ART CRAFT & BE­YOND

India Today - - SIMPLY PUNJABI - by Re­wati Rau

This 28 room bun­ga­low in a nar­row Am­rit­sar street urges you to pause and take notice. Look in and ex­pect to be drawn by the arte­facts, art­fully scat­tered all around. Three com­modi­ous rooms here are stacked with a mix of small and big col­lectibles from In­dia and abroad. An avid trav­eller with an eye for vin­tage items, Arad­hana Mehra started Art Craft and Be­yond last year. Here, you could pick up a mask from In­done­sia, tiny plates from Tur­key, ce­ram­ics from Thai­land, ma­hogany wooden tables from Java, or a paint­ing from Hong Kong. Mehra has also stocked some eth­nic glass vases, bath­room sets and lamps from Agra and an­tique fur­ni­ture from Ra­jasthan. She brings in new stocks ev­ery 15 days. What's unique about her store is the con­ve­nient op­tion of pay­ing in in­stall­ments. " When peo­ple come to pay their in­stall­ment, they spot new items and are tempted to buy more stuff, so it works for me," she says.
