FLINT is a concept borne out of our love of travel and the quest to find unusual and beautiful things to enhance your life, sourced from around the globe.

Our collection has evolved over the years and we now support more makers and designers closer to home, constantly drawn to those who make products both mindfully and ethically. 

A new collection of own-label clothing will be launched in 2021 and we shall be expanding our range of apothecary. If you'd like updates on our plans, please join our mailing list for our monthly newsletter.


 A little bit about us...

We are a mother and daughter team who set up shop in the historic market town of Lewes in 2002. Our first bricks and mortar shop was housed in a small 15thC premises at the top of the High Street and then a few years later we moved to a much larger space, a converted 14thC chapel, a little way up the road.

After 16 very happy and successful years there, we decided it was time for a change and made the decision to move our business online, just before the pandemic struck. Although we'll be sad in many ways to leave the High Street, we are feeling positive and energised about the future and are now looking forward to bringing you some of our favourite things via our online store.

Please note that we are handling all web orders as fast and as efficiently as possible and are continuing to despatch orders worldwide. Orders may take a little longer to process at the moment, so we'd be grateful if you could please bear with us. Don't forget, we ship worldwide.
