If you're looking for interesting gifts and souvenirs, rummage through the shelves of The Bombay Store for artifacts, clothes, ornaments, and trinkets, all made locally and sold at set prices. Farther south, but still in the Fort area, is Fab India, a popular store that sells a wide range of textiles, home furnishings, and modern Indian casualwear in vibrant prints and colors. It's a favorite with students, journalists, and NGO workers. For slightly more expensive gifts head to Contemporary Arts & Crafts, a shop set in an old bungalow on exclusive Nepean Sea Road, selling knickknacks and home essentials, from brocade cushions to bedspreads, candle stands, and lamp shades. Most items are designed for Western sensibilities but with strong local flourishes.
