All You Need to Know About Shopping in Galleria, Powai

Shopping is so therapeutic that its the only therapy that I believe is worth paying for...and what's more you end up with lust-worthy goodies. One day tired after finishing a lengthy write-up, on a whim, I took off to Galleria market located in Powai, Mumbai to indulge in some retail therapy. I did not have a definitive shopping list with me nor enough money ( thanks to the recent demonetization of INR 500 & 1000 notes) !!! But on such whimsical days are the best things found. So what all did I find at Powai's shopping heaven? Read on to find out!!!

I entered through a maze of retail shops selling almost everything under the dome ceiling-ed market. Let's start with clothes and accessories. I went through couple of shops to find stylish cotton tops in Indian prints selling at INR 150, trendy casual tops selling at INR 300 and dresses- both short and full length with prices starting at INR 500.

A boutique named "Jackpot" had some beautiful full length dresses in vibrant hues and Indian prints on could I resist? I ended up picking a dress in yellow at just INR 500.

There is lot to choose from in western wear too- graphic t-shirts, palazzo pants, wrap around skirts and more.

Happy shoppers at Galleria, Powai.

Accessories like hair clips and hair bands start at INR 50 and are quiet trendy for everyday wear. I also spotted some beautiful digital print cloth bags, colorful traditional stoles, leather bags and cute sling bags.

For book enthusiasts, there is a small shop opposite "Jackpot" boutique that sells books at discounted prices. One can also read books in circulation like a library...nice :)

Gadget lovers can indulge in some heavy duty shopping at a store named "Abracadabra" electronic shoppe.

There are a couple of good jewellery shops too that sell Indian ethnic jewellery in gold and silver, diamond jewellery and more! I found some beautiful gold-plated and silver statues and frames of Indian deities in one such jewellery store.

If all the shopping makes you hungry, head one level up to indulge in a variety of foods- biryani and tikkas at Kareem's, Lebanese wraps and salads at mm! maroosh or some hot paranthas. "Juicy" food corner offers lot of delectable Indian dishes too!

Step into "Pranaa" a holistic wellness center if you wanna get pampered some more.

There are a couple of opticians that come handy if you decide about buying new sunglasses or making contact lenses/ glasses. I also spotted ample ATMs, a flower shop- Ferns N Petals and a ice cream shop that lured me with a sign that read "Pani Puri Sorbet".

Once you decide enough shopping has been done for the day or when your credit card cries out aloud...whichever happens first, sit back at "Hoppipola" a trendy bar and check your loot with pride and glasses of cold beer. Leave the modesty for another day :D
