Brighton Show and Tell

I love Brighton. I always looked forward to going to the airport, because I could pick up a piece there. I love the jewelry and their fancy sunglasses. Talking to a friend at church, which I lovingly refer to as a Brighton church (the ladies love Brighton too), she asked if I had been to the new Brighton store!!!!!!
A store of our very own...and not that far away! Well, I was there Monday bright eyed and ready to shop! The store is absolutely beautiful...even the outside has the signature Brighton hearts for door handles....
Anyways, just thought for Show and Tell I would show all my Brighton tins...cuz they are part of the fun of the jewelry....
I know, it is silly, but I always keep my latest bag. I still have my Tiffany bag too....can't help it. Just brings back all the memories of going to the store and finding that special trinket.
PS. For all of you unfamiliar with Brighton, the jewelry and sunglasses, etc come in a tin. They also carry yummy purses and shoes. I have one purse.

Too cute! I am going to have to start paying attention when I am out and about now, for Brighton! I saved my tiffany bag too! Our daughter Jessica went to Tiff's in NY on her big trip in 2004. This is the trip where our SIL proposed to her in Central Park on a carriage ride (sigh).
Thanks for sharing,
Connie

I'm not familiar with Brighton but I love the pretty bright colors of the tins and the bag.
I'll have to check and see where these stores are located.

I clicked over from Rue's and am delighted with your Show & Tell. I love Brighton! I have a couple pair of those Brighton sunglasses and a few other pieces. One pair of sunglasses has the silver birds. I have silver hair, these days. My g'daughter calls them Elvis glasses!Oh My!

We were in Branson(Mo), last September and I visited the new Brighton store, with a friend who is also a Brighton kinda gal! She convinced me I "needed" the above mentioned bird sunglasses! Somewhere in my photo archives, I have a photo of the doors to that store!

Have a wonderful weekend!

I especially enjoyed this post because I'm a "Brighton Lady". I have many of the same tins as you. I love their stores. I love their sunglasses, but I have prescription sunglasses so that's out.
