Jan 26th, 2013, market roundup

Rococo Gallery played a charming, verdant, host to the 7th 220 flea market. With each market, we grow, we learn.. and this was no different. All our upcycler stars were there and some new friends as well, with their unused things finding their way into new homes.


Beanie babies, bum bags, lamps, tees, jewellery from plastic bottles, cookware, jerry can planters… and more, added so much colour!

A huge shout out, thank you, to all our sellers. Star volunteers Prrethi Prabhu, Saarus Nirhali, Aiyisha Razeek, and Chinanshu Sharma, for so untiringly managing the entry and registration desk!

Thank you also to those who gave to the 220 fund; Poornima Bhola, Shylin David, Swapna N, Mamma’s Kitchen, Shwetha Mathew, Rabi Rathnakar, My Sunny Balcony, Vaishak, and Nirmala for supporting us with contributions, which will go into getting some PR material done for our next market.

We had so many conversations about taking the market to new venues. And while we work on that… keep recycling!
