India Today - - SIMPLY GUJARATI -

Sit­u­ated in a quaint lit­tle cor­ner at Shan­ti­dasan so­ci­ety, Nimbu Mirchi was set up keep­ing in mind the bud­ding trend of shop­pers in the city who ap­pre­ci­ate gen­uine In­dian de­signs. Ac­quir­ing pieces from all over the coun­try fo­cus­ing on the kitsch el­e­ment, about 25 de­sign­ers’ cre­ations are stocked at the flag­ship store cur­rently. Noth­ing about this place is un­der­stated. This fash­ion and home ac­ces­sories store takes plea­sure in its abun­dant use of colours— a fact that is ev­i­dent in their bright logo and painted ceil­ing fan at the en­trance. Their fash­ion col­lec­tion in­cludes some beau­ti­ful bidri, lac­quer and pa­per jew­ellery. Pen drives in the wack­i­est de­signs or badges with mes­sages, folk art on lamps by Warmly De­signs, Jhola co. bags with typ­i­cal In­dian mo­tifs like the auto rick­shaw or sadhu, or­ganic soaps by Neev, gar­den ac­ces­sories and lanterns all strug­gle for space here on the shelves here. T- shirts with a take on Star­bucks have Ramu Kaka pour­ing chai in place of the twin- tailed mer­maid or a car­i­ca­ture of Laloo Prasad Ya­dav point­ing at you say­ing in his typ­i­cal style ‘ Bud­bakk’. Don’t miss their spe­cial trib­ute to Ra­jesh Khanna— a lim­ited edition col­lec­tion of Kaka’s clas­sic film coast­ers. WHERE Road No 10, Ban­jara Hills COST Rs 250 to Rs 5,000 TEL 079 40009215.

USP One of the best places in the city to pick up quirky items at rea­son­able prices
