 Welcome to Bombay as it was earlier called . 

We are very pleased  to be a part of Mumbai’s vibrant shopping scene adding our little bit to make the experience better. For the Mumbaikar who is used to running  around through out the day, time is a very precious commodity , one that cannot be wasted in the wrong shops bargaining over products which may be available at much better prices elsewhere. However, was the Mumbai shopping scene always so vibrant?  Perhaps not, if one were to look at  photographs of some vintage Mumbai shops & shopping streets.

Here’s a look at Vintage Mumbai… or Bombay from the yesteryears…
