Store Profile: Indya Kaleidoscope, Part II

I am inspired by this young lady - Preethi Prabhu of IK



Now for some more good news - Preethi has set up a beautiful brick-and-mortar (physical) store in Koramangla, Bengaluru  (India). And,  I had to share pictures of her amazing store on DE :-)..

So here we go....
