are really in vogue these days. So, they are easily available at all flea markets in the city. Visit Janpath Market, where you can find strappy sandals for anything between Rs 200 to Rs 400. Even Kala Niketan at Janpath street has a good collection of flats. You can even head to Lajpat Nagar Central market, where you can get a pair of chappals for Rs 250 onwards. A vast variety of flat chappals is also offered at the Sarojini Nagar Market. Along with Bata and other branded showrooms, there are also some street kiosks that sell slippers in different colours and patterns at Rs 100 onwards.
