The Bombay Company and My Teapot

Do you  remember the Bombay Company here in the US? I believe almost all of the stores have been shut down here in the States. I do miss it though!!

When I initially set up home, I bought a few pieces of furniture from there. I was lucky that there was a Bombay store outlet close to my home in North Carolina. I picked up stuff at incredible prices!! Last weekend when I was in Vancouver, I spotted the store and decided to walk in :)  The store looked great and their signature blue and white pottery collection was still very much around. I picked up this teapot for a mere 15 bucks!!! I still need to figure out the best place for it in my china cabinet. For now it sits happily on my window with my favorite classics soaking in some sunshine :)

Here's a shot of my pretty teapot that has come all the way from Canada.......

I wish SO much that Bombay was still here! I LOVED that store and bought quite a bit of blue and white pieces from them. I also don't know why they left, do you? LOVE your new teapot! XO, Pinky

I do remember the Bombay shops and was sorry to see them close their stores in the US. The teapot you bought there is beautiful!

Boy do I ever remember Bombay. I was both a store manager and a district manager for many years. I sure do hate that this company went out of business and it broke my heart when the US stores closed. There was word that the company was going to try to start an online business again, but I have not heard anything else about that. Great teapot!

Oh, it's good to know that Bombay Company is still in business. Like you, I miss them not being here in the states. I always enjoyed popping into the store to see their pretty things. I have some of their blue and white from years ago. ;-) Glad this little teapot found its way to your home.
