I found this really cool store called Tibet over the weekend at the UWS. 80th and BWay. It was amazing! Crafts from Nepal and the region. I felt like I was back at the Delhi State Emporiums.
Almost every Indian state has an emporium in Delhi ...near Cannaught Place. Each state emporium show cases the handicrafts of the state. So it's a fantastic way to explore each state. At various times during the year, they have fairs and cultural performances in the emporiums. These are always fun....cos they're so unique.
Oh...there are also bangle makers outside the Rajasthan emporium!! They're very talented. They melt the bangle clay and mould one right there and then proceed to decorate it. It's fascinating.
Delhi also has other emporium style shopping places which make it a very good option for tourists. They dont have to visit every state...they can get everything they want in Delhi! ha! Other places I love: The Central Cottage Emporium, Dilli Haat, Khaadi Gramodyog.
So anyway, Tibet is a cool store. I picked up some stuff.....so a couple of my friends are gonna be receiving packages in the mail... :-)
Songs for the day: I'm back to U2 for a bit...."a woman needs a man...like a fish needs a bicycle"
