Sadar Bazaar: "Desert treasures" Barmer Shopping Tip by lynnehamman

Barmer Shopping: 1 reviews and 1 photos


There are many stalls,and there is the Sadar market.
Tiny shops lining the narrow lanes of the colorful bazaar are a good place to pick up some treasures-beautifully made and reasonably priced.

One can actually watch the artisans and craftsmen at work.The market is always very busy-
I always prefer to buy directly from the markets. The prices are so reasonable that bargaining is not an issue.For the craftsmen, artisans and villagers in this remote little town, life is tough, and the work that is put into the creation of these wonderful products should be suitably rewarded, in my opinion.

What to buy: Fabric
Embroidered bags
Cushion covers
Traditional clothing (some with mirror - work embroidery)
Hand woven carpets

Theme: Local Craft

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
