Firki – the flea market event was as quirky as the name, bringing with it the Goan beach-side shopping flavours. The event at Taj Banjara last Saturday was a good package of art, fashion and lifestyle.

Shopaholics Preeti and the gang of friends comprising Shashi and Sheetal lighted up the place with their conversations and bargains.
