If you’re looking for some décor for your new abode or if you’re updating, this is one place you can head over to and give it a shot! I am so happy to have discovered this market. People in Delhi/NCR are profound jugaadu! And this is one more jugaad that is equally amazing to Sarojini Nagar.

If you are in Delhi/NCR you must check out this flea market in Gurugram.

When I first heard of Banjara market, I didn’t think of it as a huge gem. Once you step down to this treasure you can find a plethora of furniture, décor, metal or brass décor pieces, handicraft, frames and so much more. What amazes more is the prices of all the stuff.

ABOUT ‘BANJARA’

The sense behind Banjara is that the people who sell there, are nomads basically. The market is run by nomadic Rajasthan people. This also is one of the biggest flea markets in Gurgaon/Gurugram. You can literally find a variety of antique furniture, mirrors, frames, idols, and festive décor for not only your home but office too.

Things to Know for Shopping in this Market

The trick to shopping here is that you don’t have any specific shops. You have to dig in the pile of things to find something that goes with your home’s vibes. Talking about vibes, the things that you get here can enhance any sort of décor. The market offers a huge variety of décor since there’s no particular type or category that you wish to shop. You can literally get a teeny-tiny jewelry box to a massive piece of furniture.

Coming to shopping in this market. Bargaining is the name of the game here. These people may quote extreme prices but do not hesitate to go as below as 200 or 150 for a décor piece quoted for 700-900. You’ll be amazed to know that you can actually bargain for 5000 rs furniture for 1000-2000 rs. There could be stuff that is priced high, but they surely are way less than what you might get in showrooms and malls. One thing that you might take care of while shopping in this market is to check for damages in the products. Since they’re just lying there in the pile, there’s a possibility of breakage or cracks.

From photo frames to classic art pieces, hanging wall art adds a personality to the home. Make sure the artwork you select is the right size and color for the wall you are decorating. And it needs to be hung on the wall very strategically where it gets the maximum attention. The size matters a lot. The artwork shouldn’t be too small to get overlooked by the adjacent furniture and not to be too big to look as it is all over the space.

Using large mirrors on the walls of your house reflects the room back and make it look more spacious, almost double the actual size. The placement of the mirror should be on the right wall to maximize its effect on the décor. The mirrors should reflect something striking like artwork or lighting objects.
