I recently made a decision that I don’t really want to be working for my currently company for years and in fact I would quite like to leave as soon as I can. It’s not an industry I am passionate about and watching my husband, who is passionate and talented in the industry, inspires me to go after something that I can really feel drive and satisfaction from. And so I have decided that I would like to open a shop in our main tourist district of Mumbai. Let me tell you a bit about it and then I have a small job for you, dear readers, to help me decide on a name.
The idea is that I would be selling Indian furniture and other locally made products – beads, homeware, tiling, flooring, cosmetics, silk fabrics etc – a mix of antique and new – plus would also showcase local artists and hold exhibitions. The shop will be air con, comfortable, spacious and contemporary, while still retaining a kind of bargain hunting feel.. ie not too snobby.
The image can be described as-
‘Genuine Indian’ products
It will (hopefully) be close to the many hotels and guesthouses in the South of Mumbai and so will aim primarily for the tourist market and secondly for the local market.
I am currently location-hunting, which could take up to 6 months, plus another few months for renovations, so I am still a long way away from opening day.
Would like your suggestions for names. Let me know which one you like from below, or leave your own suggestion in the comments section. Look forward to hearing from you!
I was going to make a fancy poll here but am not that tech savvy I’m afraid, so instead I’ll make a list and I just need you to tell me which one you like in the comments. Imagine each one on it’s own, with a suitable font, logo etc.. ok?
So here’s the list:
