Exhibit Space In A Bandra Bungalow

A swing, stately white arches, pretty block printed fabrics, latticed grills, comfort laced with slight impatience. If you were born in the late 70s or early 80s and live around Bandra, then this mosaic of memories could be lurking somewhere in the back of your mind too. And it will play a fuzzy slide show in your head when we say "Patterns".

Housed in Bandra's famous Patkar Bungalow, Patterns was one of the first Anokhi-ish lifestyle stores in the city, which shut down over a decade ago. Owing to its pretty location and fascinating hammocks, it was one store that this Scouter did not mind accompanying her mother to on long shopping trips, even when she laboured over what cushion cover would go best with a rug. And whether we should get the rug at all. Since then, the bungalow has hosted a bunch of stores including Yamini, Escada and currently Goa's Snip Salon & Spa.

Memory Test

The reason we re-visit the Patkar Bungalow is because one of its residents - Aarti Patkar - is finally renting out its garden to you. If you share her penchant for pretty things, that is. Let us explain. A former stylist and freelance event organiser with Fashion Week, Aarti wants to use the 1, 800 square feet courtyard behind her house (as well as two indoor rooms) as a space to promote design and creativity. She calls it The Vintage Garden and can either add you to her curated list of events or you can pitch an idea to her. Garden State?

Coming up this Friday and Saturday (April 26 and 27) is The Vintage Garden's first event - a pop up store (free entry but email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it for an invite) featuring a fun mix of designers including Shahid Datawala, Suhani Pittie, Fluke Design, DBrain Clothing Co, Twist by Bambi & Ana and more, who will retail clothing, jewellery, accessories and furniture. While she hasn't fixed on upcoming events yet, Aarti has a ton of ideas including film screenings in a garden and recreating Chor Bazaar at the Patkar House, complete with actual vendors from the market.

We not only suggest that you score an invite to this weekend's Patkar Pop Up - for Patterns nostalgia and pretty acquisitions - but also that you think up a fun way to occupy this 1920s Colonial courtyard. In a manor of speaking, of course.

I have a 500 watt continuous 1000 watt peak

Inverter from "Sams Club". It works great in the car to run a lap top etc. 500 watts should give me a solid 4 amps continuous and 8 amps peak. My hedge trimmer which claims on the label it needs 2.6 amps, is well within this, but seems to run weak (I connect to the garden tractor battery, with the tractor running).
I suspect tools run weak because the inverter output is a modified sine wave, kind of half way between a sine wave and a square wave. I have noticed other power tools are functional, but seem to run a bit weak for some reason. I have run drills, reciprocating saws, and the hedge trimmer on the inverter
