Just listed this Vintage 1970s Old Fashioned Decanter Set with 4 tumbler glasses by Gorham Crystal - all in like new mint condition.


Mercantile, that's all.

Mercantile. What a lovely, evocative word!

A small cozy shop.
A glass top counter.
Chocolates to tempt us.
An old Mason jar filled with free lollipops for the kiddies,
Kiddies of all ages.

A wide plank floor, a sloping tin ceiling.
Rough hewn walls - just barely visible behind shelves,
Shelves tacked with bolts of fabric - calicos, ginghams, tweedy woolens.

An ancient cash register, hand operated by a wizened, kindly shopkeeper wearing a crisp work apron.

In one corner, a cooler grumbling and chuckling over its assortment of soft drinks.
A bottle opener fastened to the wall.
Sacks of flour and birdseed.

Bins filled with peanuts and dried beans.
A geriatric hound, wheezing and snorting beside an old wood stove.

And up on the highest shelf, a whirring oscelating fan stirring the fragrant dust of ages.

Welcome to Miranda Mercantile!
