My husband and I love frequenting this little shop. Brenda makes herself available should you need her while allowing you to poke about taking your time to go through the shop. I have purchased at least three lamps from Brenda all of which are standouts in our home. While I take my time looking about my husband can be found searching through Brenda’s collection of bits and pieces in various boxes and drawers which he uses in various projects.  Ambiance is a lovely little shop, a place to frequent for that special something and a bit of conversation all while feeling right at home.

The owner of this story is so lovely and charming. She listens and help you find just what you are looking for. She can turn anything into a beautiful piece of art! I love going in here and seeing all the beautiful piece she has saved, made, or restored. I have bought I think 2 lamps now maybe 3 and she has fixed two old family gas lamps left to me by my great Aunt. They now are electric and sitting in my home. She sees how important your things are and treats them as her own. I would trust her with anything. What she was able to do and for such a reasonable price I was blown away. Will be going back for more amazing things. Have a couple of items I am hoping she can turn into lamps for me. The other stuff in the store is so outstanding. I always go in there if I am in need of a gift. I have found birthday gifts and thank you gifts and I tell you i know where I am headed for my holiday gifts as well. Stop in this amazing story even if it is just to say hello. The smile and welcome that greats you is sure to make you feel right at home

Last summer, while in Belfast, i chanced upon Ambiance. It was love at first blush. The shop is a haven for lamps, silver, trays, china, petit lovelies from around the globe. I felt forlorn this winter when my kitten jumped on and broke my favorite antique lamp, but not for long. Asked my husband to start up the car; it was time for a road trip. When I called to inquire about her winter hours and found out that we had the same days off, Brenda was gracious and offered to open at whatever time and day suited my needs! We made the 3.5 hour drive, to be welcomed once again by Brenda with her wonderful sense of hospitality, and her illuminated collection. We ended up purchasing 2 lamps that were just perfect. Thank you. This little shop is a treasure, and with Brenda at the helm, it is worth seeking out.

Love at first blush…

Warm, wonderful and absolutely delightful. Brenda is a gem and so is her shop.

This is a fun, exciting, ever changing spot of culture and beauty. And, yes, ambiance, all made possible by a special owner with a special attitude toward connection and service. A treat to have it here in the midcoast region.

I’m not sure where else in the world one can go to find such a gem of a shop! From chic to antique to funky, Brenda’s offerings are eclectic in the very best sense of the word. Many treasures here, including the owner!!
