Birthday gift hunting is over!!!! Just like that.. a snap of fingers! Yesterday we went to church street..
Let me start from the beginning.. yesterday, post lunch,I felt like buying myself some stuff from cotton world.. a small price to pay to feel better.. there was a sale and it was empty!! So both of us bought a couple of things.. and then from Barton center we walked over to Blossoms..
Blossoms is an old old old bookshop.. housed over 2 floors.. its been there for ages.. and it has all kinds of books. You ask and you get.. books stacked up right upto the ceiling.. cupboards after cupboards.. 2 people cannot stand side by side to check books.. thats how it is and I absolutely love it!!! If there is any book you cannot find in town.. Blossoms is the place to go to. It has the oldest books possible. Its an absolute thrill.So anyway happy with my book purchases and general browsing.. we walked over the Indian Coffee House..
You know, such places .. places. like Blossoms and Indian Coffee House.. they have this quaint feeling about them... they make you feel warm and cozy and wanted.. the mechanical baristas and the crosswords of the world can never be as charming!! It actually feels magical.. the smell of books.. the peeling paint.. the people who actually know about books / rustle up this delicious omlette and a smoking hot filter coffee!! In fact Blossoms is the place I found this old old version of not so famous PG Wodehouse.. it is like being smack in the middle of a treasure hunt!! And today we went to Koshy's...another one of the stalwart places here in bangalore.. checked table cloth.. sweet servers.. nice simple food, simple people..
Anyway the point I was trying to make.. post an amazing filter coffee, we saw this another shop tucked away in a corner.. hidden with some 1000 bikes parked in front of it... called Hysteria.
What drew me to it.. I caught a glimpse of miniature guitars.. they looked so damned cute.. I had to have a closer look. It is a shop that keeps music paranphelia.. accessories.. tees, belts, framed photographs of elvis, oasis, bob marley etc.. wallpapers.. miniature guitars, drum sets etc..
We walked in and got hooked on.. I bought a tee for myself. Husband was completely enamoured by the frames and the wallpapers.. a tad expensive .. he was going to drop the idea when yours truly stepped in.. I bought him the Jimmi Hendrix framed poster ..
His birthday gift!!!!!!! Phew.
