    Hello All,
    Thanks you one and all for your valuable reply.
    I found the vig, hair design at malleswaram 10th cross,bangalore.
    and lot of dress collections for marapachi too..
    most of the shops in malleswaram are selling and they have put it in display in platform itself, so it is useful to find it.
    They have designed and dressed marapachi also ( looks like meenu's attachment, thanks meena)

    And you can also customize by buying dresses and chains too. From my experience im telling its better to take your marapachi to get the exact dress size.
    coz i found hair design is not suits for my doll since doll is small one.

    As per shop keepers we can expect golu dolls after 25th.

    Regards
    Shanthagomathi

    Dear Meena,

    You will get lots and lots of dolls in malleswaram around the 1st week of october. Also try Jayanagar 4th block, inside the complex. tehre are few shops who sell these items.
    My mother has been collecting dolls for the last 40 years, and all of them are bought at Malleswaram. We have sets like cricket, kalyanam, tennis, desert, etc. all kinds of sets are there. She would usually go on the vijayadashami day or the next day and get it. it will be damn cheap if we buy around that time. we would pack them separately and will keep them as new set for the next year.
