Flea Markets in India

The people in India love to dress up for any occasion, even if it means going to the school to pick up your kid. You will find the hippest and the most traditional attires being worn in the same household. The current generation is brand conscious yet values money. The solution to this paradox lies in the Indian flea markets. These popular flea markets in India sell the most stylish and comfortable clothes and casuals that are preferred by this generation. You can find all youngsters thronging these street markets of India, striking a good deal with the salespersons and walking off with their catch!

A thumb rule that every youngster swears by is bargaining. The traders raise the price to sometimes double the original cost. Ideally, one should bargain upto 20-30% of the quoted price. So if a trader quotes a price of Rs.200 for an article, bargain till Rs.120 or at the most Rs.150. Almost every major city in India has a chain of flea markets selling those knick knacks that you can buy for yourself and your friends back at home.
