Not just clothes and accessories, you can get a vast collection of bags which includes sling bags, travel bags, leather bags, handbags, pouches, clutches, jholas, tote bags and the list is never-ending. You might have to struggle a little, but you can get a good bag reasonably priced with good quality plus they are durable as well.
• Brush up your bargaining skills. Quote a price that is way less than what shopkeeper says, convince them with great conviction and the piece you are eyeing on will be yours in no time.
• The best time to visit Sarojini Nagar is on weekdays, especially during the afternoon.Weekends are totally packed.
• Keep an eye for the landmarks (be it hoardings or the fruit-juice walla!) so that you can return back.
• Don't forget to grab a bite while shopping. You can get moong ke pakode,momos and shakarkandi easily. For lunch, check out the eateries in the complex adjacent to the market or check out options in the market itself.
• The market is closed on Monday. However, if you go after lunchtime you can find many shops open and you might be able to get a good deal.
• Watch out for wear and tear, always point out the defect (may it be a small little hole or minimal stitching error) to the shopkeeper and use it to get an additional discount.
• There are limited options for Men’s but you can get graffiti t-shirts, boxers, shorts and backpacks.
• The sizing on the garments are almost never accurate, so the only way is either try above the existing clothes because you don’t have the luxury of changing rooms.You can also try taking one size bigger or convince the shopkeeper for return in case it doesn’t fit and the last option quick fix at the alteration shop.
So, be armed with bargaining skills and get ready to revamp your wardrobe.
