Shopping in Chor Bazaar

Chor Bazaar is the "thieves market" so called because on a visit to India by Queen Victoria she was robbed and her belongings turned up in Chor Bazaar.  Today it is the home to all kinds of things - some old junk, some beautiful antiques.  I went shopping there earlier this year and bought an old desk, which the school sanded down, varnished and replaced the handles to and turned it into a lovely little workplace for me.  This time I went down with Sharon and Jenni as they were looking for items for their apartments.
