FLINT is housed in a beautiful 14th Century building in the historic market town of Lewes and is a truly individual boutique. We set up shop in 2002 and since then have strived to find all sorts of wonderful, unusual and stylish things inspired by our love of travel. A carefully chosen collection of beautiful clothes, bags, scarves and shoes are upstairs on the first floor complemented by perfumes from boutique brands such as Miller Harris, Jardin d'Ecrivains, Cote Bastide together with natural skincare from This Works and AS.AP Apothecary. Fresh flowers are available all year round, they're for sale on the ground floor where we offer our floristry service. We also sell an interesting, carefully edited selection of books and music and a range of homeware sourced from around the world. 

Our website is a just a taste of what we do - we hope you can come and visit us someday...


Tom Homewood at FLINT

June 09, 2014
