My wife and I want to go to shops that sell Indian sarees. As my wife's interest in sarees is new since her last visit a few years ago, we are not too sure where we should go to find a reasonably broad selection of stores that sell sarees. We figure that Brick Lane would be a good bet, but where else might we check?
Also, we are looking for a shop, or shops, that sell shoes that are not made of leather (ie vegetarian shoes). I know of a few online shops in the UK and the US (and have even ordered some dress shoes from a US online shop), but we are looking for somewhere where one can actually try on the shoes: mail ordering shoes is really not all that practical! Any ideas?
