Bombay Electric

I first came across Bombay Electric a year ago and happened to serendipitously land there again today.

Remember my trip to my favorite antique store in NY? And remember the antique brass paan dhaan I came away with? On my last trip there, the store owner was waxing eloquent about paan dhaans shaped like peacocks and vintage ambassador cars, that he had seen in villages in India. I wondered what they might look like....



Bombay Electric, gave form to my murky imagination......

Some other stuff from the quirky store... vintage maharaja postcards, lithographs and even an antique portable khadi handloom spinning set! Now I wonder what one might do with buying the last item on the list...
