it is sad when some good artisans go missing. There used to be this Furniture shop in Nandanam, Sheikh's if I remember right, selling primarily Kashmiri Handicrafts and furniture. And then one fine day he shifted I guess and we have no clue where he has moved. I dont even know if he is in Chennai anymore.Their work was super good and now that we need to get some things done for the house, its sad we are unable to find someone close to their quality of work. We have checked out every other store selling similar wares, like the one near Stella Maris and some exhibitions. Somehow we feel it none of it holds a candle to the workmanship or the affordability that we saw with them.
Like they say, absence DOES make the heart grow fonder - in this case, for handicraft which is non nonpareil in Chennai

I know where he is. He has a store on Raman Street on T. Nagar. Still does furniture and knicknacks. I have his number somewhere. Will look for it.
