The ‘I Love Indiranagar’ group’s bazaar this evening promises goodies, workshops and culinary treats
Made up of an active group of entrepreneurs who retail in the buzzing locale, I Love Indiranagar (ILI) is a go-local initiative started almost a year ago. And after the success of its first bazaar over Christmas, the group is back with the summer version. Look out for over 30 stalls and a quirky mix of workshops with the Mid Summer Night Bazaar at the Indiranagar Club this evening.
“We organise different events all through the year to keep the community engaged and draw in people from other parts of the city,” says Zarine Kharas, a member of ILI and partner at Daddy’s Deli-Red Fork. “The Christmas bazaar had a great response and so we decided to make it a biannual event.” This time, members are encouraged to invite participation from vendors outside Indiranagar as well. So, expect everything from apparel and home decor to baked goodies, jewellery and kids’ wear through the night.
Under the canopies
“We want to create a fun, interactive atmosphere of sharing,” says Kharas explaining, “It isn’t going to be one long row of stalls after another, but canopies spread across the space so people can linger and lounge.” The stalls range from home accessories and kitschy women’s clothing at Yellow Button Store, premium leather products at The Leather Boutique, garden accessories at Sunshine’s Garden Boutique, lighting and quirky furniture at The Purple Turtles, and statement pieces at The Conversation, to gluten-free baked goods by Jeeva George, saris at 100 Yards, organic vegetables at Green Life, baby’s clothing at Tiny Bee, home decor at Nihira, and silver and leather jewellery at Silver Nut Tree and Paaricha respectively.
Your little tots will have plenty to do at the kiddies corner and kids fashion show by Ism that creates ‘stylish ensembles’ for children.
We suggest you indulge in some wholesome grub when you take a shopping break. Try the Parsi specials at Daddy’s Deli, pastries and bakes at Lavonne, and tea-time goodies at Socie-tea, to treats from Soulful and Red Fork.
The bazaar also includes an eclectic mix of 20 to 30-minute workshops on everything from nail art and baking to yoga and cooking.
5.30 pm to 10.30 pm.
