#MumbaiList: Best Places To Shop For Lights, Diyas & Decorations This Diwali



Amongst all the things that tie Mumbai together, Diwali is one. Eeryone from the who’s and who’s of the city to the local kirana shop owner to the small tapriwala, light up their entrance with a string of lights. So this year we bring you some hotspots for shopping or Diwali decorations.

Part of Kishor Biyani’s future group, this chain of stores are spread in several parts of the city. One of my colleagues, who resides in Thane said that” they have an awesome collection of candles and candle stands” So guys what you waiting for, find a Hometown closest to you and get those beautiful candles right away.

Warden Stores at Kemps Corner
For the dwellers of South Mumbai, this little store at Kemps corner is a jackpot. They have everything from paper lanterns big and small, various types of lights to shine the windows, torans, and various stickers wishing happy Diwali and more. These items are not only bright and pleasing to look at but are also extremely reasonable. Another thing you are sure to find there is Rangoli stencils of different designs. So all you guys out there who cannot create he magic of colours, here is your trick to create awesome designs.

Cheap Jack in Bandra
This is the most happening suburb of Mumbai. On Hill Road, in Bandra West there is a tiny little store called Cheap Jack which sells beautiful stuff. Famous for the different types and kinds of buttons, this shop houses a lot of decoration items for all festivals. Also known as the mini shopping mall, this place has some amazing stuff when it comes to lanterns, diyas, lights, candle stands, colours, rangolis etc. I am sure you don’t mind a little stroll in this cute little store to sparkle up your home this Diwali.  I strongly recommend a visit here.

The Crawford Market Search
If you are the kind of a person who likes to check out a lot of variety before zeroing down on the final choice, then this place is for you. This famous market in Mumbai has lots of and lots of stores selling Diwali decorations.  Diverse choices, bargaining shopkeepers and a chance to feel the spirit of the festival before it even begins, is what this place offers. Before you plan your day to set out in the direct of this market, here is a tip:- Visit it between 11.00am to 1.00 am in the morning or after 6.00 pm in the evening to get less rush. Happy Shopping!

The Station Lanes
Dadar (Western Side) and Kurla (Central Side), are the two most crowded stations of Mumbai. The lanes leading to these stations have lots of stores offering some really amazing and cheap décor material. You can see kandils, diyas, candles, rangoli colours, incense sticks and many new things on the shelves. Come festive season and these shops are packed with people buying decorations. Lower Parel station is another option for those looking to buy some fashionable décor.

Apart from these funky roadside options, there are also a few “ heavy on the pocket “ options such as The Bombay Store, a zillion online stores, Home furnishings sections in malls such as Shoppers and Westside etc which will also have a lot of decorative item collections. But when you can get really cool stuff and experience in little, why spend more.

Happy Diwali Mumbai!
(Light, Shine, Share, Enjoy and Spread Smiles)
