Ooty - Big Shop

Went to Big Shop Ootacamund (Ooty for short) couple of weeks ago to pick up some knobs,handles & knockers for the doors & cupboards in our new house. The Big Shop is very famous in Ooty for their wide and varied collection of antiques. Some of the spectacular & amazing  range of items on display are shown below. The weather in Ooty was glorious and we walked around the Commercial Street for long. We bought an assortment of home made chocolates - a confectionery for which Ooty is equally famous. We had a nice sumptuous & satisfactory lunch after which we headed back to Coimbatore.

  7. Nothing like home made chocolates there and the cold nights tucked up in some resort or house outside the crowded town ,sipping your favourite spirit!

  8. I haven't visited this shop, though I have visited Ooty a couple of times. It looks really unique!

    I too love homemade chocolates. We had tasted it in Munnar.
