The Secret Museum of Bermuda

SIMG_7417ome of the things in Masterworks Bermuda’s storage room are the signs for the H.A. & E Smith and Triminghams. There is at least one other lost stores sign. They are the original items.

Anyway, I’ve seen a couple of articles about how you can still buy things from these closed stores. It’s done by going to places like Etsy, eBay, Poshmark, etc. that sell used or secondhand items. Although I have found more than one new with tags items, such as the huge Bermuda shorts in a previous post.Triminghams Bag
The wildest item I have seen so far is this Triminghams bag which is for sale on eBay UK!

I have to agree with the reviewer on Trip Advisor that:

Many old, great stores on Front Street like Trimingham’s and H.A. & E. Smith are gone and replaced by banks, re-insurance firms, and tee-shirt shops. Yesteryear was much nicer.

I liked it better when there weren’t traffic jams too!

But you can still do some shopping online and find the Triminghams handbags.

And even a shopping bag to put it in!

Point Finger Road.

Not sure why this hasn’t made it to the net yet, but I am now fixing that.
