Chorr Bazaars in India are just like the Flea Markets in America & Street Markets of Europe. As per the Oxford dictionary, word Flea market comes from the French marché aux puces, a name originally given to a market in Paris which specialized in shabby second-hand goods of the kind that might contain fleas. But, the Chorr Bazaar, in Hindi means “Thieves Market” and people used to visit such markets to buy goods at well bargained price, far below the cost, as if they were stolen. Well, during the British rule in India, stolen goods also started finding their way into these markets and resulting in it living up to name! But now a days,the literal meaning of Chorr Bazaar is a Market for Old & Used goods, sold at the prices so cheap that the deal becomes as good as a Steal.
Lets take an example of Mumbai’s famous Chorr Bazaar where bargain-hungry buyers can find anything from old ship parts, grandfather clocks and gramophones, to crystal chandeliers, old English tea sets, authentic Victorian furniture, wonderful for browsers, antiquarians and restorers.These days it’s famous for antique and vintage items .So, Literally meaning Thieves Market, Chorr Bazar is a chaotic street flanked by numerous antique shops, where you can buy used old goods, discarded & outdated home accessories which some times have the price tags much lower then to their original price. But in some cases where the Item is rare or an antique then it may fetch a price many times of its cost at the time, when it was new.
