So I was in Bombay for a day today. The parents had some medical stuff to sort out so I slipped off to Colaba Causeway to look around. I had heard a fair deal about it and really wanted to see for myself. Guess where I landed up? BOMBAY ELECTRIC! It was pretty serendipitous because I chanced upon it while wandering random by-lanes and boy, was I in for a treat.
It had been one of my must visit places for EVER and it was fantastic just being there and looking at everything they stocked. The store is very well curated and tastefully kitsch (If there ever were such a thing!). Of course, I bought nothing but I wish I had taken a Camera. And I realised that I love the brand name Gheebutter. It's so Indian and absolutely adorable.
Also, I went to Good Earth which was practically next door and I was completely floored by this Cashmere throw with a printed border. For 22000 odd smackers, I guess it can wait.
And the street shopping. Sigh, the street shopping! Nothing I could buy though, mostly girls' stuff but great to look at anyhow. Again stupid me for not taking the camera. Buuuuut, FUN!
