Soon as you lay your eyes at this nearly 40-year-old shop, an old-timey charm will pull you in. As you step in, you'll find decades-old Gramophone record players, antique telephones, Nawabi hookah, Awadhi paintings, old-style locks, pocket watches, antique lamps, and a lot more.

The store boasts elegant reprints of paintings of Nawabs like Asaf-ud-Daulah and his court, along with century-old paintings of historical Lucknow monuments like the Bada Imambara and Rumi Darwaza.

Furthermore, there's an entire set of Gramophone record players, with some dating back to the early 20th century. We also found an antique telephone at the store, still in perfect condition, and ready to amp up any living room wall with its historic charm.
