A Unique Bric-a-Brac Market Sells Salvaged Goods From Broken Ships
I’d love to explore the many treasures of Sahajanand Enterprises, and Indian market recently featured on Atlas Obscura, which sells items salvaged from retired ships.
The settee he points to isn’t new. Neither are most of the other items in Baraiya’s Sahajanand Enterprises, a furniture store specializing in second-hand items sourced from old ships after they are ripped up and dismantled in the adjacent graveyard. This is one of dozens of second-hand shops that line the 6-mile market stacked with goods large and small, old and very old, everyday and extraordinary; from doors and tea sets to mattresses, soft-serve ice cream machines, and lifebuoys. To pore through some of these stores is to encounter a bric-a-brac from the banal to the esoteric; light bulbs, speakers, and analog television sets brushing up against world maps, espresso machines, dart boards, and models of ships.
