Hi, everybody. I'm Dayna Spitz, the Global Shopping Editor from MarieClaire.com, and welcome to Delhi. Now, India's one of my favorite places in the world, Delhi in particular has great shopping. I'm gonna take you to all my favorite stores, and there are a lot of them. Right now, we're in Chandi Chowk. We're gonna go get some incense from this place that has like the best incense ever. We're gonna hit some other bazaars, some markets. We have a lot of things to cover. So, let's go and get shopping. We're in Chandi Chowk, one of my favorite places to get incense, called Gulab Singh. This has been around since 1816. Smell of [unknown], wow. It's incredible. And you can smell this. I can't find this anywhere but here, literally. So, I'm gonna buy a lot of this [unknown] here. So, we're inside of a shop called Play Clan, which is one of my favorite stores in Delhi. It's a little bit like Japanese anime with a lot of the Indian gods, and just Delhi life in India. This is Himanshu, who is the founder of the Play Clan. These are gorgeous. There's so many things. I mean, gosh, I know I'm gonna have to buy a luggage on this trip. Definitely get some of these. These are really fun, shocking shoppers. Eye spy. What do you think? Oh, I love the journals. These are 6, 7 dollars. I think I'm gonna go with girl Lakshmi.


Lakshmi is the goddess of fortune. These are just great, great gifts. "You Just Got Mugged", I love it. We're at one of my favorite costume jewelry places, it's called Jay Raj Arts, and it's in Khan Market. And their costume jewelry is unbelievable. So, I'm gonna show you some things that I'm sure I'm gonna walk out of here with a huge bag. Hi, [unknown] Sander. How are you? Oh, look how nice this is. He has such nice things. Oh, look at these. They're elephants. It's a wood ring with a silver ball, which is very cool. So that's like $3. I can't get it off my finger, aw. Oh. So, these are the pieces that I like. I just want you to give me prices, and the best price. And we're about to go in to one of my favorite stores in Delhi, the Good Earth. And it's a shop that's been around for 14 years. It started as a pottery studio, and now, it basically is a lifestyle store. Their dishes, I mean, they're just so, so, so beautiful. The detail work is just incredible. So, this is a collection that they're-- they collaborated with Manish Arora. So, you know, he's the main creative director for Paco Rabanne. And he did an exclusive design for them. And they're really fun, in there. For this, you get 2 tea plates and 2 tea mugs for 4,500 rupees, which is amazing. This is all china. I have my eye on some of this jewelry. It's all hand-woven and it has some silver pieces in it, it looks like like silver coins. You can do a lot of different things with this piece. It's super versatile 'cause they can even go longer. So I could probably even [unknown] it again. You could probably even do a really cool bracelet with it, you could use it as a belt. I mean, the possibilities are endless. A little bit over $100, it's a really unique piece. You're not gonna find this anywhere. We're at one of my favorite local markets called Lajpat Nagar, and they sell a lot of textiles. This particular stall called Ghoonghat has the most amazing scarf. This is 250?


Yeah? Oh, there are lots of colors in it. Nice, but there's so many. So, this is how they store everything. They just twist it, it would actually create this really cool texture. Oh, I like this one. This is a great one. Wow, I'll take this one. You just know it when you see it. Some will be for me, and some will be as presents. Okay. So, we're in a shop called Ogaan, and they have been around for over 20 years, and they specialize and carry a lot of high-end Indian designers, traditional stuff as well as in Indo-Western. SO, these are really fun. This is Anupama. And her stuff is really, really beautiful. Just with a white plain top and little sandals would look great. Okay. This will be my winner. It's like $139. And these are, I mean, beautiful silk pants. So, this is-- they're timeless, really. This shape is timeless. So, okay, that's actually a really good buy and it's form one of the really good designers here in India, happens [unknown] one of my favorites. Oh, I'm so excited. We're in a really great market called Dilli Haat. And what makes it so great is that it have artisans from all over India. So, if you can only get to Delhi, you come to Dilli Haat and it's really, really authentic, good quality, good prices. Your things are from Himalayas. Yes?

Yeah. [unknown].

These are so much fun. They look like mittens, but they're actually socks. Everything in this whole booth is either hand-wound or this is all hand-made. Mother of Pearl. There are bangles and then they have all of this detail. Wooden [unknown]?


It's very large. Like what? I mean, that's actually very cool. Okay, 450. We're in an area called JanPath, and we're in Mohan Garments. He does great things out of Guajarati textile. I love these dresses. They actually look very contemporary. And this is a great tote. And how much are these?

This one is for 500.

As you can see, I shopped my way through Delhi, which was so much fun, it never disappoints me. I hope you enjoyed going to all my favorite shops. I know I did. And I hope to be back here much sooner than last time. Bye, everybody.
