Carol’s Shop and Tea Room
A full time model, Carol Humtsoe, started a vintage store from the top floor of her home in Dimapur, Nagaland. With a keen eye for fashion pieces and a distinct sense of personal style, Carol sources a lot of collectables during her travels to Nepal, Dharamshala, Rishikesh, Delhi, Bombay, Bangkok, Nagaland and New York. Frequented by people in the fashion industry and college students alike, her store is essentially a place where she curates clothes, books, accessories, teas, cups and all the things she loves. An edit of Carol’s shop is now available at Alternative, a cafe and concept store in Goa.
