Flea Markets in India are referred as 'Chor Bazaar'. All metro cities have their own set of Chor Bazaar - Mumbai and Delhi have them named so, whereas other cities if not called Chor Bazaar are similar in context. They are typically known for their randomness - as in you get everything second hand or stolen. Some shopkeepers actually sell new goods in garb of antiques by creating layers of dust, rust or rugged look. The main philosophy behind them is - to each to its own. You will find a lot of trash in there - but they say - one man's trash is another man's treasure.
Today I show you glimpses of Chor Bazaar of Mumbai. For any lay man they are just pieces of trash, but you need to have an eye for that perfect piece for that corner in your house. All online blogs are full of shopping victories of people from such flea markets. If you think about it your most favorite piece would be bought from some flea corner in a hidden nook which you suddenly discovered. You knew you wanted it 'no matter what' and of course it turned out to be a LOOT - pun intended. Something to carry your shopping from Chor Bazaar.. The luggage bags and boxes are so classy so one can only imagine the treasure inside...
