Spring Bazaar 2013 in your city

Here’s an exciting announcement by one of our valued readers Momi Mukherjee the founder of Devi. Check out the surprises in store for all you shopohlics in the city on 13th March!!

Whoever said that women cannot collaborate amongst themselves ought to attend SPRING BAZAAR 2013!!!

It happens to be a brainwave while long lost friends met after years and giggled over a cuppa and exchanged notes on the better halves, the next generation, corporate life and a paradigm shift in life.

The urge to make our tiny yet tremendous effort to be our own masters,  six degrees of separation from like minded people and not to forget the shared enthusiasm brought us entrepreuners together to start SPRING BAZAAR………and while these are baby steps, the idea is to keep this going throughout the year and involve more women entrepreneurs.

The common thread that binded us were the years of corporate experience, travel, books and the need to do something of our own…..with every drop of our passion, creativity, aesthetic sense and a need to be a runaway entrepreuner.

The labels that have come together this startup year are :

  1. Devi
  2. Taraa
  3. Aviksha
  4. Koonik
  5. Half 2 Five
  6. Saundhi Mitti
  7. Pepper Corns
  8. & Things Like That
  9. Pure Ghee Designs
  10. Home Is Where The Art Is
