ART CRAFT & BEYOND
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.
