Handicrafts exhibition

I love all kind of crafts exhibitions, especially for the colorful displays and some unexpected surprises you bounce on sometimes. I also love bargaining with the vendors - Thats the best part of shopping in India?
Some pics that I clicked at 'Sampoorn' - a handicrafts exhibition held in Bangalore.



Colorful vases - My fav is the brown one in the background (behind the camel pic vase)

"Juti's" in all sizes, patterns & designs


I love these colorful woven baskets - especially the wooden parrot handles on top of the lids.


Ceramic stuff - I love the colors and the variety here. I have my eyes on the kids tea set which is to the bottom right side of this pic.

Copper handmade bells in different sizes
