This place, buzzing with creativity, is located in a quiet by-lane in Indiranagar. And if you have been through my blog, you'll know that I love it! They have products from a whole lot of artists from all over India. The result is a pretty-to-look-at place with beautiful, inspiring and creative works of art.

The fun store signage!

You enter the store and you get to see this gorgeous chandelier.

Funky earrings anyone?

Cute little ceramic oil bottles with their own cork stoppers.

The good 'ol chai ki glassy as tea light candle holders.

Some more light love - the colours are so attractive.

Aren't these cycles adorable?? A collectors dream come true!

This wall art is for all Tintin lovers, including me.

How about this quirky hook hangar? Reminds me of trucks on the state highway.

Cushions - A perfect blend of modern and traditional.

A commode ashtray. Can it get weirder than this?

Cute metal hippo book ends and a bright and yellow mini Ganesha.

Purses, clutches and wallets in all sites and colours.
