I don't have the confidence that you do. Basically, I felt this way years ago when I bought the stock, and have only seen depreciation since. I have questions about their management, and I have questions about even their business itself. do the Peter Lynch thing. Just go inside their mall stores and see the lack of traffic. Like I wrote, I personally like their products, but looking around in the world, their style of dark colored, off-beat furnishings just isn't so popular. IKEA is always packed, and there is nothing anywhere close to the color match of Bombay. Maybe this style is simply not popular. And then if it is not popular for adults, just what will Bombay Kids do? Pottery Barn, the Gap - these are popular places for adults. Their kid stores do OK. But Bombay? I question if this will work out...

Thanks for letting me vent here, I just wanted someone else to read this. I will wait until the 1Q earnings report, but if it is not good, I'm out.
