Bermuda Shopping Spree

By Anita Draycott

Trimingham’s, Gosling’s and most of the big-name storeowners on Hamilton’s Front Street had pirates for ancestors. Nowadays, as my cab driver joked, “They don’t call it piracy, they call it tourism.” But there are bargains to be found. Look for half-price deals on cashmere sweaters. For classic Bermuda shorts and knee-highs, the English Sports Shop has every colour combination. Yes, Bermudian gents do sport the shorts and socks with tie and blazer as proper business attire. Buy Gosling’s potent Black Seal Rum and ginger beer so you can concoct Bermuda’s national cocktail, the dark ’n stormy, on your patio back home. A dash of Outerbridge’s Original Sherry Rum Peppers Sauce spices up seafood chowder.
