Why: Furniture strips down its fluff and festoon to bare iron legs, industrial shelves and distressed drawers at this new home store where ornate is a no-no and some products are “not even necessarily pretty”. Employing staff from the recently shut down Contemporary Arts and Crafts, here you’ll also find dishes by The Freedom Tree, jewellery inspired by steel bartans and a pretty ikhat top by Brass Tacks .
When: Bare in mind, it opens tomorrow, October 6.
What: Cremica mayonnaise by the bottle, call Neelam Aunty at 9821501151, pick up from a Khar home, price on request.
Why: It can be found at restaurants all over the city and even in a McDonald's burger, but this super delish eggless mayonnaise is woefully absent from grocery stores. Famous for her home cooking classes and fiercely passionate about burgers, Neelam aunty remedies this travesty by sourcing and retailing the brand straight out of her home. Condiment queen!

Why: On this otherwise pedestrian footwear site we found an accessory that made our toes curl: fun straps or “Heel Condoms” to jazz up everyday pumps in juicy orange and emerald green, sporting pretty flowers, embroidery and in one dubious case, a tuft of feathers. Rubber bands!
When: You want to dick and choose.
Why: How flattering for your wares to be the booty that distracted music fans from live performances by Imogen Heap, Basement Jaxx, Indian Ocean, Midival Punditz and other artists.
