STORES/ SHOPPING CENTRES, Mumbai
this is one of many enclosed markets that have little aisles jam packed with clothes and handicrafts. Be prepared to haggle...you can get beautiful lenghas, salwars (ready made and stiched to order). I liked it cause it was across the street from my family's apartment building!
This place is good, but its difficult to access during the evenings owing to a bad traffic around the place.
its got some good outlets and is buzzing with a young crowd and once you are done shopping, you have a couple of restaurants around to take care of ur appetite!

In Bombay, there is a booming business of local designers teeming with creativity. The Courtyard the best place to see high end local designer shops, whether it's jewellery, clothes or other items. It is housed in a British-era structure, converted into a luxury shopping centre, located in Colaba just south of the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel.
I am lucky enough to work in Colaba, and often when I get some time I do visit the local artifacts shops around the place. I know this place quite well and its definitely worth a visit if you are serious into some handicrafts and artifacts shopping in Mumbai.
Plus point about this shoppe is that it is spacious, and at the heart of south Mumbai nearby the Gateway of India.

It will be best to shop in Santacruz (West) for stitched Indian style dresses for women. Linking Road and ELCO on Hill Road in Bandra (West), Vile Parle (East), Dadar (West and East) are also good for shoes, designer style clothes and jewellery. Pramanik at Matunga and Gandhi Market near Sion are also worth visiting for better options. Mangaldas Market in Bhuleshwar is the ideal place if you want to buy different types of cloth materials to get your dresses stitched by a tailor as well as the Zaveri Bazaar nearby for all your jewellery needs. Sarees are best at a whole row of shops at Marine Lines and Dadar (West). Some of the shops have their own tailoring departments which may get your stuff ready in a couple of days if you request them or mention an emergency.
What to buy: There is a wide range of stuff that is available in the different places in Mumbai's many markets, some with only one type of stuff being sold whereas some have a range of different items.
What to pay: From a few hundreds of Rupees to a few thousands to even a few hundred thousands sometimes depending on the type of things you wish to buy!!!
Try FabIndia for some really good bedsheets, duvets, pillow covers, etc. They have a shop at Fort opposite the University building. But this will be expensive too. For cheaper options you can go to the shops in the three lanes outside the Dadar railway station on the Western side. There are a few shops where you will get them here too.
In big stores like the Shop No. 12, Indian Mercantile Mansion, Wodehouse Road - opposite Regal Cinema prices aren't to be bargained and in this store in particular I found them very low.
Prices a little bit higher but a wider choice at The Bombay Store, Sir P.M. Road, Fort
What to buy: palm leaf painting
gem stone stationery
wood desk accessories
hand made paper
and much MUCH more!!
Designer's Choice sells Indian clothing and even if my master of bargaining said I should have discussed longer the price and reduce it further, I was very satisfied with the panjabi dress (loose trousers tightened at the waist and the ankles and on them a long tunic) I bought and then an Indian woman praised my purchase ;-)..
I needed to buy films for my camera and someone who likes photography and is a good photographer too addressed me at the FotoCentre - digital imaging products
