Eight years ago, we started a tradition in Pune, one that Punekars love for its energy and uniqueness- the Diwali Late Night Bazaar. We had the first one on a whim. For four days, the week prior to Diwali, we'd spread out our beautiful range of furniture and home decor in our equally beautiful gardens! Plus, we'd throw our lawns open to other exhibitors, who brought in jewelry, apparel and more home decor. The Bazaar stayed open till midnight, a merry mix of excited exhibitors and shoppers, street food stalls, musicians and yes, dedicated staff, who often reached home way past midnight. We subsequently changed the timing to 10 pm, and moved from four days to three, not because of a dearth of visitors, but because it simply got too tiring. Of course, everyone at Sanskriti Lifestyle loved the energy and enthusiasm of customers strolling even at that late hour! Now, eight years later, we are gearing up for our 8th Diwali Late Night Bazaar (18- 20 October). Watch this space for images of products on display at the Bazaar. We hope Pune enjoys the event as much as we enjoy hosting it!
Hi! I'm one of the founding members of Sanskriti Lifestyle, and have absolutely loved our journey from small, tucked-away little gift store to our new avatar of sprawling bungalows dotting our beautiful gardens. Our philosophy is to put a smile on our customers' face, as they stroll through the colonial bungalows and embark on a discovery of our (very!) diverse home decor and furniture. We want to help our customers create their unique living space, either through our beautiful products, or through our style tips and ideas. Follow this blog. Team Sanskriti hopes you will enjoy it!
