  1. I am delighted to be your first follower. I come to Delhi once or twice a year to select a container of Indian goods for my shop. 7sisterstrading.com I prefer the anitques or at least old things. I usually go to a warehouse where things are collected. Possibly my suppplier goes to your market to collect pieces to fix up.

    What I cannot find and I thought there was one in Delhi, is a museum of old Indian furniture. I would like to know te name and some of the uses of old objects that are no longer used. Of course i will be interested any other secret finds you might like to post. I have found a few secret sources myself. Yours Tekla
