While on a whirlwind trip to London a few weeks ago I boarded a train to Brighton on the south coast for a day of cool air, sunshine and of course shopping! Many friends had told me the vintage delights to be had in Brighton and they were not wrong. I had a pre booked ticket and had allocated myself a few hours in Brighton, knowing that I am not fond of the beach (very un- Australian of me I know) I wanted to concentrate on the village centre.
The Lanes of Brighton are just beautiful and I was slightly overwhelmed by the choice of vintage stores. Seriously, you have to go there if you are a keen vintage addict or thrifter, it was heavenly! The streets are colourful and cafes line The Lanes in abundance, it reminded me of Australia and the outdoor lifestyle there. I haven't really seen a city or town in Europe with as many as Brighton. I may have bought some delightful tea cups and saucers from one of the vintage stores too, I just couldn't help myself! It was called Snoopers Attic and was filled with booths and booths of vintage. Just about everything you could imagine.
