While venturing through the Hill Road market stretch, we also stumbled across an unnamed stall, lying diagonally opposite to St. Stanislaus High School. This stall, although with a comparatively smaller setup than other ones on the stretch, had cutesy offerings instead of the usual tree decorations. The stall, which has graced the market for 7-8 years, features beautiful candles and candle stands, serveware, and Christmas-themed decor that can transform any corner of your home.

Sandra, the sister of the stall owner mentioned, "Living in Bandra, we all immerse ourselves in the festive cheer with decorations, sweets, and more. Being predominantly Catholic, the community here celebrates with gusto, exchanging gifts through the tradition of Secret Santa."

Apart from this stall, there's also a vendor outside St. Stanislaus High School, selling a charming assortment of Christmas wreaths in various sizes. So if you're looking for cheap yet durable festive wreaths, head here for sure!

The 7 & Seven store in the area is also currently brimming with an array of Christmas decor, offering everything one might need. Meanwhile, the clothing stores are adorned with ready-to-wear Christmas outfits, including vibrant T-shirts with festive prints to amplify the holiday spirit.

Other than this, the Damian showroom is dazzling with its annual front display window adorned with vibrant and beautifully lit festive delights. Featuring enchanting decor themes, gnomes, baby Jesus, elves, Santa Claus and several other props, each element is meticulously decorated - creating a captivating Christmas showcase.
