Often, when the weather is so cold and rainy I go to the Indian Shop "Mala India" we have here in Waterloo. All items sold there are for the benefice for street children and orphans in India.

It is a wonderful place to chill out and doesn't really look like a shop but rather like a private house.

The entrance doesn't really show the treasures which are behind this door.

First you see this beautiful well. Indian soft music fills the rooms. Behind the well there is a corner with little tables and chairs where you can have a cup of tea for free. Friendly people are sitting there chatting together.

This photo shows the entrance to the living room

From the library a staircase leads to the second floor

Where a rikshaw is hanging on the ceiling.

I did my little tour cheering me up and then returned back home

Do not judge the shop by its door :) Glad you showed us in, I wouldnt psy much interest if I just saw the door. Lots of interesting stuff.

What a wonderful place, Gattina! Great idea to sell articles in order to support streetchildren! Is it something like Oxfam?
Have a great week!

Free tea! another reason to visit the shop, although I don't think you need a reason to go there.

Such an attractive store. Looks like it has a lot of character. :)
