Antique Shopping in Jodhpur: What to Buy and Where to Pick them from 

Rajasthan is a decadent destination and a big lure for history lovers. Armed with its elephantine forts and infested with countless palaces, this north-western state in India is a one-of-a-kind destination. Besides Udaipur and Jaipur, another city which you must include in your travel packages is Jodhpur.
Jodhpur is a city famous for its monuments, landmarks, food and shops. A shopper looking for antique items would have a surprisingly good time at this corner. If you love to dig your hand into piles and mounds of antiques, then Jodhpur is your perfect paradise.

Here are some of the most coveted antique items that you should go sniffing after:
Pottery: Pottery items are quite popular amongst avid shoppers. And places like Rajasthan Art Emporium sell them in huge and eclectic numbers.

Paintings: If you are a fan of classic painting, then you can scourge the local bazaars and art houses to grab some of the most appealing ones at really yummy prices. However, be prepared to haggle a bit! Sun City Art Exporters is one recommended place where you can get some antique paintings. Rajasthan Arts and Crafts House is another heady option. Alternatively, you can also shop for wall hangings and pictures that have that quaint and classy touch. 

First-edition books: If you are a bookworm then this point should be of some interest to you. How good would it be if you can grab a first edition book of a Jane Austen novel or an Agatha Christie classic? Yes, there are some old book shops which have some really attractive collections of first-edition books. But do not enter those stores with your tongues salivating! If you display your greed so explicitly, then they may raise the prices. A smart shopper may be craving for a product from within, but he must stay stoic from outside.

Old furniture: Jodhpur tourism also prides itself on antique furniture. Chests, doors and cabinets carved in classic designs always enjoy a massive demand in this corner of the country.

Where to shop for antiques in Jodhpur: 

The best antique shops are huddled up in close proximity on the base of the Umaid Bhawan, a key Jodhpur attraction. Places like Rajasthan Art Emporium, Sun City Art Exporters, and Rajasthan Arts and Crafts House are the three most recommended shops to go on an antique shopping trail.
Though the prices of these items are not very exorbitant, if you have a low budget, you can also grab the cheaper fake imitations. After all, Jodhpur tourism knows how to take care of its budget-friendly tourists.
