So, I went to Goa recently and yes, I could not stay without paying a visit to the infamous Anjuna Flea Market, which is set up every Wednesday.

Its as hot as a furnace and me and Sneha (my bargaining guru) go from shop to shop, fiddling, amazed at a few pieces and dismissing the others as “you can get that in Sarojini”.

I loved how the Bollywood influence has creeped up into market here. With “Indianized cropped tops” to jholas to Bollywood printed bags.

Of stars and twinkles. Crafts from Bastar to Kashmir, you get everything here.

I fell in love with the crafted wooden expressions and arabian lanterns.

BUT for me the best part was definitely the beads, the jewels, the metals. Each unique and beautiful.

Among my other top picks were the neon tanks, the vintage bikinis and beautiful flower crowns ( hand made by thai tourists)

But the highlight of my day was this little sweetheart we met at the beach.

If you’re in Goa make it a point to hit the flea market on wednesday! It’s worth every penny.
