Travel: Delhi Find

Posted by on

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.
