Wow. This company — Miscellanea Discontinued Bathroomware — claims to have more than 50,000 pieces of discontinued “sanitaryware” — toilets, sinks, bathtubs — making it the largest such salvage place in the world. “Over 100 Retro bathroom colours in stock including,” they say: “Coral Pink, Sky Blue, Champagne, Turquoise, Sunking, Primrose, Flamingo Pink, Pampas, Indian Ivory, Linden Green, Bali Brown, Misty Blue, Harvest Gold, Oyster, Whiskey, Wild Sage, Bone, 2-tone including Lilas Jaspe and of course Avocado, Avacado or if you prefer Avacardo…”
As you may be able to tell by the spellings of Avocado, sadly for us Americans, MDB is in Surrey, England, far far away. To be sure, a trip to London is now on my to-do list. But the heck with Big Ben — I’m going for the bogs! Oh, did I mention their website, brokenbog.com? I am taking it that bog = toilet?
Miscellanea says it has collected all these pieces by buying about-to-be discontinued stock direct from manufacturers. They add, “Whether you’ve got a smashed Sepia cistern or a broken Bermuda Blue bidet we can help, rather than going to the expense, disruption and downright mundanity of having a complete new White suite fitted.”
“The downright mundanity of white…” — These are my kind of people – and they now go into our Top Ten Bathroom posts.
