Yesterday I went to this arts and crafts market in Delhi that I want to recommend. I have been to a bunch of government emporiums and all sorts of "markets" my driver insisted on taking me to. Yesterday though I struck gold. Called Dilli Haat this crafts bazaar run by the Tourism Board is a great place to buy presents and Indian nic-nacks for the house. I found Rajasthani patchwork, Orissa tribe necklaces, cotton dhuries, Chhattisgarh textiles, and of course the ever-pervasive pashmina. Yes you can probably find these things cheaper elsewhere, but it would involve you getting into a car, trekking half way through Rajasthan to some little village to do so. The prices are reasonable and haggling is recommended.
