Tinsel Bright Trading Co. is open for the season.

Saturday was the first official day of Spring and the re-opening day of my friend Muriel's fun little shop Tinsel Bright Trading Co. Located in the heart of down town Gorham (just outside of Portland), the shop houses Fancy Goods and Vintage Furnishings, a little old and a little new.

I just love the front window display of the white picket fence and garden of cabbages. (The cabbages were found at the Christmas Tree Shop and then dusted with green glitter for an extra special touch). The cart in the window also showcases fruits and vegetables and is one of my favorite pieces.

Here are two views of the cart. Vintage Easter theme books add to the vignette.

Inside the store you will find items such as a vintage saddle, collection of paint by number horse paintings and a collection of porcelain horses. (Gorham is home to 4 horse riding academies, FYI.)

For something softer and sweeter, Tinsel Bright sells lovely nightgowns, soaps, perfumes and other lovely toiletries (Just in time for someone's Easter Basket or for Mother's Day.)

Vintage dishes, artwork and furnishings are also on display.

These are just a few photos of their inventory. If you are up in the area, please be sure to drop in. Hours are Thursday and Friday 11 - 6, Saturday 11-4. Muriel will love to meet you.

I also just wanted to remind everyone of my upcoming giveaway celebrating 100 followers. The giveaway ends April 15th. I apologize for the wait, my work is keeping me out straight till then. At least it will give everyone that wants too, ample time to enter. It also means I have more time to add a few more treasures to the giveaway prize. This is so much fun! Thank you to all who enter.
