Nowadays started going to all exhibition making me go crazy but visiting
The Winter Folly , something close to my heart really loved it to the core at Karya Townhall’s, Kensington Terrace, Rutland Gate 4th Street, Nungambakkam On 21st January. It’s really a unique Sunday market which is a space for like-minded folks to meet and interact with creators doing unique, wonderful things. Winter Folly intends to have some awesome products on showcase. From handcrafted accessories, gifts for your loved ones, jewellery, sarees , cloth bags , pickles, chocolates, sauces , jams and bakes – all vegan, ofcourse which you can check out everything under one roof. You will definitely love especially if you’ve always considered making the switch to being a vegan.
Winter folly is an unconventional market by local entrepreneurs and an event hosted by a group of homegrown entrepreneurs united by a shared passion for all things local, organic, eco, vegan and sustainable. This is not your usual marketplace. It’s a space for like-minded folks to meet and interact with creators doing unique, wonderful things.Veganism is a way of living which seeks to exclude, as far as is possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose. So I was so much excited to visit this Sunday market.
