Delhi is a shoppers haven, there are enough choice here to suit everyones pocket. A walk along the streets and flea markets of Delhi can give you many home decor options even within a tight budget. From the streets of Old Delhi to refurbished vintage furniture in Amar Colony be ready to be blow away by the options Delhi can offer. Here is my list of places to visit in Delhi for home decor shopping
Vintage furniture shopping in Amar colony
Hidden away within the alleyways of Amar Colony this quaint market place is full of vendors selling refurbished, colonial vintage wooden furniture. This market is a visual treat and here you can find beautifully carved wooden trays, glass and tile inlayed dressers or polished/painted side racks. From bookshelves, cabinets, chairs, dining tables, lampshades, stools to rocking chairs they have everything to offer.
Pro tip: Do not forget your bargaining skills while here, as discounts are based on your haggling powers.
