Each time I want to escape my little world to another place in our world I take my car and in 5 minutes I am in an Indian house and in an exotic world too !
The shop is located in an industrial area and you would never believe that behind this rather cold looking outside there is Ali Babas living room !
The first suspicions you get because it looks out of place is this beautiful wooden Elephant, at the entrance, just in front of a Garage which repair cars ! Not a very romantic place.
But as soon as you step inside you are in another world. The shop is presented like an Indian house, with soft music, a fountain at the entrance and in a corner seats and little tables where you can drink a special Indian tea.
You walk through the ailes, everything you see you can buy.
The shop is beautifully decorated and kept by volonteers, the benefit of the sales goes to an Indian village and finances Indian schools. Most of the items sold here are handmade.
a beautiful door
and the bedroom. The furniture is sold so quickly that almost every time when I go to this "house" the bedroom has changed.
A dining table with chairs
clothes, jewelry, books, CD's etc.
Little things ideal for a special gift
decorations for festivities
alleys to the different objects. They also have tea, spices, food, and a beauty shop.
fabrics, carpets and dishes are on the second floor
besides small statues there are also big once
This one was my favorite. As I often go there when the weather is grey just to lighten up my mood, this one made me always laugh. Last time it wasn't there anymore, somebody with a lot of space and money had bought it !
