This time Indian fair offers a lot of furniture items made from redwood. Every piece, should it be a four-leg or one-leg table, a stool, a chair, a pier mirror or a drawer, has an intricate carved floral ornament decorated with golden  string or thread and golden leaves, flowers or elephants.

I can’t say prices are low. I would rather say they are at least three times higher than in the country of origin of all the goods. However, those, who are not going to visit India, can afford to take something unique as a memorial gift from this bright country.

And a small box of Soan Papdi (250 g) is 300 roubles (Rs.324, or $5.2). It is not cheap. But it is very tasty. And if you have never been to India before, there is nothing bad to allow yourself spend little more to try something new.
