India Today - - SIMPLY BANGALORE -

For all things psy­che­delic and trippy, head down to Psy­baba at Ashok Na­gar. This small shop is a repos­i­tory of vi­brant and colourful prod­ucts and ac­ces­sories. There are so many good­ies on of­fer here that they are stacked all the way up to the ceil­ing! Psy­baba is a haven for back­pack­ers, tourists and even lo­cals who are look­ing for some­thing dif­fer­ent. There are large over­sized mul­ti­coloured pants that are su­per com­fort­able, leather pouches, wal­lets and sev­eral kinds of junk jew­ellery like beaded bracelets and leather neck­pieces. This four year old store is set up to re­sem­ble a Goan flea mar­ket, and most of their mer­chan­dise is hand­made, per­son­ally crafted by the store owner, Sa­her and his wife, Tanya, in a small work­shop be­hind the store. Among the hot sell­ers are or­ganic per­fumes whose fra­grance closely matches many de­signer ones. A fun fea­ture of the store is the UV paint splat­ters on the ceil­ing. The neon black- light friendly colours glow in the dark and sim­i­lar paints are also used to de­sign the black tees that are re­tailed here.

Rs 20 on­wards for a pair of ear­rings
