Mumbai Shopping Diary-Mangaldas Market-Chapter 6

Hello! didi..........batao na kya chahiye................apne boutique ke liye khareed na hai? ek se badh kar ek party wear design hai hamare paas..........ek baar catalogue toh dekho, saare  designers yehi se maal utahte hain.(Hello sister,say na what you want ,want to buy for your boutique, we have some amazing partywear,have a look at the catalogue,all designers source from here only)  Really!!! ofcourse,  the shopkeeper informs me,now what really attracted me towards his small shop in the first place  was  this really beautifull!!! purple color net saree.I instantly fell in love with this  gorgeous beauty and with a throbbing heart request for the price.

Being an Indian, of course I love sarees and it is my passion  to collect sarees from different Indian states whether its  kantha,bandhani,patola,banarasi,kanjivaram,upada,ikkat,phulkari........the list is endless.So I have been looking out for a net saree for quite some time, one glance and I know for sure this is the one for me.My heart is racing because in my mind  I have already  decided that I want it, and once I really like   something then my dreams are dominated with the images of the said.So I am just hoping that its in my budget,fingers crossed  and voilaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa, its only for Rs 4000........ I am really happyyyyy but without showing too much excitement, I try to haggle and the best price that he can offer me is Rs what do I do, of course I buy it,sillies!!!

After a  successful purchase at a very reasonable price, I am very excited because I know that at a branded showroom the same would cost me not less than Rs 8000 or more. Next on my agenda is to buy fabric for myself, because my cousin's wedding is coming up and I want to present myself in best of my fineries, I come across this stall which has some of the most beautiful and colorful fabrics chanderi, brocade, satins, animal prints,georgette,crepe........breadthtaking...... you name it and its here and the prices are to die for.I bought brocade in  hot pink color at Rs 350 per meter and animal print very much in vogue at Rs 120 per meter.As i move foward i come across this shop which sells fabric for men's sherwani, prices start from Rs 300 to Rs 900 per meter.So all you grooms head towards mangaldas market, you will be amazed by the variety stocked here.

You can also buy fabric for suiting and shirting from this market at amazing prices.I bought blazer fabric  for myself in purple and mint green color at Rs 250 per meter,yipeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! You can also buy colorful dupattas, scarves,imitation jewellery,soft toys, crockery, bed covers, fabric of all kinds and all seasons.Its an amazing place to be in.You can build your complete wedding trousseau here. For all the girls you can buy fabric for your pencil skirts, waist coats, blazers,maxi dresses,salwar suits at very reasonable prices!!!
