Everyone who has ever lived in Bermuda or visited our shores knows about Trimingham’s. Founded in 1842 at Waterville (current home of the Bermuda National Trust) Trimingham’s grew to be Bermuda’s largest department store and long-held its place on Bermuda’s famous Front Street. Trimingham’s closed in July 2005 and while locals and visitors alike miss the store greatly, one can continue to find vintage Trimingham’s items on eBay and Etsy.

 

Vintage Trimingham’s Silk Scarf  – $28.00

Vintage Trimingham’s Bermudiana Tea Cup and Strainer – $14.95

Afternoon tea, old-school Bermuda style. Sipping a perfectly brewed cup, maybe of the locally made loose leaf teas by NovelTea Bermuda, can only be improved by this adorable cup and strainer set. The Bermudiana pattern is so delicate and unique it can make any cup of joe a Bermudian event.

 

 

Trimingham’s Bermuda 1930s Beaded Handbag – $95.00

The gold embossed print on the interior of this bag states “Made in France Expressly for Trimingham’s Bermuda”. The vintage beading on the piece is a testament to Parisian artistry while the Trimingham’s seal of approval is a testament to the shop buyers in the 1930s. We can’t imagine a more special ‘something old’ for a Bermuda wedding than this distinctly bridal clutch.

Understated Bermuda charm and history are woven into the very pattern of this great necktie. At under ten dollars, this classic Trimingham’s formal wear is the perfect souvenir or gift.

 

 

Vintage Trimingham’s Cricket Sweater – $245.00

A true Somerset supporter cannot deny the attraction of this vintage Trimingham’s cricket sweater, regardless of the eye-watering price point. We wouldn’t recommend wearing this wool blend to the actual match for fear of heatstroke, but its timeless style and stellar condition make it a great investment for showing off your Cup Match colors all year round!
