Bygone Beautys, home of the Treasured Teapot Museum, is one of the best-kept secrets in the Blue Mountains. After discovering Bygone Beautys in the village of Leura for the first time many visitors are pleasantly surprised and refer to it as ‘an emporium’ or liken it to what they would imagine the legendary Aladdin’s Cave to be.
These phrases are in response to the sheer number and huge variety of items on display in Bygone Beautys. Each room, including the Tearoom, is stocked from floor to ceiling with treasures – potential gifts – waiting to be discovered. The most common statements from visitors after viewing the antiques, collectables, jewellery, contemporary gifts, teapots and much more are: "It's a treasure trove", "It's like stepping back in time", and "What an unexpected surprise!".
The Treasured Teapot Museum is a significant Blue Mountains attraction, representing the world’s largest private collection of teapots. The Tearooms serve the famous Bygone Beautys Traditional Tea and Bygone Beautys Devonshire Tea.
Bygone Beautys is located close to the famous Leura Village Mall, and in response to demand the business is open seven days a week, excluding Good Friday, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.
