my products are now available at mora taara






yes thats right, find all these and more at mora taara's brand new outlet in galaxy mall gurgaon!!

i am soo excited and hope to have a great response!!
so next time you find yourselves in this part of the world you will drop in won't you?

mora taara:store profile

i am sure most of you know about mora taara, the eclectic store on pedder road in mumbai....what you may not know is that the store owner anuradha has recently opened her second store in galaxy mall (nr. 32nd milestone) gurgaon, NCR!!!!



 here's what anuradha has to say about the store and how it was born :)

"The store essentially combines my two great loves - travelling and shopping. 
Having a store full of beautiful things is something I have always wanted - ever since I was five - so the store was kind of inevitable. Before starting the store in 2005,  I was a journalist of 10 years.  Two of those years I was with a newspaper in Bangkok and I travelled a lot in South East Asia then. So that was natural place for me to start sourcing.  The emphasis on warm atmosphere, great service and fabulous hand-picked products from all over the world.  We do a lot of our own designing now that is manufactured in India. We have two stores now - on Peddar Road, Mumbai  (022-65754822)and in Galaxy Hotel, Gurgaon (0124-4278392).  Next is the online store - our website will be up in the next 2 months"

i am waiting for the online store...so exciting to find all the beautiful products without having to step out of your house!! 


the fabulous store is named after anuradha's grand mother "tara"...mora taara essentially means my star...i think it is a beautiful name

thank you anuradha for sharing your story and these lovely pictures from the store!!

nilaya:bandhej:pune

during one of my visits to senapati bapat road recently i chanced upon this beautiful store nilaya. i am sure most of you know about it already.
it is a beautiful store located opposite the audi showroom on senapati bapat road  and i fell in love with it as i entered. it is soo exciting to get to know about a place just by chance....without anyone telling you about it...adds to the whole fun of it doesn't it?
i was lucky i met the owner aarti and got chatting with her about the store. the store largely stocks bandhej garments (i talked about bandhej here) and furnishings, accessories and artifacts from all over. a must visit if you find yourselves in pune!

the store has a beautiful court yard filled with plants, bells, vintage garden furniture...so beautiful that i could picture a french cafe here!






the store regularly hosts exhibitions and workshops on their premises.



gorgeous i say! i am thankful to aarti who most graciously let me click away in her store...

do check it out!
