Sunday Junk Market Walk
It is 7 am on Sunday, when most of Lucknow is sleeping and has planned to get up late and lazily in a true Lakhnawi style, but there are a few who are walking on this unique stretch of the road that is now beginning to crowd with antique and scrap dealers, coming in with their collection, some real, some fake, some old, some broken and yet at times worth millions of pounds, but surely unknown to the scrap dealer himself – all this has to sell today. The collectors or the big dealers throng this weekly market, as early as possible, to get the best pieces before any one else could lay his hands on them.
We take you through this market and if luck favours you, you might find your much desired piece that might cost you a 1000 Pounds elsewhere. You walk down the road to explore each shop, just in case something catches your eyes. We help you to bargain and at times close a deal for you.
