Retail therapy is real. But what do you do when you run out of money and happiness at the same time? Although window shopping is always an option, everyone knows that the real moment of satisfaction comes only once you are at home admiring your new purchase. Keeping this in mind, let us re-route our maps to the Panjim Market and, more specifically, to these two little shops that stand out for selling all their items for ₹99 and ₹65 only!
You will not ever feel the need of returning an item to its rack after checking the price tag in these shops. You will find the most useful and unusual trinkets here that beautify your home and assist you in your everyday chores.
The fast-selling items will stay put for no one and so the question of stagnation does not occur. Along with the annual seasons and festivals, these shops also update their collection of commodities and always manage to stay up-to-date.
Chances are if you decide to revisit these shops to purchase something you left behind last week, you are most likely to never see it again. The shops are frequently visited, always crowded and their commodities sell out like hotcakes.
During the monsoons, you will find colourful umbrellas, raincoats that can transform into bags upon being folded and face shields to help you avoid all the water that splatters on your face whilst riding your bike behind a truck. Not forgetting that June also brings the reopening of schools and so fancy water bottles, compass boxes shaped like cars and ‘Marvel’ bags also join the force.
Diwali brings ornaments, lanterns and all things festive; and you are sure to see more than a bobble or two and tinsel hanging around Christmas. Everybody is familiar with the saying ‘It’s the little things’, and shops like these prove to us exactly what this means.
