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 beautiful things to sell. A carefully chosen and ever changing collection of clothes and accessories, from ethically minded labels, are complemented by perfumes and skincare from exclusive brands such as Laboratory Perfume and Love Organics, Austin Austin, Evolve Natural Beauty and John Masters Organics, among others.. Bunches of our home grown, naturally preserved flowers are available all year round and we also offer our floristry service. We also sell an interesting, carefully edited selection of books and a range of things for your home, sourced both locally and from around the world.
Our website is a just a taste of what we do - we hope you can come and visit us someday...
