Bapu Bazaar– The ultimate street shopping destination for localities as well as the tourist coming to Jaipur. The market is always brimming with people looking for beautiful Indian Wear, Jewellery, Home Decor, Jutties, Bags & Delicious Food. It’s so incredibly eclectic and you’re bound to find something interesting, even if you’re barely even looking.
While we were shopping in the Bapu Bazaar, we came across a lane hidden among the hustle & bustle of the streets named Pratap Market. It’s a single lane market right next to the water shed with few shops but you’ll be surprised with the amount of variety these shops have
Don’t believe us? Stick around as we give you a virtual tour.
What caught our attention was vibrant & beautiful skirts hanging on the walls. As we moved further, there was a fairly small shop with an elderly uncle welcoming us with a big smile. To be honest, we weren’t expecting much from the shop and then the surprise came in. He started showcasing us his collection & we wanted to grab each piece. The shop had a fair variety of Trendy Kurtis, Cotton Maxi Dresses, Palazzo, Chikankari Suits, Skirts and also Bedsheets. The prices were really affordable as compared to the shops in main market & quality was commendable.
Our next destination in the market was Bubber Handicraft House and we were taken back by how stunning everything in this handicraft heaven was. The first look itself of the shop is appealing with marvelous pieces perfect for every corner of your home. They have Antique Clocks, Candle Holders, Wall Decals, Showpieces, Table Lamps & small knick knacks for gifting. The store also does antique furniture & you can bring back home furniture of your choice handmade at budget prices. They also had an exquisite collection of metal bags. Yes, guys!! Metal bags are a reality.
The market has few more shops selling a fabulous range of Indian Wear and Bedsheets. Step away from the main market next time and head here for some unique home decor accessories & clothes that are guaranteed conversation-starters.
