Artificial flowers and antique frames are the highlights of the expo
VIJAYAWADA: In a world of artificiality, people are inclined to recreate nature with artificial flowers, creepers, and plants that have natural colours and sensuousness, in addition to quality and appearance, in their houses. If you are one among this bevy of people looking for decorative articles, your search probably ends at Yiwus Expo being organised at Madhu Chowk in Moghalrajpuram.
The organisers promise to offer special collection, including antique frames, ceramic and porcelain dolls at the expo, which will be on till October 22.
And, of course, there are flowers, bouquets and creepers that have a message, a flavour, a shape and an aspect that means something.
While bunches are available from Rs. 115, creepers are priced from Rs. 95 onwards.
With interest towards antique frames catching up, more and more people are looking for replicas of pistols and firearms that were in use during the British period. So, the organisers have lined up models of firearms that are neatly framed.
These antique frames cost anywhere between Rs. 800 and Rs. 8,500, depending upon the number of models used in the frame, says Satish Agarwal, expo organiser.
There are trendy ‘jhoolas’ (swing) available for Rs. 1,150.
Vijayawada MP Lagadapati Rajagopal, who inaugurated the expo on Saturday, could not resist sitting and swinging in the ‘jhoola’ for a while. A modern version of ‘Keelu Gurram’ (rocking horse) is also in the list of exhibits. ‘Rocking horses’ carefully covered with velvet are offered for Rs. 1,400 to Rs. 2,000.
Children up to the age of five years can easily use these horses, says Mr. Agarwal.
Bamboo partitions, cane baskets, ceramic pots, metal stands, fountains, designer class wear and home decorations are some of the other collections that are on display.
