When it comes to the latest fashion styles and picking up the trendiest stuff for home décor, all within a budget, flea markets are the place you must head to.
Youngsters of the Millennium City, which is known for its cosmopolitan lifestyle and mall culture, too, prefer flea markets when it comes to maintaining style and comfort with élan.
Explore an endless range of casual wear, T-shirts, bags, footwear, jewellery and home décor items as the city hosts the first such market at DLF South Point Mall every second Saturday of the month.
There is still a month left for Diwali, but the market is abuzz to make your shopping a memorable experience.
One can check out a wide range of salwar-kameez in anarkali style with gotta-patti work. Gold-plated playing cards, too, are on display.
"These days, people are not just brand conscious, they are equally fascinated with the latest trends in clothes, accessories, etc. And what's better, if one gets what she wants at an affordable price," said Manvi Singh, an entrepreneur, who owns a fashion site and the brain behind the flea market.
Each time, new dealers would showcase their products, she added.
"Usually, men are not interested in shopping, so we decided to organise it at Mozart Café. Now, women can shop, while male members of their families sip coffee and relax," grinned Manvi.
The market is mainly for customers between the age group of 16 and 40 years.
"Here, you have a lot of choice and, hence, can easily get your favourite item. I am not brand conscious, but I need outfits that are trendy, stylish and comfortable. As long as I get it here, I don't think I need to go to a high-end shop," said Eshanka Wahi, a spot manager who was checking out goodies at the market.
