Karaikudi - Shopping

You could go slightly crazy here - the antique shops are overflowing, the best picks being the quaint pewter jars, oil and cans, mugs and bowls in lovely blues and greens imported from Czechoslovakia (Rs 50 upwards); the lacquer -work Burmese bamboo boxes and bowls that gleam in blacks, reds and browns
( Rs 200 upwards ); and the furniture, if you know wood well. For collectors, there are record players, telephone, crystal, ceramic, china, old pictures, wooden artefacts , jars of face cream and hair pomade imported from the UK a century ago, wooden chests from China...
