Jaisalmer Zilla Khadi Gramoday Parishad: "A touch of gold in your satchet" Jaisalmer Shopping Tip by satchmo1963

Jaisalmer Shopping: 23 reviews and 34 photos

A large outlet, with portraits of Gandhiji, J P, Ambedkar etc adorning the walls, run by the local handicrafts cooperative society. Also adorning the walls are exquisite hand-woven stoles, wall hangings, blankets etc.

What to buy: A must-buy at this outlet are gift items made of sandstone, the same raw material that went into the making of Jaisalmer Fort. You may opt either for hand-polished or machine polished items from this range.

My particular favourite was a set of six liqueur glasses that I pounced on.

The store also offers round-the-year rebates on woven items.

What to pay: Prices are fixed. But rebates on specific items are offered, which are boldly announced in all parts of the shop
