It's said that there's always a Lepakshi exhibition in town. Unfortunately it's not true, so make the best of it when one's around. Like this.
The Lepakshi Handicrafts showroom at RTC X Roads is organising an exhibition of handicrafts and handlooms from 23rd June. A mini exhibition with about 30 stalls, the display contains saris, dress material, tapestry and bed covers in the handloom section; and wall hangings, paintings, showpieces, key chains, marble statues, brass and copperware in the handicrafts section.
But the highlights of the exhibition are definitely the Kondapalli and Etikoppaka toys. Then there are the artificial jewelry items such as garnet necklaces, jewelry from semi-precious stones, pearls, ear and finger rings, attracting girls and women.
Flavored betel nuts, saffron, sweetened and flavoured saunf, mouth-freshners, digestive pills and churans from Rajasthan are worth a buy. There are a couple of stalls displaying handloom dress material and hand-printed readymades, and handloom saris from Venkatagiri, Narayanpet and Pochampally.
There are no entry charges, and the exhibition is open to the public from 10:00am to 9:00pm on all days till 1st July. Please contact Lepakshi at 2766-8178/2762-0115 for further details.
