FLINT is housed in a beautiful 14th Century building in the historic market town of Lewes and is a truly individual shop. We first opened our doors 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 exclusive brands such as Abel, DS & Durga, Laboratory Perfume and Maya Njie together with natural and ethical haircare and skincare from Austin Austin, Honest, Aybury, Evolve Natural Beauty, Cult of Treehouse, Tincture, John Masters Organics, MOA Organic and Bamford. Fresh flowers and posies of preserved 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 a range of things for your home, 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...

We are open 10am - 6pm Monday to Saturday
